Thorlindsson, Thorolfur; Vilhjalmsson, Runar
Adolescence, v26 n102 p399-418 Sum 1991
Examined predictors of cigarette smoking and alcohol use in nationwide sample of 1,200 Icelandic adolescents. Found that use of tobacco and alcohol was related to sex, residence, hours of paid work, physical activities, social network, educational performance and beliefs, and psychological distress. Concludes that existing theoretical perspectives do not provide adequate account of adolescent smoking and drinking. (Author/PVV)
