Alcohol is a major cause of death of accidents and other diseases. It was found that the working age group had a higher rate of alcohol drinking than the other groups. This descriptive survey research aimed to examine factors affecting the intention to alcohol withdrawal among the department store employees in Nan province. The theory of planned behavior (TPB) was applied as the study’s conceptual framework. The sample consisted of 289 employees those were selected by using stratified random sampling and were randomly recruited according to inclusion criteria. Data were collected in May 2018, by using the structured questionnaires. Data were analyzed by using descriptive statistics, and inferential statistics; Chi square test and multiple logistic regression. The results revealed that most of the employees were male with mean of ages at 30.47±5.91 years. Chi-square test revealed that factors affecting the intention to alcohol withdrawal were female, attitudes, subjective norms and perceived behavioral control (p-value < 0.05). Multiple logistic regression analysis showed that the attitudes, subjective norms, and perceived behavioral control together predicted 74 % of the intention to alcohol withdrawal. These results suggest that administrator of the department store should design a program to increase attitudes, subjective norms and perceived behavior to the department store employees in order to get a success of stop drinking alcohol.
