Pagination or Media Count:
An Alcohol Experiences Questionnaire was administered to 2,045 Navy recruits to determine usage patterns, attitudes, and incidence of self-reported drinking problems for the period before their entry into the Navy. Comparisons were made between this incoming sample and naval personnel, particularly enlisted men, reporting drinking practices on a separate Navywide survey. Implications of the findings for alcohol abuse prevention and education are discussed, and research into the peer influence process is recommended.
