A study from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism has released their report on the drunkest states in America. Each year they have ranked the states for alcohol consumption, and you might be surprised by how some states were ranked!

Raise your glass for the drunkest state, New Hampshire! According to the report, "People in New Hampshire drink twice the national average of 2.33 gallons a year." The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism based their study on "apparent" per capita consumption. That means they combined numbers based on sales figures represent ages 14 and up.

They continue to go into detail by explaining how they acquired the data, "Since the NIAAA is most concerned with how much actual alcohol we’re consuming, they distill the data to gallons of pure ethanol. Healthy People 2020, a government organization that sets wellness goals for our populace, has declared the “national objective” of no more than 2.1 gallons per person, per year.”

We have to step up our game Texas! We need to show 'Merica that we know how to party! Check out what states are drunker than us. Do you agree?
