Reduce your risk of alcohol-related injury: stay drunk
Reckless amateurs a danger to themselves
Weekend drinkers are more likely to injure themselves when hammered than full-time pro boozehounds, Swiss researchers have found.
Admissions to the emergency department at Laussanne University Hospital over an 18-month period from pool cue related mishaps and the like were much more frequent amongst less committed schnapps bingers. The pattern was the same for both men and women.
A further finding of the study, published in the journal Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research, and to be filed under Bleedin' Obvious, was that people who never drank were many times less likely to wind up in casualty.®
