Drinking alcohol does not appear to cause sleep problems, according to researchers at the University of Missouri in Columbia.The study also found people who use alcohol to sleep were more likely to be hazardous drinkers.

Other experts aren't convinced by the findings, saying the study was based on participants' self reports of alcohol use and sleep issues.

The study appears in this month's Annals of Family Medicine.
