FARE 2019 Annual Alcohol Poll: Attitudes and Behaviours

May 10, 2019

Each year the Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education (FARE) hosts a survey where they interview Australians about their attitude and behaviours towards alcohol. The "2019 Annual Alcohol Poll: Attitudes and Behaviours" has just been released. The current report shows more Australians drinking to get drunk, as well as large numbers of people being unclear on the significant long-term health risks and harms associated with alcohol consumption.

Other findings include:

  • 9 in 10 Australian drinkers consider themselves “responsible drinkers”, despite the fact that half of Australian drinkers drink to get drunk;
  • Fewer than half of the people surveyed were aware of the link between alcohol use and stroke, breast cancer and mouth and throat cancer;
  • 38% of Australians have been affected by alcohol-related violence.

Read the full report and see Australians share their views on drinking in Australia.
