The relationship between alcohol consumption and violence is complex. Individual factors, cultural influences, attitudes, and expectancies around drinking and outcomes play significant and interacting roles. While an association between certain patterns of drinking and certain types of violence has been described, the vast majority of drinking episodes does not lead to violence, and most violence does not involve drinking. No causal link has been established between alcohol consumption and violence.
