Drinking On The Rise In U.S., Especially For Women, Minorities, Older Adults

By:  Camila Domonoske


More Americans are drinking alcohol, and a growing number of them are drinking to a point that's dangerous or harmful, according to a new study published in JAMA Psychiatry this week.

The study, sponsored by a federal agency for alcohol research, examined how drinking patterns changed between 2002 and 2013, based on in-person surveys of tens of thousands of U.S. adults.

They found that drinking, in general, rose substantially over that time frame. Problem drinking increased by an even greater percentage, and women, racial minorities, older adults and the poor saw particularly large spikes.

The findings suggest "a public health crisis," the researchers say, given the fact that high-risk drinking is linked to a number of diseases and psychiatric problems, as well as violence, crime and crashes.  "These findings portend increases in many chronic comorbidities in which alcohol use has a substantial role," the researchers write.

What to Drink When You're Not Typically a Drinker

Emily Price


When you drink semi-frequently, you typically come up with a cocktail, spirit, or style of beer you like, and gravitate toward it when you’re out. When you don’t drink often, drink menus can be hard to navigate, and what all your friends enjoy might be a bit different than what works for you. For instance, things like double IPAs and smoky scotches can be great for seasoned drinkers, but revolting to less-frequent ones.

I’m of the opinion that everyone should try everything at least once to determine what they like and dislike. However, as the group booze-lover, I often get the question from friends that don’t drink as often “What should I order?” The question came up this week on a bigger level, when a friend in his mid-30s who has never had any alcohol asked where he should get started.

Obviously, everyone’s taste is different, and what Tim likes out of the gate might taste awful to Bob and Sally (which is why you should try everything), but if you’re not much of a drinker and are looking for something to order when you’re out with friends or at a wedding (or to get started in general), here are some good places to start:

I imagine the search would have dire consequences.
