PEOPLE with hangovers may want to consider finishing their summer with sobriety as they attempt to read this.
FebFast involves taking a month of alcohol abstinence to raise money for various youth drug support services.
A FebFast survey of 1000 Australians last week found that women were four times more likely to throw down daily drinks while on holiday, while men were three times more likely.
The number of people who enjoyed more than 15 standard drinks a week tripled for both sexes.
Tasmanians do not deviate from the national average, with one-third admitting to more than 15 drinks a week over the holidays, compared to one in six over a normal week.
Police were able to nab 95 drink-drivers from 20,312 random breath tests from Christmas Eve to New Year’s Eve, despite the repeated warnings they would be aggressively targeting drivers under the influence, as they had each year before.
Although some may have imbibed more than they could hold over the Christmas period, no hospital recorded any complaints dealing with alcohol poisoning.
A Launceston General Hospital spokeswoman said that while the hospital had not dealt with alcohol poisoning complaints, it had received food poisoning complaints – though nothing out of the ordinary.
A North-West Regional Hospital spokeswoman said that the hospital’s director of emergency medicine had also not dealt with alcohol poisoning, although there had been the odd drunk person admitted to the department for other reasons.
