Extending Drinking Years

People tend to cut back on their alcohol consumption as they age, but in the US, at least, they don't seem to cut back as much as they used to. At least that is one conclusion from a new study in the American Journal of Public Health. This story provides more detail, including some information suggesting that alcohol and tobacco are complements: "Starting smoking was linked with a 21% increase in drinking; quitting meant a 12% cutback in drinking."
