Do you think you drink more than your grandparents do, or do you think that your grandparents are a bunch of lushes?
Would you believe that old people know how to hold their alcohol?
That’s the result of a RECENT SURVEY ABOUT DRINKING AT HOME that reached the following conclusions:
- 18% of those over 65 years old have at least one alcoholic drink at home every day
- 11% of those between 18-24 years old have at least one alcoholic drink at home every day
- 22% of those over 65 are less likely to cut back on their alcohol consumption if asked to do so.
- 19% of those over 65 may even lie about cutting back on drinking vs 29% of those aged 45-54 years old
In other words, old people drunk a lot, and they’re not ashamed to admit to doing so.
