Irish women regret getting drunk almost half the time they do it.
By contrast, the same figure for men was just 35 per cent.
That's according to the findings of the 2021 Global Drugs Survey.
The survey polled two thousand Irish people on their drinking habits.
Adam Winstock is the founder of the survey.
He says there can often be a pressure in Ireland for women to match men’s drinking.
He says women should not feel that they "have to be one of the lads".
"Women get caught in social settings where they try to match men drink for drink."
"We know that women are more vulnerable to the harmful effects of alcohol."
Mr Winstock says by drinking a little less more slowly women "are not going to get as drunk and hopefully not going to regret it."
Meanwhile, Eunan McKinny, the head of advocacy at Alcohol Action Ireland, says people need to become more familiar with low risk alcohol guidelines.
He says seventeen standard drinks for men and 11 for women are standard.
Mr McKinny says there should be "at least 2 or three days in the week" whereby you're not drinking alcohol at all.
People interested in reducing their drinking have been urged to download Drinksmeter, a mobile app which monitors alcohol consumption.
