While drinking is a lot of fun and mostly very delicious, I think it’s fair to say that us Brits probably push the envelope a bit when it comes to seeing how much drinking we can get away with without needing our stomachs pumped at the end of the night.

Sometimes that doesn’t even stop us.

The first time I got seriously drunk – to the point when I maybe should have been hospitalised – I was 13-years-old and was playing FIFA with my friends. Every time you conceded a goal, you had to have a shot of vodka. My friend was Athletic Bilbao, I was Malaga, and I lost 13-1. I was a very small boy and had a decent amount to drink before we started. Sick for days.

Apparently that’s not enough to put my humble Surrey hometown in the top 60 heaviest drinkers of the UK. Daily Feed put together said list using stats and these are the results. God knows what 13-year-olds are getting up to in these places.

Hey how about that, eh? Blackpool won gold. They’re still on the come down from being relegated from the Premier League back in 2011. They’re in League One now… can you blame the locals for drinking? I think not.

I’m surprised London didn’t find it’s way into the top ten in some capacity. Islington is part of London but still, you’d expect more from the capital.
