Developmental Aspects of Drinking through the Young Adult Years

  • Robert A. Zucker

Abstract

The consumption of alcoholic beverages at any point in the life span of the individual may be viewed from a variety of perspectives. It may be seen as an attribute of personality, in which case the investigator’s primary concern is the stability and predictability of drinking behavior as a function of intraindividual factors. These may be traits, attitudes, motives, or habits whose presence (or absence) or relative degree of strength leads to a greater likelihood that drinking behavior will occur (cf. McClelland, Davis, Kalin, & Wanner, 1972; Williams, 1976). Such a perspective usually implies the presence of some stability of the behavior both across situations and over periods of time.
