According to new VicHealth research which examined the state’s alcohol culture drinkers can be categorised according to their drinking habits.
The research attempted to put the states alcohol culture under the microscope to examine it in a non-judgemental way to determine why alcohol is such a central part of people’s lives.
The research is aimed at informing a new conversation about alcohol which moves beyond simply blaming individuals.
It is hoped that the project will help us to alter our attitudes towards harmful drinking and improve the health of people in the state.
The research was conducted by RMIT University with a grant from VicHealth Innovation Research.

It is also useful in showing just how much you drink over periods of time which may surprise you. For example while we may be aware of how much we drink in a day, when we examine our drinking over a week or a month we may be surprised.
