According to some study published today, adults in the UK now drink the equivalent of 11.4 litres of pure alcohol every year. That works out at 189 bottles of wine (nine per cent proof), 37 bottles of whisky (40 per cent proof) or 1,137 pints of beer (3.5 per cent).

That's basically 3½ pints of beer a day. So given that a lot of people drink a lot less than that, and a lot of people don't drink much at all, that means that for the average to be 3½ pints a day, some people must be downing nearly 3 times that much to compensate for people like me who perhaps have 10 pints in a year.

As shocking / entertaining as this is, it's not making my cold feel any better :p
