Alcohol in Europe

Some nations have a culture of social drinking, others of binge drinking, others of general abstinence. Europe is home to the world's heaviest drinkers... In 2006 Europeans drank 79 billion liters of alcohol, that is 101.25 liters for every person. In the Asia Pacific region, it was just 22.1 litres per person in 2006. Nearly all the top 15 biggest drinking nations are in Central or Eastern Europe. Poverty and the harsh climate, particularly in Russia and post-Soviet states such as the Ukraine and Maldova, play a role in this high figure, as does the tradition of drinking in their culture and the production of bootleg alcohol.
