“The role of college students' use of protective behavioral strategies in the relation between binge drinking and alcohol-related problems.” This is a study performed on 4,154 students at 13 mid-western universities. The purpose of the present study was to extend previous literature to examine the moderating effect of PBS (protective behavioral strategies) on the relationship between binge drinking and alcohol-related problems. Findings indicated that PBS moderated the binge drinking-alcohol problems relationship for each of the four measures of binge ...view middle of the document...

“Virtual Reality Cues for Binge Drinking in College Students.” This source investigated the ability of virtual reality (VR) cue exposure to trigger a desire for alcohol among binge-drinking students. Fifteen binge-drinking college students and eight students who were non-bingers were immersed into a neutral-cue environment or room (underwater scenes), followed by four alcohol-cue rooms (bar, party, kitchen, argument), followed by a repeat of the neutral room. The virtual rooms were computer generated via head-mounted visual displays with associated auditory and olfactory stimuli. In each room, participants reported their subjective cravings for alcohol, the amount of attention given to the sight and smell of alcohol, and how much they were thinking of drinking. I chose this source because it showed yet another factor that could cause binge drinking.

“Research article: Evaluation of an Internet-Based Alcohol Misuse Prevention Course for College Freshmen. Findings of a Randomized Multi-Campus Trial” This article compromised of a study on 30 universities, 21 entered the study in the Fall of 2007, nine in the Fall of 2008. Fifteen were randomly selected to take the online course and the other 15 were assigned to a control condition. The course was implemented by intervention schools during the late summer and/or fall semester. Cross-sectional surveys of freshmen were conducted at each university, beginning prior to the intervention in Spring 2008–2009; post-intervention surveys were administered in Fall 2008–2009 and Spring 2009–2010. I chose this article or study because it shows us a way to protect our future (college students) from the damages of heavy drinking by educating them.
