Scots Can Out Drink Anyone With 46 Vodkas Bottles A Year!


A whole new meaning to drink up! According to a study, not even a study, Common Knowledge! people from Scotland drink 46 bottles of vodka for some drunken delights (but truthfully, NHS Health Scotland determined this by looking at industry sales data.)

From 2005-2009, alcohol sales averaged 12.2 litres per person over the age of 18, the same as 537 pints or 130 bottles of wine per person. Goodbye liver!

The Scottish government’s solution? Raise the minimum price on alcohol

“Scottish Health Secretary Nicola Sturgeon said it was time for critics of minimum pricing to “wake up” to the scale of Scotland’s drink problem. As “all the evidence tells us that the big rise in Scottish alcohol consumption in recent decades is closely linked with the 70% drop in alcohol’s relative cost. As a consequence, our country now faces an unprecedented burden from alcohol-related health problems, crime and lost economic productivity, which runs into billions and which we are all paying for. Currently there is nothing to stop supermarkets selling alcohol more cheaply than bottled water and that’s why it’s possible to exceed the weekly drinking guidelines for a man for less than £3.50.”

Since Scottish do tend to go over the prescribed amount of alcohol, this is a clogged liver and heart attack waiting for a time and place to happen.

Maybe they haven’t heard of this yet though it’s just as bad. Addiction is addiction baby
