Danes know they drink too much, study says

Six out of 10 people polled by Voxmeter on behalf of the social aid organisation Blue Cross believe that there should be changes in Denmark’s alcohol culture. Respondents were asked if Danes needed to drink less, and 60 percent said yes, the Copenhagen Post reports.

Blue Cross head Christian Bjerre said that the poll reveals that the public wants to see changes in a culture where drunkenness is often the norm.

“In Denmark, one can almost get the feeling that you can only have fun with copious amounts of alcohol,” Bjerre told Jyllands-Posten. “They have a different approach in southern Europe where you drink alcohol in moderation and have a negative view of being drunk.”
