People who drink alcohol regularly tend to exercise more than those who don't. Researchers found that people who are heavier drinkers also were more likely to exercise than light drinkers and to exercise for a longer period of time.

It's believed some drinkers may use exercise to burn the calories from the alcohol; others may drink and exercise for the thrill.
