Adolescence can be regarded as a period of transition characterized by developmental tasks and intrapsychic such as interpersonal modifications. These changes are influenced by historical and socio-cultural variables. These several identity changes may represent specific risk and vulnerability factors during adolescence. Adolescents could use a lot of chemical and behavioral regulators (Di Blasi M., 2003) in order to manage development processes, such as alcohol consumption. Our results suggest a relationship between alcohol use, alcohol effect expectancies and social identity. This finding is in line with literature that highlight that expectancies and believes influence drinking behaviors among adolescents.
