A report by Global Drug has found that whilst fewer people are drinking alcohol overall, those who do appear to be doing it in a potentially harmful way.
Sky News reported that UK respondents to a survey undertaken by Global Drug, reported getting drunk 51.1 times in a 12-month period - almost once a week.
Sky News reporting said: “Not only do Britons get drunk more often, they also regret it less with only 18.5% of their drinking sessions feeling like a bad idea in the morning, compared with 20% globally.”
The survey was informed by more than 120,000 people from 36 countries - including 5,400 people from across the UK.
Women reported regretting their boozing more than men, but the data showed that generally people "overwhelmingly like getting drunk", the report said.
