Into the thirties: Persistence and social consequences of risky drinking (2015–2017)

In this proposal we aim to investigate the social contexts, roles and consequences of problematic alcohol use in adults aged 30, using long term longitudinal resources able to observe the development and corollary of alcohol use over time. We posit that drinkers entering their third decade of life persist in levels of problematic alcohol use typically associated with younger ages and that this leads to social consequences, such as gender specific risks, relationship conflicts and more severe sequelae. Outcomes from this study will inform the generation of relevant prevention and intervention strategies aimed to address problem drinking in adult Australians.
