A new study from the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism’s found that America’s drinking habits are on a bit of an uptick. To get to the bottom of the figures, they first had to determine what a “healthy” amount of drinking would add up to. That number? 2.1-gallons each year…or 448-drinks annually.
So who drinks the most? In all, there are 41 states that were considered over that “healthy” mark, and 29 of those were 10% higher or more…and truly going pro with the stuff.
Here are the top ten states ranked by alcohol consumption per capita:
- New Hampshire (4.76-gallons per capita)
- Delaware (3.72-gallons)
- Nevada (3.46-gallons)
- North Dakota (3.26-gallons)
- Montana (3.11-gallons)
- Vermont (3.08-gallons)
- Wisconsin (2.98-gallons)
- Alaska (2.94-gallons)
- Idaho (2.92-gallons)
- South Dakota (2.87-gallons)
If your state isn’t on this list, then you’ve got your work cut out for you.
