This longitudinal study investigated if the average number of drinks per day and beverage type predict DT.METHODS: A cohort of 3 582 alcohol dependent men and women aged 19-82 without previous DT were interviewed about alcohol intake and beverage type at baseline in 1994-2005 and followed through record linkage in Danish nationwide registers to identify incident DT. Data was analyzed by means of Cox regression models.RESULTS: An average number of drinks per day of 20-30 or > 30 was associated with hazard ratios (HRs) of 1.38 (95{\%} CI 1.03-1.84) and 1.64 (95{\%} CI 1.19-2.27) relative to the reference category (1-9 drinks). Independently of amount consumed and covariates (age, gender, civil status and work status), beverage type (spirits vs. mixed alcohol) was associated with a HR of 1.63 (95{\%} CI 1.08-2.46).
