In his recent article,(1) Caine provides a timely critique of suicide research and prevention efforts and thoughtfully proposes new directions within a public health framework. Several potential proximal and distal causes are noted and analyzed. The author persuasively notes the need for attention to both high-risk individuals and population level factors, drawing on the seminal work by Rose(2) on the prevention paradox. Caine refers to alcohol use, chronic drinking, and alcohol dependence, and we wish to highlight an additional factor relevant to both perspectives-acute use of alcohol at the time of suicide.
