9, 2013 (HealthDay News) Teens who began puberty at an early age are more likely to experiment with cigarettes, alcohol and marijuana, researchers report. The study included nearly 6,500 boys and girls, aged 11 to 17, who were asked about their substance use in the past three months. According to a press release, it “reveals that teens for whom puberty begins early and who have rapid pubertal development are at greater risk for experimenting with cigarettes, alcohol and. Pubertal timing among girls has been shown to predict patterns of substance use, with early maturers reporting higher use of tobacco and alcohol in the early teens.
12,13 A common interpretation has been that early maturers are disadvantaged as a result of peer rejection and so experience low self-esteem. Early maturers had higher levels of substance use because they entered the risk period at an earlier point than did late maturers. The study findings support prevention strategies and policies that decrease recreational substance use within the peer social group in the early teens.
The odds of substance abuse were twofold higher (OR: 2.0; 95% CI: 1.2-3.2) in midpuberty and more than threefold higher (OR: 3.5; 95% CI: 2.2-5.4) in late puberty. Reporting most friends as substance users was more likely in the later stages of pubertal development, a relationship that accounted in part for the association found between later pubertal stage and substance abuse. At the zero-order, substance use is significantly related to higher odds of cohabiting (OR = 1.15; p < 0.01).
Each unit of substance use is associated with a 15% increase in the odds of cohabiting. However, the coefficient for substance use (OR = 0.97) is no longer significant with the inclusion of several controls, specifically gender and age. Early Drinking Linked to Higher Lifetime Alcoholism Risk. Data from a survey of 43,000 U.S. adults heighten concerns that early alcohol use, independent of other risk factors, may contribute to the risk of developing future alcohol problems.
Those who began drinking in their early teens were not only at greater risk of developing alcohol dependence at some point in their lives, they were also at. Some teens use drugs and alcohol to overcome insecurities, let their guard down and feel socially confident. Substance use may make them feel like they are really open and connecting with others.
In addition to more obvious risks, this can lead teens to feel like substance use is necessary to achieve a certain level of interaction.
