ATLANTA -- A new study from the CDC shows some bad news for drinkers in Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico.

According to the study, almost 10-percent of deaths in working age adults in the US are from alcohol related problems.

New Mexico is at the bottom of the list with more than 16-percent of deaths being alcohol related.

Texas and Oklahoma are sitting at 9.8 and 10-percent respectively.

The study also says that the average American loses just more than 11-years of their potential life due to alcohol.

New Mexico came in last on that statistic also with an average of 18.5-years lost.

Texas and Oklahoma are both close to the national average.
