article imageOne in four young people in Briton never drink alcohol

By Owen Weldon     Nov 3, 2014 in Lifestyle
According to a new report, one in four 16-30 year olds in England do not drink alcohol at all. They said they prefer to use the internet than go out drinking.
According to Mashable, the new poll for Channel 4 News revealed that young people cited social media, health and fitness concerns and religious beliefs as factors that influence their decision to not drink.
Those who were polled were asked what stops them from drinking, and 26 per cent of the under 30s said they didn't want to affect their judgement. 43 per cent said it was because of health and fitness concerns, while 40 per cent considered it embarrassing to get really drunk.
It was those over the age of 60 who seemed to be all for hitting the town. The age group tend to drink almost twice as often as those under 30.
The majority of those over 60 agreed that when someone their age got really drunk, it was embarrassing. The older generation were likely to drink every day, but this is down to drinking with an evening meal.
ComRes conducted the poll on behalf of Channel 4 News. The poll consisted of two age groups and 1,119 British people were interviewed. The poll was conducted to compare the number of days the two groups drank per week, as well as their attitudes towards alcohol and factors that prevented people from drinking.
