The drunkest countries in the world

A new global survey has found that the United States is not the drunkest country in the world. But, we are number two on the list.

England is at the top, with the British getting intoxicated an average of 51.1 times a year. The U.S. is close behind at 50.3 times a year.

Here’s a rundown of the top 10:

  1. England
  2. United States
  3. Canada
  4. Australia
  5. Denmark
  6. India
  7. Ireland
  8. Mexico
  9. Czech Republic
  10. Finland
  11. Belgium

In case you were wondering, the global average is about 33 drinking sessions per year – which is a bit less than our habit of once-a-week.
