“Addictive behaviors, such as smoking, drinking and overeating are highly prevalent among young adults in the U.S. Losing self-control in stressful or highly arousing contexts plays an important role in perpetuating these behaviors. This project will examine if increasing self-control via practice and training will reduce these maladaptive behaviors in college students. The findings will extend basic knowledge about self-control processes to identify effective ways to change addictive behaviors in the real-world setting of college life.”
