  • Notes:
    The present study examines growth curve trajectories of cigarette and alcohol use from 13 to 19 years, and investigates how family relations (i.e., decision-making opportunities, negative family interactions, and positive identification with parents) relate to contemporaneous and predictive alcohol and cigarette use during adolescence, which had yet to be examined in a multi-level framework. Data came from a longitudinal study of European American and African American families from a range of socioeconomic backgrounds (n = 1160 for alcohol use; n = 1102 for cigarette use). Provides new knowledge about the role of families in the use of alcohol and cigarettes for young people, using a unique sample of middle class African American and European American adolescents using trustworthy and rigorous statistical techniques. The findings have significant implications for alcohol and cigarette use in adolescents, with implications for family and prevention programmes, especially in terms of gender and ethnic differences.
