Apparently it's becoming 'mainstream' for millennials to not drink alcohol

We're not too sure about this.

Whether you choose to drink or not drink alcohol, it's a personal preference.


However, if we do choose not to drink, it often comes with questions. Why? For how long? Do you normally drink alcohol? Are you on antibiotics?

It's the society we live in and we've gotten pretty used to it.

But apparently more and more millennials are 'shunning' alcohol these days.

According to a new study, published in the journal BMC Public Health, more than a quarter of 16-24 year olds consider themselves as non-drinkers.

Lead author of the study, Dr Linda Ng Fat said:

"That the increase in non-drinking was found across many different groups suggests that non-drinking may becoming more mainstream among young people which could be caused by cultural factors."

"The increase in young people who choose not to drink alcohol suggests that this behaviour may be becoming more acceptable, whereas risky behaviours such as binge drinking may be becoming less normalised."

What do you think? Have we become less inclined to drink alcohol?
