BARROS-BERMUDEZ, Jaider Alfonso et al. Alcohol problem use associated with cigarette smoking in male population in Bucaramanga (Colombia). Salud, Barranquilla [online]. 2009, vol.25, n.1, pp.80-87. ISSN 0120-5552.

Objective: To estimate the prevalence and explore some correlates of alcohol problem use in a sample of men from the general population of Bucaramanga, Colombia. Materials and method: A cross-sectional study was designed. Demographic variables, daily cigarette smoking, daily coffee drinking, common mental disorders and alcohol problem use were investigated. Alcohol problem use was measured with the CAGE questionnaire (two or more affirmative answers). Logistic regression model was calculated to adjust associations. Results: A total of 756 men participated in this research. The mean age was 37.3 years (SD=14.4), and mean years of education 9.9 years (SD=4.2); 54.6% were married; and 76.8% were employed; 18.6% reported daily cigarette smoking; 45.9% daily coffee intake; 9.5% common mental disorders; and 10.0% (95%CI 7.9-12.1) scored for alcohol problem use. Daily cigarette smoking (OR=2.1, 95%CI 1.4-3.6) was associated with alcohol problem use, adjusted for common mental disorders. Conclusions: One each ten men in Colombia reports alcohol problem use. Only daily cigarette smoking is related to alcohol problem use. More studies are needed.
