Prospective associations between alcohol consumption and psychological well- being in midlife
BMC Public Health Feb 03, 2022
The prospective correlations between alcohol consumption and psychological well-being are examined in middle-aged men and women.
From the Copenhagen Aging and Midlife Biobank, researchers included 4,148 middle-aged individuals (80% men) for whom alcohol consumption (average weekly consumption and frequency of binge drinking) data were retrieved at baseline in 2004 or 2006 and psychological well-being (satisfaction with life and vitality) data were retrieved at follow-up in 2009–2011.
Analyses suggest a prospective association of alcohol abstinence with adverse psychological well-being (vitality and life satisfaction) in men and women, while there appeared a prospective association of heavy alcohol consumption with adverse satisfaction with life in men.
Finally, weekly binge drinking was noted to be prospectively linked with lower life satisfaction in men.
