    Survey to perfection

    This cross-sectional survey was a very good starting point for further detailed study between alcohol uses and other clinical implications e.g. behavioral disorder, mood disorder or psychiatric disorder besides emotional effect in different countries and sociodemographic backgrounds.
    Overall the survey showed clear-cut connection between various positive and negative feelings with level of risk of alcohol use classified using AUDIT scores. However, selection bias existing in this study, either the under-coverage of the representative populations as the survey was only confined to people who had internet connection and also the small sample of people who did not attend high school. Response bias could probably be involved and must be also taken into consideration in setting up the survey. And individual co-morbidities must be included to further reduce the biases.
