Portugal with lowest alcohol abuse cases in pre-covid study

Drinkers in Scotland and England reported to have rates of alcoholism more than double those in Portugal

The UK leads a table with the highest rate of alcohol use in the world, while Portugal has the lowest percentage among 25 countries considered in the Global Drugs Survey report. In the survey, which was conducted among more than 100,000 people just before the Covid-19 pandemic, drinkers in Scotland and England reported to have rates of alcoholism more than double those in Portugal. British drinkers admitted to getting “seriously” drunk until their physical and mental faculties are affected, as well as “losing balance and rational speech”, an average of 33 times a year.
