Abstract

Among college students participating in a 30-day study, those unwilling to volunteer to abstain for 10 days were the heaviest drinkers; those volunteering to abstain spent similar amounts of time before, during and after the period of abstinence at social functions where drinking occurred, and drank more after than before the period of abstinence.
