As Australian’s attempt to lead healthier lives, they seem to be cutting down on the booze, particularly young people.

According to data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), Australians drank 186 million litres of pure alcohol in 2016-2017, the lowest since the 1960s.

People are drinking smarter, opting for low-alcohol and non-alcoholic beverages or drinking moderately.

Researchers at La Trobe University analysed data from 120,000 Australians from the national Drug Strategy Household Survey which revealed that one third of adults have reduced how often or how much alcohol they consumed in the last year.

There were also 29 per cent who said they reduced the frequency of their drinking and 6 per cent had given up alcohol altogether. Find out more at: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-01-19/demand-for-non-alcoholic-beverages-rise-australians-drink-less/10727172
