This 2013 National Drug Strategy Household Survey report shows that: - fewer Australians are smoking daily and are smoking less cigarettes; - fewer people are exceeding the lifetime risk and single occasion risk guidelines for alcohol use; - overall illicit drug use has remained stable but some drugs have declined and some have increased; - alcohol continues to be the drug of most concern to the community but an increasing number of people are concerned about meth/amphetamines.
