In a sample of 931 men, childhood religious affiliation (differentiating, accommodating, Catholic, and none) was found to impact alcohol use (quantity-frequency consumption, alcohol dependence, etc.). Individuals raised without religious affiliation exhibited the highest rates and those with differentiating religious backgrounds exhibited the lowest rates of alcohol use over the lifespan.
