Abstract: The aim of this study was to evaluate the importance of alcohol dependent patients’ emotional expressivity, alcohol-related expectations and socio-demographic factors for prediction of motivation to refuse alcohol consumption. Materials and methods The study sample consisted of 136 alcohol-dependent patients (100 men and 36 women) undergoing treatment in Kaunas center for addictive disorders. Results Only higher expression of negative alcohol-related expectations (std. beta = 0.192, P = 0.023), higher emotional impulse intensity (std. beta = 0.229, P = 0.021) and higher expression of positive emotional expressiveness (std. beta = 0.021, P = 0.020) as well as gender (std. beta = 0.180, P = 0.049), education (std. beta = –0.137, P = 0.038) and alcohol dependency treatment conditions (members of support group after rehabilitation program) (std. beta = 0.288, P = 0.001; std. beta = 0.608, P = 0.001) were significant factors for predicting the different level of alcohol-dependent patients motivation to refuse alcohol consumption. Conclusions Negative alcohol-related expectations, emotional impulse intensity and positive emotional expressiveness were significant even though quite weak triggers for alcohol-dependent patients’ different level of motivation to refuse alcohol consumption. An assumption could be made that by changing these triggers it is possible to change addictive behavior
