Why is it that the Brits seem to be the only nation with a laddish drinking culture?

From what experience do you make that statement? Been to many foreign places (and I don't mean Brit infested holiday resorts) on a Friday or Saturday night?

France, Germany, Italy, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Belgium, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, Lithuania, Czech Republic to name a few. In all places I have been, I have seen people enjoying a drink but not in the same irresponsible manner as practiced by many Brits.
My post was triggered by an overheard conversation in Lewes this morning where a group of people (male and female) were bragging about how much they had drunk, who had thrown up, etc over Christmas. They were then planning their New Year's Eve intake and how they were going to get loaded at home on Vodka before hitting Brighton later in the evening.
It ain't healthy and there is more to life than getting drunk.

Everyone pre loads before going out these days, due to the price of drinks out, and everyone mixes their alcoholic drinks throughout their evening, leading to vomiting and deathly hangovers. I was taught not to mix the wheat with the grain, but of course youngsters these days wouldn't even know what I was even talking about. Life was so much simpler then. Blame the parents ?

I've seen people get drunk for the sake of getting drunk in many countries beyond these shores. Its not unique to the UK (binge drinking). The novelty of getting drunk wore thin for me a while ago, and I think many people struggle with it as they get older. When you are young though, it is just easier for our bodies to process the booze and get away with (as far as I can recall!). Also, people tend to get "judged" more for drunken behaviour as they transition from early adulthood to being joyless old adults!
I occasionally enjoy the taste, as well as the buzz of a drink or two, but it all goes downhill quickly from there so I just quit while I am "ahead". I can think of far more pleasurable substances that are safer for body and mind, and don't result in painful hangovers. "And that's a fact".
