Alcohol is the oldest known drug in human history, affecting consciousness, mood, cognitive, perceptual processes, or behavior. Although the perception of alcohol differently from culture to culture, the environment we live in and the impact of our family play an important role in alcohol dependence, alcohol addiction has become one of the most important problems of our age. The most important factor in alcohol dependence is alcohol use habits. Alcohol use can pose several risks. Risk is the probability of events that may adversely affect the return. In this study, we examined whether there is a significant relationship between alcohol use frequency, environmental-familial risk factors and gender differences among university students based on alcohol and risk variables. Personal Information Form, Michigan Alcoholism Screening Test and Cage Test were used. The data obtained with the measurement tool used were analyzed with statistical techniques suitable for sub-purposes. As the Michigan Alcoholism Screening Test score increased, the CAGE test score increased. It was observed that males scored higher than Alcoholism Screening Test and CAGE test. Alcoholism was found to be high and CAGE was found to be high in the loveless parents who were perceived. The purpose of alcohol use was found to be high in alcoholism as well as the uses for comfortable sleeping.
