  22. 26. Alcohol Expectancy Theory <ul><li>Children begin to acquire alcohol expectancies at a very young age (perhaps as young as 3 or 4 years old ). In early childhood, alcohol expectancies tend to be negative ( e.g., alcohol makes one sick, mean, and argumentative). </li></ul><ul><li>However, by fifth and sixth grade, these expectancies turn positive, focusing on the arousing and positive effects of alcohol use (e.g., alcohol makes one social, happy, and sexy). Thus, alcohol expectancies are largely positive by the time experimentation with alcohol begins. </li></ul>
