Parents Drink Less Than People Without Kids

A recent study in the journal “Drug and Alcohol Review” found that people who don’t have kids tend to drink more than people who DO have kids.

Parents are 25% less likely to be heavy drinkers than people without kids . . . because people who don’t have kids have more time and less responsibility.  The divide was bigger for women though.  Dads drink almost as much as guys who don’t have children.

The study also found that when people with kids DO drink, they’re much more likely to drink at home.  While people who don’t have kids are more likely to go to a bar.  And one more stat:  29% of parents said their kids have seen them drunk at least once.
