Culture plays a role in how we behave when we consume alcohol. Studies have shown that how an individual responds to alcohol depends on what they expect to experience. Alcohol expectancies refer to the outcomes that one expects to experience when one is drinking alcohol, for instance: loud, aggressive behaviour and fewer social inhibitions. Multiple studies have concluded that alcohol expectancies influence how individuals behave when they are intoxicated or think they are intoxicated.
