Do romantic partners influence each other's heavy episodic drinking?
A Dalhousie research team’s 3-year study of 179 romantic couples suggests that if one partner binge drinks, their behaviour contributes to binge drinking in their romantic partner. By determining binge drinking habits of one partner in the romantic relationship, researchers have shown that you can predict the binge drinking habits of the other.
The study, which was conducted by Clinical Psychology PhD Student, Sara Bartel and supervised by Dr. Sherry Stewart and Dr. Simon Sherry, was recently published in the peer-reviewed scientific journal Addictive Behaviors and can be found at:
