Australia is officially the drunkest country on Earth
Australia, the land down under who gave us the Hemsworth brothers, Hugh Jackman and, unfortunately, John Coleman, was officially named ‘The Drunkest Country on Earth in 2020’, according to the Global Drug Survey 2021.
The research put together responses from 32,000 people from 22 countries. What exactly was the main question “how many times did you get drunk in 2020?” Yes. I’m serious.
It turns out that respondents got drunk, on average, 14.6 times in 2020. Australias reported getting drunk 27 times, again on average, while at the opposite end of the scale we find Mexico, with an average 8.9 times.
Interestingly, the research was also looking for different answers, such as ”what is the one thing you’re trying to avoid while drunk?” as well as “why do you do it?”
People from Mexico, Spain and Brazil said their number one priority was ”avoiding harm”, while Finland said they drink “for fun”. Bwoah.
What do you think? How many times, if at all, did you get drunk and/or had a drink too many in 2020? Let me know in the comments below.
