January 6, 2022## Young, drunk, dead: How the silly season kills!

December 13, 2021In 2020, **according to the annual, independent Global Drug Survey**, Australians were drunk more often than any other country in the survey. Melissa Cunningham reported in The Age (**How to cure a hangover!**, 11 DEC 2021) that Australians admitted being drunk 27 times a year, compared with the global average of 15.

Naturally, a lot of this drinking takes place during the Christmas holidays or the Silly Season. Unfortunately, it appears to be the SILLY SEASON all year round in Australia.

Data from 32,022 people from 22 countries were used in the preparation of this Global Drug Survey
