Kiwis are prolific pre-loaders, study finds, even though we're not heavy drinkers

Kiwis are prolific pre-loaders, study finds, even though we're not heavy drinkers
- An international study reckons young adult Kiwi drinkers are near the top of the table for pre-loading with alcoholic drinks before going out, even though we're not much inclined to be heavy drinkers. The pre-loading data comes from 65,126 people from 25 countries who took part in the annual, anonymous, online Global Drug Survey for 2015. Overall, 62.6 per cent of those in the study were pre-loaders. In New Zealand the figure was 78.7 per cent, behind leading pre-loader Ireland on 85.4 per cent, and also trailing Canada and Norway. Lowest pre-loader among the 25 countries in the study was Greece, with 17.7 per cent.
