It has been found that self-esteem is related to alcohol consumption, with the majority of research finding that low self-esteem is associated with high levels of alcohol use and high self-esteem is associated with low levels of alcohol use. The present study examined this relationship among 100 university students aged 18-25 years. Further, gender was compared with two age groups including late adolescence aged 18-21 years and students in early adulthood aged 22-25 years. It was found that men scored higher on self-esteem than women, however, there was no significant difference between the genders ' attitudes towards alcohol use scores. These findings are discussed in relation to intervention programs.
