Factors Related to Hazardous Drinking Among Male Vocational Students in Sisaket Province
Alcohol drinking among adolescents is still an important public health problem in Thai society. The purposes of this correlational research were to identify the prevalence of hazardous drinking and factors related to hazardous drinking among male vocational students. The study was conducted with 240 male vocational students in Sisaket province through the cluster random sampling procedure. Research instruments included the stress, alcohol drinking refusal self-efficacy, attitude towards alcohol drinking, family attachment and alcohol use disorder identification tests (AUDIT), The reliabilities were .78, .90, .79, .77 and .98 respectively. Data were analyzed by using descriptive statistics and binary logistic regression.
The results revealed that the prevalence of hazardous drinking was 49.5%. The significant factors related to hazardous drinking among male vocational students were illicit drug use (AOR = 5.76, 95% CI = 1.71-19.43), peer alcohol drinking (AOR = 3.54, 95% CI = 1.41-8.91), alcohol drinking refusal self-efficacy (AOR = 3.35, 95% CI = 1.79-6.28), stress (AOR = 1.95, 95% CI =1.02-3.75) and attitude towards alcohol drinking (AOR = 1.95, 95% CI = 1.04-3.68). Results of the study serve as basic information for people involved in developing effective interventions for hazardous drinking prevention among male vocational students. Those interventions should be focused on enhancing stress management and drinking refusal self-efficacy skills, including increasing appropriate attitude towards alcohol drinking.
