Lifestyle factors were thought to be closely related to the incidence of chronic hepatitis B, because the habits of these hosts have the potential to develop chronic hepatitis B virus infection. The purpose of this study is to explain various lifestyle factors that are risk factors for the incidence of chronic hepatitis B. This study uses a case-control design and is supported by open questions. The study population was Dr. Wahidin Sudirohusodo Hospital Makassar obtained from medical record data and HBsAg examination results. The sample of this study amounted to 176 people consisting of 88 cases and 88 controls in consecutive sampling with matching sex and age. The habit of having free sex > 1 partner (p = 0.004; aOR = 3.3; 95% CI = 1.46-7.47) and alcohol consumption > 1 glass/consumption (p = 0.012; aOR = 2.4; 95 % CI = 1.21-4.97) is a risk factor for the incidence of chronic hepatitis B with a probability event jointly amounting to 62.73%.Lifestyle risk factors for chronic hepatitis B were free sex > 1 partner and alcohol consumption > 1 glass/consumption.
