"The Brown University Digest of Addiction Theory and Application." Stress-related Alcohol Use Leads to Problem Drinking 18.7 (99). - Wiley Online Library. Web. 21 Apr. 2012. <>.

This article is written by a group of authors from the Brown University Digest of Addiction Theory and Application.  The authors who are unlisted draw a correlation between increase drinking after graduating college and the use of drinking as a coping mechanism while in college.  Through their research they discovered that there was indeed a correlation between students who used drinking as a means to cope and the increased use of drinking and problems related to drinking after they had graduated.  In ebscohost the authors are unlisted so i assume it is from a large group of people operating under Brown University.  Basically the entire article pertains to my thesis paper but what struct a chord with me was the conclusion at the end of the paper which sums my paper up in a matter of sentences "As college students make the transition to post-college life, social motivations for drinking tend to drop away and a reduction in alcohol consumption occurs.However, those who drank to cope with stress are more likely than those who drank socially to continue to drink heavily and to experience negative consequences of alcohol consumption."
