Corbin and his colleagues examined associations between early subjective response and acquired tolerance and both drinking behaviour and alcohol-related problems, within a sample of 113 heavy drinking young adults (75 men, 38 women) who had volunteered for a clinical trial of naltrexone in combination with brief motivational counselling.
Consistent with the one prior study on this topic, we found that both initial SR and tolerance were related to drinking behaviour, with heavier drinking among those with a low initial SR and greater acquired tolerance," Corbin said.
An understanding of how acquired tolerances operate, were we to embrace one, would free Western society from the hysterical, indeed infantile pattern of indulging ourselves and judging others.
