This study explored the association between emotion-driven impulsivity and alcohol misuse, and investigated the role of trait mindfulness and drinking motives in this relationship. A diverse online sample of participants (n = 414) completed a battery of demographic and alcohol related items, as well as self-report measures indexing facets of impulsivity, motives to drink, and mindfulness.

 

This study highlights how unique motivational pathways of emotion-driven impulsivity are linked to alcohol misuse. Specifically, these findings identify drinking to cope and mindfulness as key mechanisms in the relationship between negative urgency and hazardous drinking.
