A. Sayette, Michael (2010) Does Drinking Reduce Stress ? Does Drinking Reduce Stress ? (389).Full text not available from this repository.
For centuries, people have used alcohol to relieve stressÂ—that is, the interpretation of an event as signaling harm, loss, or threat. The organism usually responds to stress with a variety of behavioral, biological, and cognitive changes. Alcohol consumption can result in a stressresponse dampening (SRD) effect, which can be assessed using various measures. Numerous individual differences and situational factors help determine the extent to which a person experiences SRD after consuming alcohol. Individual differences include a family history of alcoholism, personality traits, extent of self-consciousness, cognitive functioning, and gender. situational factors influencing alcoholÂ’s SRD effect include distractions during a stressful sit uation and the timing of drinking and stress. The attention-allocation model and the appraisal disruption model have been advanced to explain the influence of those situational factors.
