Summary The purpose of this study was to evaluate the predictive utility of the acquired preparedness and alcohol use in emerging adults. Data were collected from a sample of 273 participants, ages 18 to 25 years old, from an urban university in the Midwest. The participants completed self-report questionnaires via SurveyMonkey. It was predicted that expectancy variables would mediate the relations between impulsivity and the frequency and quantity of drinking. Results suggest that social pressure self-efficacy was found to fully mediate the relation between the impulsivity variables (lack of premeditation and positive urgency) for both drinking frequency and quantity. Increased confidence, increased sexual interest, and tension reduction were found to partially mediate the relations between lack of premeditation, sensation seeking, and positive urgency. These data suggest that specific expectancies were found to meditate the relations between impulsivity and frequency and quantity of drinking. Implications and future research are discussed.
