Based on the Statistics on Alcohol, adults aged between 25 to 44 years old are considered the UK’s heaviest drinkers in hiding. Recent statistics indicate that these individuals drink much regularly and much more than young adults. The statistics show that adults mostly drink at least six or eight bottles of alcohol a day among the men and women aged 25-44. Respectively, 25% of men and 20% of women have achieved this particular feat.
The chief executive of the Drinkaware alcohol education charity group , Chris Sorek, states that it is something great to see a fall in the average weekly alcohol consumption among young adults. However, the results of their efforts still seems far as many young adults still binge on alcohol, increasing their dependence on the substance’s capability to relax and somehow ‘loosen’ them up.
The British Medical Journal notes that a person should just drink around 5g of alcohol a day. This is in contrast to the Government recommendation of having 24-32g of alcohol a day for men and a bit less for women, dropping to 16-24g.
Drinking is probably one of the most hardest to avoid vices in the country. While alcohol can clean the blood and the body, binge drinking can harm the kidneys and the liver. It is estimated that the recommendation of 5g by the British Medical Journal can save around 4,600 lives yearly in the country.
