We present you with the top drinking countries highest alcoholism rates in the world. Insider Monkey has come up with an edifying compilation regarding to this topic. There are numerous factors leading to alcoholism, those being stress, emotional instability, bad habits, and depression just to name some. Many of these factors can be related with jobs, there often having too much stress, and a lot of other problems. The Czech Republic and Germany must be somewhere at the top, since they are one of the most famous beer countries in the world, right? Yes, Czechs beat all others by beer consumption with around 142 liters per year per capita. But Germany (with 104.7 liters per capita) here stands only at the fourth place, having Seychelles and Austria ahead, with 114 and 104.8 liters per capita respectively.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of top drinking countries highest alcoholism rates in the world from their list.
The first one is Portugal. Although alcoholism rates in Portugal have dropped a lot since 15 years ago (having reached the record of 14.21 liters of alcohol per capita in 2003, to 13.11 in 2006, to 12.25 in 2010 and so on…) it remains one of the top drinking countries with the highest alcoholism rates in the world. And, of course, you have guessed, Portuguese drink the most wine (55%), followed by beer and spirits. Unfortunately my home country is on the list, too. We drink too much alcohol year by year and alcohol consumption is continually decreasing. So the next country on our list should be Hungary. Alcoholism rate in Hungary compared to the rest of the European Union is as much as three times more. The percentage of the most consumed drinks is almost equal for the top three (around 30% each): beer, wine, and spirits. The last country should be Ukraine. And here we go, yet another Eastern European representative of the top drinking countries with the highest alcoholism rates in the world. Stereotype or not? Well, according to data, Ukraine does have a huge amount of heavy drinkers, but there are also some other opinions.
