Alcoholics' perceptions of cues to intoxication.

Author information

  • 1Department of Psychology, Brigham Young University-Hawaii, Laie 96762, USA.


This study examined whether alcoholic participants perceive cues to self-judgment of intoxication along the internal-external dichotomy used in the research literature on blood alcohol level discrimination. Twenty-eight participants diagnosed as alcohol dependent participated. Participants rated the perceived similarity of pairs of 18 cues to intoxication. Cluster analysis indicated that participants' ratings formed four clusters: disinhibition, relaxation, impairment, and external cues. These clusters provide some support for the internal-external dichotomy used in previous research.
