What is the average amount a Briton will spend on alcohol in their lifetime?

Macmillan Cancer Support have released a couple of interesting statistics ahead of their Stay Sober for October campaign.  The average Briton spends almost £50,000 in their lifetime on alcohol; that is around £787 per year.

The research surveyed 2,000 over-18s. Men spent an average of £934.44 per year, the data found, compared with women spending £678.60.

Macmillan is calling for a month of abstention in October to raise awareness of the health benefits and financial savings. Hannah Redmond for Macmillan Cancer Support, said: “By abstaining for the month of October and being sponsored to do so, you’ll save money, reap the health benefits and raise vital funds to support people affected by cancer.”
