A massive proportion of youngsters are saying no to alcohol completely.
Researchers said that quitting alcohol was becoming “more mainstream” among people in England aged 16 to 24 after the study showed a rise in non-drinkers.
The new research from a study of 10,000 people says that more than a quarter of youngsters consider themselves as “non drinkers”.
The proportion of 16 to 24-year-olds who do not drink alcohol has increased from 18% in 2005 to 29% in 2015.
Drinking patterns in smokers, ethnic minorities and those with poor mental health did not change.
