Title

Alcoholism subspecies and their relationship to cigarette and caffeine consumption

Abstract

The relationships between types of alcoholism and cigarette and caffeine consumption were studies using the classification system of Reactive and Essential Alcoholism. The subjects were 155 Alcoholics Anonymous members. Information was collected on a number of population demographics including gender, religious preference, length of sobriety, educational level, and ethnic group membership. A correlational design was used and the data collection technique was a self-administered questionnaire. Hypotheses under study were: (1) Essential Alcoholics are more likely to be high frequency cigarette smokers than Reactive Alcoholics; (2) Essential Alcoholics are more likely to be high frequency caffeine consumers than Reactive Alcoholics. No significant correlations were found when the research hypotheses were examined.
