Objective: To determine relationship between physical-sport practice and alcohol consumption, based on sociodemographic variables and family influences. Material and methods: 1,008 Mexican adults were interviewed by a random routes questionnaire. Multinomial logistic regression was used to calculate odds ratio (OR) and confidence interval (CI = 95%). Results: High risk alcohol use is 12.7%, with a higher percentage in men that in women. Eighteen to forty-five years-old is the age range with high probability of alcohol use. High levels of education were relationship with high frequency of alcohol consumption and low amount of consumption. There is not a clear relationship between physical exercise practice and alcohol use. Participants who do collective sports and/or recreational modalities had a high alcohol use. The family context is a risk factor of alcohol consumption. Brothers and father are were the most influential people. About tobacco use, it was found that people who smoke have a high probability of drink alcohol. Conclusions: Sex, age, education level, family context and physical exercise practice determine differences in the quantity and/or frequency of alcohol consumption. The results of this study are useful because it was found that physical-sport practice and socio-affective environment have a relation with acquisition and regulation of health behaviors or harmful.
