Here’s How Much Alcohol Lahoris Consume In A Year

Growing up as a naive Pakistani that believed in the religious resolve of all of Pakistanis, the disillusionment was tough.


I had to go through all the steps of acceptance until I finally reached my final form. Now, I don’t get shocked when I hear anything.


It was recently brought to the attention of the media that according to reports, about 1 Billion rupees worth of alcohol was consumed only in Lahore, the past year.

Let’s understand how much 1 billion rupees exactly is


Here’s a useless calculation:

1 billion is basically 1000 million.

1 million = 10 lakh

so, 1 billion = 1000 gaddis of 10 lakh rupees.

Phew! SO glad the math is over. (I hate math!)

but wait, there’s more (ughh):

According to Google, Lahore has a population of about 8 million people.

So, if everyone in Lahore drinks, they spend about 125 rupees every year on alcohol!

I guess that adds another point in the entire Lahore vs Karachi debate


Lahore contributes way more per person per year to the alcohol sales than Karachi does. Or do they? Let’s wait until the estimated sales in Karachi is announced!
