Aloise-Young, Patricia A.; Hennigan, Karen M.; Leong, Cynthia W.
Journal of Early Adolescence, v21 n2 p158-81 May 2001
Examined relation of possible selves to smoking and drinking for 1,606 sixth through ninth graders. Found that smoking and drinking were related negatively to number of positive expected selves and balance between expected selves and feared selves. When both possible-selves were entered in model simultaneously, only the number of positive expected selves consistently was related to negative health behavior. (Author/KB)
