    Not According to the World Health Organisation:
    "The latest figures from Statistics New Zealand don’t support our reputation as a country of heavy drinkers. While we see some disturbing images of the harm caused by alcohol, the statistics put these into context as a small number that do not represent the majority of people who have responsible attitudes to alcohol.

    In addition, the 2011 World Health Organisation’s Global Status Report on Alcohol and Health found consumption of alcohol in New Zealand continues to fall.

    In the World Health Organisation report New Zealand does not even make the top 50 countries when it comes to alcohol consumption per capita. Moldova tops the list with 18.22 litres of alcohol consumed per capita, followed by the Czech Republic and Hungary. New Zealand comes in at number 51 behind Australia which places 44th on the list.

    So why do we have councils going on a crusade to curb drinking, when as a culture its already declining? More about Is alcohol too popular in NZ today?
