Record breaking alcohol consumption in Poland

Poles have never drunk so much alcohol, Polska daily warns.

According to the newest data, last year Poles spent on as much as 21.5 billion zlotys on alcoholic drinks, 15 percent more than in 2006. The newspaper points out that this means that the expenditure on alcohol in Poland is growing faster than salaries. The daily also stresses that Poles can afford more expensive alcohol now and that many treat drinking as the easiest way to fight stress.
