Abstract

This study examined the mechanisms influencing alcohol consumption in young adults by focusing on the interrelations among sensation seeking, parents' drinking, and peers' drinking. College students (109 males and 89 females) completed a self-administered questionnaire. The results of structural equation modeling revealed that 1) the effect of sensation seeking on drinking was mediated by peer influence, 2) the three variables were significantly related to drinking, and 3) sensation seeking had the strongest influence on drinking.
