This chapter summarizes our conclusions and offers some ideas for fruitful new lines of research. Among the ideas proposed are (1) examining generational or cohort differences in alcohol consumption over time (i.e., as individuals age); (2) the effect of different retirement trajectories (e.g., a traditional, full retirement trajectory vs. a trajectory characterized by bridge retirement) on shifting patterns of substance misuse; (3) exploring the link between aging, substance misuse, and mental illness; and (4) the role of substance misuse on retirement planning (or the lack thereof). The chapter concludes with a discussion of the implications and generalizability of our findings in the context of broader theories of person—environment fit.

Keywords:   cohort differences, person—environment fit, retirement planning, retirement trajectories, generalizability, mental illness
