THE AMOUNT OF alcohol consumed in Ireland fell by 4.4 per cent in the last 12 months, while in the past 12 years, it declined by 20 per cent.

“The majority of people in this country consume alcohol in a moderate, responsible manner that is entirely compatible with a healthy lifestyle and in line with European norms,” said Kathryn D’Arcy, director of Alcohol Beverage Federation of Ireland.

Some people can no longer afford to drink alcohol, others could be looking after their health, while many have suggested that the reduction in consumption could be related to emigration rates.

So today we want to know what do you think. Have you reduced your alcohol consumption in the past year?
