Hmmh, actually there seems to be a fair bit of variation among the charts. Most of the charts I checked had only European countries in the top 10, but e.g. Wikipedia lists some oddballs there, like Uganda topping the chart, but with the following footnote:

"Several African countries (Burundi, Nigeria, Swaziland and Uganda) appear in the list in the top 30 positions of adult per capita consumption. This is because the calculations were based on FAO data which included fermented beverages and estimates of beer produced locally from sorghum, millet and other agricultural products."

In any case if you look at the alcohol consumption map at Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Alcoh ... ld_map.PNG) the picture seems pretty clear: Europe rules at least when it comes to drinking! ;)

Well drinking is just fine. Make sure it's moderately done.

Im from Australia, apparently we outdo all of you in drinking habits.

Around where I am, people scull, get drunk on cheap stuff then throw it up so they can begin on the expensive stuff, its sort of like preparation, although my friend ended up in an ambulance on 2 liters of red goon (cheap wine).

wouldn't it make more sense to first drink the good stuff, and then when you're already a bit out of it drink the cheap stuff, you can't tell the difference anyway

That's what I usually do. According to the Gospels, even Jesus did that.
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.
