A Comparison of Alcoholics Memories of their First Drinks as Compared to Non-Alcoholics
This study examined the relationship between alcoholics' memories of their first drinks as compared to non-alcoholics' memories of their first drinks. The participants were 36 members of Alcoholics Anonymous and 12 non-alcoholic volunteers (39 male, 8 female, 1 did not indicate gender). Results did not indicate a significant relationship between whether or not the participant was an alcoholic and the vividness of their memories of their first drink. However, results did indicate that alcoholics remembered their drink as being slightly more pleasant than non-alcoholics.
