The Kingdom of eSwatini has been ranked third in the world in terms of the amount of alcohol consumed per drinker per day on average.

  This ranking comes from Wisevoter, a data analytics firm that tracks the consumption of alcoholic beverages globally. Alcoholic beverages have been a part of human society for thousands of years, and their impact on human health and well-being is a subject of ongoing debate.

While some people enjoy alcohol as a social lubricant and a way to unwind after a long day, others view it as a dangerous and addictive drug that can have serious negative effects on their health. The high rate of alcohol consumption in the Kingdom has raised concerns about the impact on public health and the well-being of the country's population.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), alcohol consumption is a leading risk factor for a range of health problems, including liver disease, heart disease, and certain types of cancer. Heavy consumption of alcohol can lead to a range of serious side effects, including decreased motor skills function, liver failure, and an increased risk of cancer and death.

Alcoholism, a condition in which a person is unable to control their drinking and experiences significant negative consequences as a result, is also a major concern. The WHO also notes that alcohol consumption is associated with an increased risk of violence and injury, particularly among men. In the country, the high rate of alcohol consumption has contributed to a rise in incidents of drunk driving and other forms of violence.

Governments around the world have taken a range of measures to regulate the consumption of alcoholic beverages and to reduce the negative impact on public health. These measures include raising taxes on alcohol, implementing stricter licensing requirements, and promoting education and awareness about the dangers of alcohol consumption.

Despite these efforts, however, the high rate of alcohol consumption in Eswatini remains a concern. Countries facing economic depravity, high unemployment rates and general low happiness index tend to default to superstition, religion or high alcohol consumption as a way of escaping their reality.
