Now, it is no secret that Christmas is a time for indulging, with both calorie and alcohol intake going through the roof during December. While happy to play ignorant and go with the flow, a new research project has predicted just how much us Brits will drink this Christmas (thanks).

According to Boomerang, the creators of a natural detox drink, we will consume a whopping six billion units of alcohol this Christmas, with 2018 set to be a real boozy one!

To arrive at these numbers, researchers probed 2,311 18-year-olds, asking them about their relationship with alcohol on key dates such as Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.

Quizzing the public on their festive drinking habits, below were the reasons given for an increase in alcohol consumption:

  • 1. It’s Christmas – 89%
  • 2. Everyone else was drinking – 71%
  • 3. It’s nice to be able to drink without having to worry about work the next day – 56%
  • 4. There was more alcohol in the house than usual – 34%
  • 5. We had a constant flow of people in the house – 32%
