Abstract

Negative alcohol expectancy (NAE) reliably discriminates between social drinkers who are satisfied with their current consumption and those who are not (even when the variable, consumption, is controlled). Positive alcohol expectancy does not. A role for NAE as representing motivation for change in social drinkers is suggested.
