    There's a real lack of moderation. I rarely drink alcohol myself and when I do it'll be for a special occasion and alongside a nice meal. I will never understand the desire for people to drink to get drunk, throwing up over themselves, getting into fights and other dubious situations. It's revolting.

    Statistically 17% of under 15s admit to trying alcohol in the UK. Sure this number is only 10% in the US but it's hardly some dramatic jump.

    Millennials are far less likely to smoke and drink than my generation.
    TBF there is an issue with 18-30s binge drinking. Granted I suspect this is slowly dying out but it's mostly fuelled by this ridiculous tribal notion that you 'have' to drink to be accepted

    That was one age range, 18-26 has also had a dramatic drop as well. There's been a 40% drop in drinking in people in that age range in just 10 years.

    The UK as a whole has seen a 25% drop in alcohol consumption in a short space of time.

    It's about time people's notions of the UK catch up.

    By contrast the US has increased.

    This age range has seen a big drop in total drinkers but a rise in binge drinking. It's like far fewer people are drinking but more people who do drink are drinking more. Like these Tory twats.
