Canada now ranks as the third country in the world for drunkenness, according to a new study.

The annual Global Drug Survey, led by Dr. Adam Winstock, surveyed almost 2,000 Canadians, who were asked to reveal their drug and alcohol habits.

According to the study, Canadians were drunk an average of 47 days a year, ranking in third following behind the US with 50 tipsy days, and the UK with 51 drinking days a year.

The study also found that nearly half of Canadians surveyed reported wanting to drink less alcohol the following year, with nearly one in five saying they felt regret regarding their drinking habits, and two in 10 saying they’re considering professional help.

Additionally, the study found Canada is now the country with the second highest cocaine use in the world.

According to the study, Canada had the second-highest median number of days with 10, compared to the global answer of six days a year.

The study also found that Canadians use half a gram of cocaine, which matches the average worldwide. This could be because the price of cocaine is more affordable in Canada, costing an average of $85 per gram compared to the global average of $120.

The study also found that six of 10 Canadians surveyed who use cocaine actually want to do less.
