Measuring Global Alcohol Health Literacy: A Narrative Review
CONCLUSIONS: The current state of the research literature makes it impossible to identify patterns of alcohol health literacy globally or even to compare intra-country studies across time. We recommend that a database of standard, validated questions for assessing knowledge about the relationship between alcohol and several key health outcomes be assembled and made available to the research community.PMID:34100699 (Source: Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs)

Predicting Substance Use at a Youth Mass Gathering Event: The Role of Norms and the Importance of Their Source
CONCLUSIONS: People's substance use at mass gatherings is particularly influenced by perceptions of friends' substance use. Friend norm perceptions change over time and dynamically influence young people's anticipated substance use in these high-risk settings. Interventions to reduce substance use at mass gatherings may be enhanced by correcting misperceptions of the normative behaviors of friends.PMID:34100700 (Source: Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs)

Prospective Relationships Between Objectively Assessed Social Media Use, Drinking Norms, and Alcohol Consumption Among First-Year Students
CONCLUSIONS: Greater time on social media during the transition to college, and on Snapchat in particular, predicted increases in perceptions of peer drinking norms and, in turn, greater alcohol consumption among men only. These findings carry precise implications for interventions seeking to reduce alcohol-related risks among first-year men and underscore the need for additional research examining developmental factors and social media user experiences that may explain the sex-specific patterns of relationships observed.PMID:34100702 (Source: Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs)

Using an Optimized Marijuana Purchase Task to Examine Cannabis Demand in Relation to Cannabis Misuse in Heavy Drinking Emerging Adults
CONCLUSIONS: The optimized MPT generated a two-factor latent structure that was parallel across samples, and the Amplitude factor was consistently associated with cannabis misuse. The current findings indicate the robust relevance of behavioral economic demand for cannabis in relation to cannabis misuse but suggest that links to motivation may be sample-specific.PMID:34100703 (Source: Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs)

Drinking Intensity at Age 29/30 as a Predictor of Alcohol Use Disorder Symptoms at Age 35 in a National Sample
J Stud Alcohol Drugs. 2021 May;82(3):362-367.ABSTRACTOBJECTIVE: The purpose of this longitudinal study was to identify associations of drinking intensity at age 29/30 with symptoms of alcohol use disorder (AUD) at age 35.METHOD: Analyses used national longitudinal data from 1,253 individuals (53.5% female) participating in the Monitoring the Future study. Age 29/30 data were collected from 2005 to 2013; age 35 data were collected from 2010 to 2018. Multivariable models regressed age 35 past-5-year AUD symptoms (vs. nondisordered drinking/abstinence) on age 29/30 past-2-week drinking intensity (no/low [0-4] drinking, binge ...

Company-Specific Revenues From Underage Drinking
CONCLUSIONS: Despite the alcoholic beverage industry's stated commitment to reducing underage drinking, significant revenues appear to accrue from this activity. This presents an opportunity to enact and enforce policies--such as alcohol taxes or required company funding of independently managed youth drinking prevention initiatives--that recover these revenues from the industry and use them to help achieve the goal of preventing youth alcohol consumption.PMID:34100705 (Source: Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs)

Taking Steps Toward Coherent Global Governance of Alcohol: The Challenge and Opportunity of Managing Conflict of Interest
This article illustrates the legitimating and enabling significance to the FCTC of measures including emergent internal practices within the WHO, the World Bank's decision to withdraw funding from tobacco projects, steps by host governments to restrict support for the overseas expansion of tobacco transnationals, and changes in civil society and researcher engagement with industry actors. Recent developments in seeking to manage conflicts of interest in nutrition policy in the WHO and at national levels highlight the scope for progress in the absence of an international legal instrument.

Patients With Alcohol Use Disorders and Their Concerned Others: Concordance of Lived Experience as a Moderator of Treatment Outcomes
CONCLUSIONS: Concordance and discordance on this lived experience could be considered in treatment planning for patients with AUD and their concerned others. Providers could ask about each member's childhood and aim interventions at helping dyads discuss their childhoods in ways that validate each other's needs and provide emotional support, without stigmatization.

J Stud Alcohol Drugs. 2021 May;82(3):414-421.ABSTRACTOBJECTIVE: Pain-related anxiety is a psychologically based construct that is associated with tobacco dependence and may have important relevance to e-cigarette use. Difficulties with emotion regulation, a relevant construct in motives for cigarette smoking, may interact with pain-related anxiety to yield worsened clinical outcomes among e-cigarette users.

Acute Tolerance to the Analgesic Effects of Alcohol
CONCLUSIONS: This study provides initial experimental evidence that alcohol's analgesic and pain-relieving effects are subject to acute tolerance following acute alcohol intake. These findings suggest that self-medicating pain via alcohol intake may be associated with high-risk drinking topography, increasing the risk for alcohol-related consequences. Further research is needed to determine if these effects extend to the context of clinical and chronic pain.PMID:34100711 (Source: Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs)

Mediational Pathways From Genetic Risk to Alcohol Use Disorder in Swedish Men and Women
CONCLUSIONS: Our models concurred in showing that the strongest mediational pathway for genetic risk to AUD includes externalizing symptoms and disorders, which in turn predict further key downstream risk factors. Pathways through lower EA and IPP had smaller effects. IPP had mixed effects (partly predisposing and partly protective) on downstream risk factors. The largest sex difference was a stronger externalizing pathway to genetic risk to AUD in males than in females.PMID:34100712 (Source: Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs)

Prospective Relationships Between Objectively Assessed Social Media Use, Drinking Norms, and Alcohol Consumption Among First-Year Students
CONCLUSIONS: Greater time on social media during the transition to college, and on Snapchat in particular, predicted increases in perceptions of peer drinking norms and, in turn, greater alcohol consumption among men only. These findings carry precise implications for interventions seeking to reduce alcohol-related risks among first-year men and underscore the need for additional research examining developmental factors and social media user experiences that may explain the sex-specific patterns of relationships observed.PMID:34100702 (Source: Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs)

Using an Optimized Marijuana Purchase Task to Examine Cannabis Demand in Relation to Cannabis Misuse in Heavy Drinking Emerging Adults
CONCLUSIONS: The optimized MPT generated a two-factor latent structure that was parallel across samples, and the Amplitude factor was consistently associated with cannabis misuse. The current findings indicate the robust relevance of behavioral economic demand for cannabis in relation to cannabis misuse but suggest that links to motivation may be sample-specific.PMID:34100703 (Source: Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs)
