Objectives: To test the relationship between alcohol intoxication and smoking behaviors in a field sample of 1139 young adults.

Methods: A self-administered survey and an objective measure of intoxication were used for data collection. We tested the relationship between smoking status and alcohol intoxication as well as the relationship between alcohol intoxication and smoking behaviors/intentions among occasional smokers.

Results: Occasional smokers were significantly more intoxicated than never smokers. Among occasional smokers, higher levels of intoxication were significantly associated with smoking behavior.

Conclusions: The importance of using field studies to investigate the co-occurring use of alcohol and cigarettes is discussed.
