Association between tobacco and alcohol use among young adult bar patrons: A cross-sectional study in three cities
Young adult bar patrons reveal a high smoking rate and a strong relationship between smoking and drinking, regardless of the bar culture or tobacco control policies, report tobacco control researchers, Nan Jiang, PhD, Youn Ok Lee, PhD and Pamela M. Ling, MD, MPH, in BioMed Central Public Health from May, 2014. These co-authors examined cigarette smoking and alcohol use among a random sample of bar patrons in Tulsa, OK, Portland, ME and San Diego, CA. In fact, their research displayed the link to be so strong and consistent between smoking and drinking that it indicated that public health efforts and clinical tobacco cessation programs should make it a priority to address the paired use of alcohol and tobacco, particularly in light of continued tobacco product marketing in these venues.
