Sutherland, I.; Shepherd, J. P.
Journal of Adolescence, v25 n2 p169-81 Apr 2002
Explores the expectations of adolescents about their future cigarette, alcohol and illicit drug use. Results found that adolescents had unrealistic beliefs about future substance use. Very few non-users believed they would initiate illicit-drug use whilst current users believed they would continue to use. Many young people were uncertain about future substance use, a position that provides opportunity for drug-education programs. (Contains 13 references.) (GCP)
