Abstract/Excerpt

The kind of drink ordered and the magnitude of sips taken in the course of a drinking session of alcoholic beverages in a bar-and-lounge environment were found to differ significantly between 15 social drinkers and 16 hospital admitted alcoholics with previous histories of hospitalization for alcoholism. The alcoholics as defined in this sample take on the average larger sips and more straight (non-mixed) liquor than do the social drinkers. An argument to train alcoholics to become social drinkers is offered.
