Americans drink more in the winter, a study has revealed.

From December to March, most enjoy a generous tipple at least five days a week.

Typically the season starts on the first Friday of advent.

It ends with a heavy two-day marathon on St Patrick's Day weekend.

Revealed: Americans drink more between December and March according to a new breathalyzer app

The results emerged in a study by BACtrack breathlyzer - an app that lets people monitor their blood alcohol content levels.

Analyzing the anonymous data from all its users, the firm compiled a graph showing when most people had a blood alcohol content level of more than 0.06 per cent - the scientific definition of slurring-your-words drunk.

Let the drinks flow at Christmas: More than five days a week are spent drinking in winter, the study showed


This year, Valentine's Day fell on a Wednesday - but that didn't hold back the hordes of people treating themselves to a hump day beverage.

Other days of intense drinking in the past 12 months fell on December 6 and 7 - with an average BAC of 0.088 per cent - and New Year's Eve, with a 0.094 per cent BAC average.

January 18 and 19, January 25, and March 7 and 8 when the other days that saw the heaviest drinking.

The rest of the year, Americans rarely drank as much, and never as often - only pouring a tipple a maximum of three days a week.

Now I maybe just a little different as those are the times that I tend to back off drinking adult beverages. I kind of figure that there are enough intoxicated individuals on those given days that someone has to stay keen and alert if for no other reason than to protect myself and my family. I do my best to stay off of the road during these peak drink times.
