Cut price drinks promotions encourage binge drinking, according to a poll on thePublican.com.
An overwhelming 81 per cent of website users said promotions that charge a set price to drink as much as you like encourage binge drinking.
This shows that the majority of licensees do not agree with such promotions.
The news comes after licensing minister Kim Howells slated such practices and called on operators to stop "crazy promotions".
Meanwhile, a new crackdown on pub and club "happy hours" in Edinburgh bars is being planned by the city council.
The initiative would work differently from other schemes because it would force licensees to run happy hours for a minimum period of 24 hours - meaning that licensees would not be able to afford to run them.
It is designed to stop licensees selling drinks at 50p a pint and promoting two-for-the-price-of-one drink offers. The scheme will need the approval of the Scottish Executive before it goes ahead.
