Abstract [en]

Consuming alcohol may lead to negative consequences, such as aggression, violence or drunkdriving. However, not all adolescents who consume alcohol engage in negative behaviors.The purpose of this study was to examine the role of gender and impulsivity as risk factors forengagement in negative conducts after alcohol intoxication. The sample of this studycomprised 1,002 Swedish adolescent students between 12 and 16 years of age (52% boys). Students filled in self-report questionnaire at two time points (T1 and T2), once a year. Aftercontrolling for previous levels of negative consequences of alcohol consumption, as well asfor drinking habits at T1, the result showed that impulsivity had an impact on adolescent’salcohol-related consequences after intoxication. Also, boys showed a higher tendency toreport negative consequences after alcohol intoxication compared to girls. All in all, thislongitudinal study shed new light on the personality aspects that make adolescents more likelyto engage in negative conducts after alcohol consumption.
