We continued our interest in drinking and regret in 2021, building on this topic covered in GDS2019 and GDS2020. We defined drunk as ‘having drunk so much that your physical and mental faculties are impaired to the point where your balance / speech was affected, you were unable to focus clearly on things and that your conversation and behaviours were very obviously different to people who know you’. On average respondents said they got drunk 14.6 times a year, so a bit more than once a month.
Australian respondents got drunk about twice a month, whereas those from Mexico reported 8.9 times in the last 12 months. Although there were only small numbers, in some countries trans, non-binary and intersex respondents reported that they got drunk on more occassions than their cis counterparts.
