It depends on the line of work they are in. Vodka was a social problem many years ago but Poles have learned to temper it and enjoy it at the right time.

It was a communist disease.

Communists are now guilty for many things, but for alcoholism they are surely not.

maybe type of drink, vodka?

Yeltsin was the last communist honoring vodka.Just kidding.
Anyway who knows what red army would have achieved against the meth drugged German soldiers if Russians were not under the influence of vodka they consumed before and during each battle.I mean the vodka made them fearless and ruthless to an unknown degree.(with happy consequences for the Frauleins later).

(with happy consequences for the Frauleins later).

I heard those stories from old people from Vojvodina.
In the trucks to nowhere.

Anyway Russians are quite fearless without vodka I think, although I didn't meet many who were not drunk or drugged. I spent one month with Russians who were mostly young artists, so I probably had inadequate sample. I felt like I'm in Bulgakov's novel. Super interesting nightmare.

It seems that they developed some tolerance to those substances because most of them even when heavily intoxicated had capacities to think quite clear.
One guy told me that his professor in directing school asked him will he ever have an opportunity to meet him at least half conscious. He finished 2 faculties with psychoactive substances in his blood.

I ran away, I couldn't manage that pressure to intoxicate myself.
But it was the time of my life anyway. Great experience.

Amazing people.

Not hardly. She's a local character of Polish and Belorussian extraction. She can frequently be found in a certain bar on the near north side of Chicago.

My (current) girlfriend is first generation Sicilian. She says I make her toes curl.

They do everything better when they drink - drive, fight, teach etc.

nahhhh!!!!

Jesus! That fool drank that whole bottle of vodka! I hope he didn't p.iss near a campfire later that night. My old Polish grand pop was champion drunk but he never pulled a stunt like that.

I'm sure it's true, but nationality doesn’t determine whether you'll be an alcoholic or not.

But it does when it comes to drinking all day long at the "Kiosk", lol

Whoever is videotaping these things is complicit. It's like taping a suicide. The guy with the camera taping the men drinking a whole bottle is the low-life.

Alcoholic problem of Polish people?? Well, at least Poles like to share their problems, something for which we should all be grateful given their kind, hospitable nature in homes across the country :)

Merged:

Alcohol consumption in different countries



In Russia alcohol consumption grew from 1.7 liters a year per capita in 1950 to 26 liters in 2010. Then according to some data it may fell to 10 liters in 2016. An active promotion and advertisement of alcohol consumption on TV and media is blamed. What about Poland and other countries?

There is alcohol and there is drunk like a skunk alcohol. Big difference. Maybe not to the liver but most certainly to others.
Aside from living shorter, drunks are basically of two types: happy and belligerent. The former are a PITA but tolerable. The latter will make you a victim and a frequent 911 caller. They should be dumped after the first incident and certainly before the first pregnancy.

Liberals and drug addicts should be sterilized.

The biggest consumption of alcohol I've ever witnessed at one setting, hands down are Polish weddings.

More drunks than the bleachers at Wrigley field! Lol

Volume itself may be less of a problem. It's the rate that makes turns them into idiots. One ounce per hour and you never get drunk.
