Abstract

This study estimates the strength of association between frequent episodes of alcohol intoxication and recent smoking of methamphetamine ('ice'). Drawn from the 1993 National Household Survey on Drug Abuse, a total of 101 ice smokers were matched on neighborhood of residence to 816 non-smokers. Based upon conditional logistic regression analyses, persons with daily episodes of alcohol intoxication were an estimated five times more likely to have smoked ice, as compared with non-drinkers or drinkers with little or no history of alcohol intoxication. This estimate includes statistical adjustment for potential confounders (e.g. age, sex) and was statistically significant (P=0.01). The association between frequent alcohol intoxication and 'ice smoking' offers an intriguing lead for a broad range of new research. Copyright (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Ireland Ltd.
