Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

BACKGROUND Alcohol and nicotine dependence frequently co-occur, and quitting smoking might enhance long-term alcohol abstinence.

Nicotine increased the sedative-like effects of alcohol in both sexes.

Nicotine and alcohol are often consumed concurrently by smokers.
Nicotine and alcohol generally produced additive subjective and cardiovascular effects when consumed together, although nicotine attenuated sedating and intoxicating effects of alcohol alone.
Nicotine plus alcohol tended to attenuate some subjective effects due to one drug or the other alone in men but enhanced the effects of either alone in women.

In spite of the high prevalence of the combined use of alcohol and nicotine , only a few laboratory studies have examined the effects of this drug combination in humans.
Nicotine and alcohol are often consumed together and smokers are more likely than non-smokers to drink alcohol.
Drug and alcohol dependence  •  2004  |  View Paper
Ethanol potentiated some of the subjective rewarding effects of nicotine , including smoking satisfaction, stimulant as well as calming effects, and relief of craving for cigarettes.
The main objectives were to determine how the rewarding effects of nicotine might be modified by ethanol , and to compare the effects of ethanol with those of a nicotinic antagonist (mecamylamine).
These results highlight the potent interaction between ethanol and nicotinic systems, and suggest that ethanol can potentiate the rewarding effects of nicotine as well as offset some of the effects of a nicotinic antagonist.
