Residents in Jersey are among the heaviest drinkers in Europe.
Figures released today show islanders' average alcohol consumption remains among the highest in Europe and developed countries.
Despite this, there's been a huge reduction in drinking in the past 10-years.
New evidence shows one in four islanders who drink alcohol do so at dangerous levels likely to affect their health.
There is definitely no room for complacency. We are still flashing red on some of the indicators, and hazardous levels of alcohol consumption continue to take their toll on adult Islanders’ health. However, there are certainly some signs of an improving picture. Jersey’s young people report mostly healthier lifestyles and are showing positive improvements in behaviours such as smoking and drinking, so there is hope for a healthier future.
A report has been released showing the amount of crimes that have been committed in the island where the offender has been drinking.
A recovering alcoholic talks to ITV News about his experience. He says the drinking culture in Jersey made him think he was normal.
