The purpose of this study was to investigate whether college students' use of the social networking site Facebook influenced their alcohol consumption. In particular, the relationship between students' alcohol use and exposure to alcohol-related content through various features or activities on Facebook was examined. An additional focus was to identify whether certain variables increased the chances of predicting students' alcohol and Facebook use. The study employed a non-experimental, quantitative, descriptive and correlational research design to examine the relationship between students' alcohol consumption, Facebook use, and exposure to alcohol-related content through various applications or features on Facebook. The sample consisted of 502 undergraduate students enrolled in the university at the time of data collection. Data were obtained through the use of a survey instrument designed by the researcher, for the primary purpose of soliciting self reported rates of alcohol consumption, Facebook use, and exposure to alcohol-related content on Facebook. The results of this study indicate that student alcohol consumption and Facebook usage are on par with current research. No statistically significant correlations were found between Facebook usage, various features or activities on Facebook, and students' consumption of alcohol.

The experiences of adolescents living with alcohol-abusing parents in Appelsbosch: explorative studyThusi, Kwanele Vincent January 2012 (has links)
Submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Masters of Arts (Counselling Psychology) in the Department of Psychology at the University of Zululand, South Africa, 2012. / Living with alcohol-abusing parents during the adolescence stage is often an emotional draining experience to some adolescents. This study was purposed at exploring the experiences that adolescents living with parents who abuse alcohol go through and the coping mechanisms that they employ to deal with such experiences. The convenient sample of six participants was selected from the Appelsbosch population and they participated voluntarily. The research findings indicated that the experiences of adolescents living with alcohol abusing in Appelsbosch are comprised by parent’s lack of proper parental supervision, lack of parent’s involvement in their school work, poverty, being sent out at night, witnessing parent’s conflicts, and assuming a role of a caregiver at an early age. Other family members, neighbors, friends, social groups as well as sport groups were found to be effective in helping adolescents cope with the parent’s alcohol abuse. / Medical Research council
The Relationship Between Electronic Nicotine Delivery System Use and Alcohol Consumption: A Neurocognitive and Behavioral InvestigationHershberger, Alexandra Raemin 08 1900 (has links)
Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) / Increasing research shows that the use of electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) is associated with higher rates and quantity of alcohol consumption; however, no research to date experimentally examines the relationship between ENDS use and alcohol use. The present study uses a two-session within-subjects design to examine 1) the relationship between ENDS use prime and attentional bias for alcohol related cues and 2) the relationship between ENDS use and laboratory ad libitum alcohol consumption. A total of N = 31 (mean age = 28.71, SD = 11.17; 45.2% women; 54.8% White/Caucasian) healthy users of ENDS who endorsed liking beer completed the present study, which included 1) a dot-probe and eye-tracking task that assessed attentional bias (reaction time, initial orientation, and delayed disengagement) to alcohol images following ENDS prime or no prime and 2) an ad libitum beer consumption task that assessed mL of beer consumed by the participants when concurrent use of ENDS was allowed or not allowed. All analyses controlled for age, race, and gender. Results of repeated measure ANCOVA’s indicate that attentional bias for alcohol does not differ between the ENDS prime or control conditions (F’s 0.01 to 0.12, ηp2’s 0.001 to 0.01). There is a large interactive effect of self-reported days of concurrent use of ENDS and alcohol over the last 14 days (ηp2’s 0.35 to 0.85), small to medium effects of alcohol craving preceding eye-tracking (ηp2’s 0.02 to 0.09), and small to medium effects of ENDS craving preceding eye-tracking (ηp2’s 0.06 to 0.13), all of which show increases in attentional bias following the ENDS prime; however, these results were limited by data quality issues that preclude strong support of these effects. Results of repeated measure ANCOVA’s demonstrate that amount of beer consumed does not differ by ENDS condition, F (4, 26) = 0.03, p = .86, ηp2 = 0.001. Results of a hierarchical linear regression show that amount of ENDS weight change (g) is not significantly related to mL of beer consumed in the ENDS session (b = -86.48, t = -0.90, p = 0.38, ∆R2 = 0.03). Results of linear mixed modeling testing the effect of ENDS puffs on alcohol sips temporally across the ad lib task show puffs are significantly related to sips (estimate = 0.23, SE = 0.07, p = .002) and number ENDS puffs account for some variability in slope of participant sips across participants. Results of repeated measure ANCOVA’s do not demonstrate significant interactions between mL of beer consumed by session and concurrent self-reported ENDS use over the past two weeks (ηp2 = 0.45), alcohol craving, or ENDS craving (ηp2’s = 0.002). Overall, results indicate that increased frequency of ENDS use is related to an increased frequency of beer consumption in real time. Since ENDS is related to alcohol use in time and place, individuals at risk for alcohol use problems should take care in their ENDS use. This study suggests that research should more fully measure and compare event-level and meta-level data on ENDS and alcohol use and that patterns based in the cigarette literature may not always generalize to ENDS.
