abstract
Self-evaluation of intoxication and impairment after alcohol consumption is a complicated process influenced by myriad variables. Such factors include personality characteristics, biphasic response to alcohol, and risk appraisal. The current experiments were designed to investigate the connection between trait anxiety and binge drinking, and ultimately the influence of anxiety on estimation of breath alcohol concentration (BrAC).
