  • How maladaptive cognitions contribute to the development of problematic
           social media use

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 21 February 2020Source: Addictive Behaviors ReportsAuthor(s): Giulia Fioravanti, Gordon Flett, Paul Hewitt, Laura Rugai, Silvia CasaleAbstractIntroductionThe current study investigates the effects of perfectionism discrepancies (PD) and social hopelessness (SH) on problematic social media use as conceptualized by the cognitive-behavioral model. Methods: A sample of 400 university students (52.3% women; mean age = 22.01 ± 1.99) completed measures assessing PD, SH, and problematic social media use. Results: Structural equation modeling showed that both social hopelessness and feeling discrepant from personal and prescribed standards predicted the preference for online social interactions (POSI). POSI predicted the motivation to use online social media as a means of alleviating distressing feelings, the inability to regulate social media use and the negative outcomes resulting from use of SNS. Conclusions: In line with the cognitive-behavioral model of problematic Internet use, the present study suggests the primary importance of maladaptive cognitions about the self (i.e. perfectionism discrepancies) and the world (i.e. social hopelessness) for the development of a preference for online social interactions. In particular, the present study shows that individuals are likely to opt for online social interactions as a function of their pessimistic social expectancies and the sense of inadequacy that comes from perceptions of falling short of expectations.
       
  • The relationship between narcissism, intensity of Facebook use, Facebook

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 21 February 2020Source: Addictive Behaviors ReportsAuthor(s): Julia Brailovskaia, Hans-Werner Bierhoff, Elke Rohmann, Friederike Raeder, Jürgen MargrafAbstractIntroductionThe present study investigated mechanisms that may contribute to the enhanced risk of narcissistic individuals to develop Facebook addiction.MethodsIn a sample of 449 Facebook users (age: M(SD) = 31.07(9.52), range: 18–65) the personality trait narcissism, Facebook flow, intensity of Facebook use, and Facebook addiction were assessed by an online survey.ResultsIn a moderated mediation analysis, the positive relationship between narcissism and Facebook addiction was positively mediated by the level of flow experienced on Facebook. Intensity of Facebook use moderated the positive association between Facebook flow and Facebook addiction.ConclusionsExcessive Facebook use may cause psychological dependence. Narcissistic individuals are at enhanced risk for this form of dependence that is fostered by experience of flow during Facebook use and intensity of Facebook use. Current results should be taken into account, when assessing individuals at risk for pathological Facebook use and when planning specific interventions to deal with it.
       
  • Personality associations with Facebook Use and Tendencies towards Facebook
           Use Disorder

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 19 February 2020Source: Addictive Behaviors ReportsAuthor(s): Cornelia Sindermann, Éilish Duke, Christian MontagAbstractIntroductionThe present study sought to address core issues in the association between personality and the putative disordered use of Facebook. First, to redress the issue of generalisation from samples solely recruited from Facebook, we sought to explore personality differences between users and non-users of Facebook. Second, we aimed to investigate associations between personality and Facebook Use Disorder. The present study contributes a novel perspective to extant research on this topic by moving beyond the broad Big Five of personality, to explore possible relationships between Facebook use and sub-facets of the Big Five; all analyses were additionally controlled for confounding effects of demographic variables.Methods3,835 (n=2,366 males) participants completed socio-demographic variables, the Big Five Inventory and stated their user status on Facebook (i.e. user versus non-user). Facebook-users also completed a Facebook Use Disorder scale assessing addictive tendencies towards Facebook use.ResultsFacebook users reported higher levels of extraversion and lower levels of conscientiousness compared to non-users. Tendencies towards Facebook Use Disorder correlated negatively with conscientiousness and positively with neuroticism in both males and females. Conclusions: The present results indicate that research samples drawn from Facebook users may be biased with regard to personality (extraversion, conscientiousness). Moreover, certain personality traits – conscientiousness and neuroticism – which may increase a tendency towards Facebook Use Disorder are discussed.
       
  • A Brief Review of Choice Bundling: A Strategy to Reduce Delay Discounting
           and Bolster Self-Control

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 5 February 2020Source: Addictive Behaviors ReportsAuthor(s): Melinda L. Ashe, Stephen J. WilsonAbstractChoice bundling is a behavioral economic strategy designed to reduce excessive delay discounting and bolster self-control. Choice bundling entails aggregating a series of individual, identical intertemporal decisions (e.g., should I smoke today') into a single choice (e.g., should I smoke this month'). In this brief review, we succinctly summarize delay discounting and how it has been linked to lapses in self-control, using substance use as an exemplar. Next, we describe how choice bundling may theoretically work to counter excess discounting rates. Finally, we review the extant empirical research on choice bundling and offer recommendations for future research.
       
  • Parenting styles and metacognitions as predictors of Cannabis use

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 4 February 2020Source: Addictive Behaviors ReportsAuthor(s): Thomas Brosnan, Daniel C. Kolubinski, Marcantonio M. SpadaAbstractMetacognitions, the beliefs held about internal mental processes and the strategies aimed at controlling such processes, are known to play a significant role in the development and maintenance of addictive behaviours. Specifically, lack of cognitive confidence and beliefs about the need to control thoughts have been implicated across addictive behaviours. No research to date, though, has explored the role of metacognitions in cannabis use. Research has also shown that an authoritarian parenting style (where a parent uncompromisingly enforces their own ideas regardless of the will of the child) may be correlated with addictive behaviours. However very limited research has investigated the role of parenting styles in cannabis use. In the current study we aimed to investigate the relative contribution of parenting styles and metacognitions to cannabis use. A sample of 85 participants completed a series of online questionnaires, measuring negative affect, parenting styles, metacognitions and cannabis use. Spearman correlations indicated that cannabis use was positively correlated with each of the metacognitions and both permissive and authoritarian parenting styles. Regression analyses demonstrated that a combination of the physically coercive aspects of the authoritarian parental style and lack of cognitive confidence predicted cannabis use when controlling for negative affect. The implications of the current findings are discussed.
       
  • Gaming Addiction and Perceived Stress among Saudi Adolescents

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 4 February 2020Source: Addictive Behaviors ReportsAuthor(s): Ahmad Mamoun Rajab, Mohamed Saddik Zaghloul, Saed Enabi, Tawfik Mamoun Rajab, Abdullah Murhaf Al-Khani, Abdulrahman Basalah, Sara Wafik Alchalati, Joud Enabi, Saadi Aljundi, Syed Baqui Billah, Juliann Saquib, AbdulRahman AlMazrou, Nazmus SaquibAbstractIntroductionAdolescents (age: 10 -19 years) make up 15% of the Saudi population and have easy access to electronic gadgets and the Internet, yet data on gaming addiction among adolescents are negligible. We aimed to determine the prevalence of gaming addiction and its association with stress among Saudi school students.MethodsIn this cross-sectional survey, 2675 school students (grades 7-12) from 40 randomly selected schools in four main cities of Al-Qassim province in Saudi Arabia participated. The questionnaire inquired about demography, lifestyle, gaming addiction (7-item Game Addiction Scale), and stress (10-item Perceived Stress Scale). Multinomial logistic regression assessed the association between gaming addiction (yes, no) and stress (high, moderate, low).ResultsParticipants’ mean age was 16.1 (SD = 1.6) years; 50% were female; 64% reported>3 hours of daily screen time; 5% were addicted to gaming; 11.4% had high-level stress. Addiction to gaming was strongly associated with stress in the adjusted analysis (moderate OR=6.7, 95% CI = 2.9 -15.5; high OR=11.9, 95% CI = 4.7 -30.1). Additionally, those who were older, female, had poor grades, unhealthy dietary habits, an inactive lifestyle, and smoked were more likely to experience high stress.ConclusionsGaming addiction is strongly associated with stress among Saudi adolescents.
       
  • Problematic Facebook Use and Anxiety Concerning Use of Social Media in
           Mothers and Their Offspring: An Actor–Partner Interdependence Model

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 29 January 2020Source: Addictive Behaviors ReportsAuthor(s): Stefano Ruggieri, Gianluca Santoro, Ugo Pace, Alessia Passanisi, Adriano SchimmentiAbstractPrevious research has shown significant and positive associations between social anxiety of parents and their adolescent offspring. The main aim of this study was to investigate this relationship in the social media (SM) context. We tested one hundred and fifty-two couples comprising mothers and their adolescent offspring (12–14 years old) on their levels of problematic Facebook use (PFU) and social anxiety concerning SM use. An actor–partner interdependence model highlighted the positive relationship between the PFU scores of mothers and their offspring on the levels of SM social anxiety in the offspring. We discuss the results in the context of intergenerational transfer of problematic technology use and social anxiety.
       
  • Narcissism and problematic social media use: A systematic literature
           review

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 28 January 2020Source: Addictive Behaviors ReportsAuthor(s): Silvia Casale, Vanessa BanchiAbstractIntroductionThe relationship between narcissism and social media use has been a topic of research since the advent of the first social media website. While numerous meta-analyses have been conducted to synthesize empirical evidence on the association between narcissism and typical online behaviors (e.g., uploading photos and usage frequency), evidence on the association between narcissism and Problematic Social Media Use (PSMU) has not yet been systematized. The current study represents the first systematic review on this topic.MethodsElectronic literature databases, including the Web of Science, MEDLINE, PsychINFO, and EMBASE, were searched to identify studies that examined the relationship between narcissism and PSMU. We found 14 empirical studies on narcissism and PSMU. Additionally, seven studies focused on the association with Problematic Facebook Use (PFU).ResultsConsistent results were reported regarding the positive and significant association between grandiose narcissism and PFU (0.13< r
       
  • Passive objective measures in the assessment of problematic smartphone
           use: A systematic review

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 27 January 2020Source: Addictive Behaviors ReportsAuthor(s): Francesca C. Ryding, Daria J. KussAbstractResearch focussing on problematic smartphone use has predominantly employed psychometric tests which cannot capture the automatic processes and behaviours associated with problematic use. The present review aimed to identify passive objective measures that have been used or developed to assess problematic smartphone use. A systematic search was conducted using Web of Science, Scopus, PsychInfo and PubMed databases to identify passive objective measures that have been employed to assess problematic smartphone use, resulting in 18 studies meeting the inclusion criteria. Objective data that were monitored predominantly focussed on general screen usage time and checking patterns. Findings demonstrate that passive monitoring can enable smartphone usage patterns to be inferred within a relatively short timeframe and provide ecologically valid data on smartphone behaviour. Challenges and recommendations of employing passive objective measures in smartphone-based research are discussed.
       
  • The association between meaning in life and harmful drinking is mediated
           by individual differences in self-control and alcohol value

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 27 January 2020Source: Addictive Behaviors ReportsAuthor(s): Amber Copeland, Andrew Jones, Matt FieldAbstractIntroductionThe adoption of adult roles that provide meaning in life is associated with reduced harmful drinking. The current study examined whether this relationship is mediated by increased self-control and reduced value of alcohol.MethodsCross-sectional design. 1,043 adults (786 females) ≥18 years old completed an online survey. The outcome variable was scores on the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT), predictor variables were presence of and search for meaning in life (Meaning in Life Questionnaire), and mediating variables were trait self-control (Brief Self-Control Scale) and the value of alcohol (Brief Assessment of Alcohol Demand).ResultsPresence of meaning in life had a significant negative association (B = -.01, SE = .00, 95% CI -.02 to -.00, p=.015), whilst search for meaning in life had a significant positive association (B = .01, SE = .00, 95% CI .01 to .02, p=.001) with AUDIT scores. The negative association was mediated by increased self-control (B = -.09, SE = .01, 95% CI -.12 to -.06) and decreased value of alcohol (B = -.02, SE = .01, 95% CI -.04 to .00), whilst the positive association was mediated by decreased self-control (B = .05, SE = .01, 95% CI .03 to .07) and increased value of alcohol (B = .02, SE = .01, 95% CI .00 to .04), thereby supporting our hypotheses.ConclusionsThe relationships between presence and search for meaning in life and harmful drinking are mediated by individual differences in both trait self-control and the value of alcohol.
       
  • Assessing Comprehension and Perceptions of Modified-Risk Information for
           Snus Among Adult Current Cigarette Smokers, Former Tobacco Users, and
           Never Tobacco Users

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 24 January 2020Source: Addictive Behaviors ReportsAuthor(s): Janine L. Pillitteri, Saul Shiffman, Mark A. Sembower, Michael R. Polster, Geoffrey M. CurtinAbstractIntroductionSnus, a low nitrosamine smokeless tobacco product, presents less risks to health than cigarettes. Effectively communicating such risk information could facilitate smokers switching completely to snus, thereby benefiting public health.MethodsThis study assessed comprehension and perceptions of modified-risk information regarding snus. Adult cigarette smokers, former tobacco users, and never tobacco users (N=3,922) from a US internet panel viewed an advertisement stating that smokers who switched completely to snus could greatly reduce risk of lung cancer, respiratory disease, heart disease, and oral cancer. Respondents answered questions regarding the modified-risk information and rated perceived risks of snus relative to cigarettes and other smokeless tobacco products.ResultsAcross the four diseases mentioned in the advertisement, most respondents (49.7%-68.6%, across tobacco user groups) understood that snus presents less risk than cigarettes but is not completely safe. Some indicated snus presents the same risk as cigarettes; this was highest for oral cancer (33.7%-42.02%) and lowest for lung cancer (15.4%-23.1%) and respiratory disease (15.6%-23.4%). Majorities understood snus is addictive (77.7%-87.9%), quitting all tobacco is the best option for smokers (83.6%-93.1%), and non-users of tobacco should not use snus (80.4%-87.8%). Only 2.1%-5.8% indicated smokers would receive a health benefit if they continued to smoke while using snus.ConclusionsThe modified-risk information, conveying that snus presents less risk than cigarettes but is not completely safe, was understood by majorities of respondents. Differential risk beliefs across diseases suggest responses were shaped not only by the modified-risk information, but also by intuitions and pre-existing beliefs about tobacco products.
       
  • Social norms and e-motions in problematic social media use among
           adolescents

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 21 January 2020Source: Addictive Behaviors ReportsAuthor(s): Claudia Marino, Gianluca Gini, Federica Angelini, Alessio Vieno, Marcantonio M. SpadaAbstractIntroductionBeing constantly connected on social media is a “way of being” among adolescents. However, social media use can become “problematic” for some users and only a few studies have explored the concurrent contribution of social context and emotion regulation to problematic social media use. The current study aimed to test: (i) the influence of friends (i.e., their social media use and group norms about social media use); and (ii) the effects of difficulties in emotion regulation and so-called “e-motions” on adolescents’ problematic social media use.MethodsA cross-sectional study was conducted in Italian secondary schools. An online questionnaire was administered to 761 adolescents (44.5% females; Mage = 15.49 years; SDage = 1.03).ResultsPath analysis showed that social norms were directly associated with problematic social media use and friends’ social media use was associated with the frequency of social media use, which, in turn, was associated with problematic use. Difficulties in emotion regulation were directly and indirectly linked to problematic social media use via frequency of use and facilitating use of e-motions.ConclusionsThese findings provide support for the importance of both peer influence and emotion regulation in this context. Social norms and emotion regulation should be considered in prevention programs addressing problematic social media use in adolescents.
       
  • Sensitivity and specificity of a commercial urinary ethyl glucuronide
           (ETG) test in heavy drinkers

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 17 January 2020Source: Addictive Behaviors ReportsAuthor(s): Erica N. Grodin, Xuan-Thanh Nguyen, Diana Ho, Spencer Bujarski, Lara A. RayAbstractIntroductionTo advance the use of alcohol metabolites as biomarkers in the context of alcohol research, the present study tested the sensitivity and specificity of a commercially available urinary ethyl glucuronide (uEtG) test (DrugConfirm Advanced 80hr EtG) in a clinical research context.MethodsA community sample of heavy drinkers (N=68) completed the 30-day Timeline Follow-Back (TLFB) interview and provided a urine sample for uEtG analysis. Analyses of sensitivity and specificity of the uEtG assay were conducted using the following outcomes: (a) past day drinking, (b) past day binge drinking (defined as ≥4 drinks for women and ≥5 drinks for men), (c) past 3-day drinking, and (d) past 3-day binge drinkingResultsThe majority of participants reported past-3-day drinking (80.9%) and a sizeable minority reported past day drinking (33.8%). While uEtG-based detection of past day drinking and binge drinking was acceptable (sensitivity = 73.91%, and 83.33%; specificity = 80.00% and 66.13%, respectively), detection of any drinking and binge drinking in the past 3 days was poor (sensitivity and specificity of 43.64% and 84.62%, and 39.39% and 62.86%, respectively).ConclusionsThis study contributes to the mixed findings on the validity of EtG tests, which suggest that commercial uEtG tests with conservative detection thresholds are not a reliable alcohol biomarker without corroborating self-report data. Lower detection thresholds are recommended when using uEtG as an alcohol biomarker. Efforts to reach acceptable levels of sensitivity and specificity with commercial assays hold potential to advance the measurement of alcohol intake, overcoming the pitfalls of self-report data.
       
  • Once online poker, always online poker' Poker modality trajectories
           over two years

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 17 January 2020Source: Addictive Behaviors ReportsAuthor(s): Magali Dufour, Adèle Morvannou, Émélie Laverdière, Natacha Brunelle, Sylvia Kairouz, Marc-Antoine Nolin, Louise Nadeau, Frédéric Dussault, Djamal BerbicheAbstractOnline poker is considered more at-risk than land-based poker in terms of intense gambling behaviors and gambling problems. The development of many online gambling sites has raised public health concerns about the potential increase in online poker players. Longitudinal studies are useful to better understand the evolution of gambling behaviors; however, very few consider online poker players. Using a prospective design, this study aims to identify online and land-based trajectories over a two-year period and the factors influencing those trajectories.Results are based on data collected at three time-points over the course of a prospective cohort study conducted in Quebec (n=304). A latent class growth analysis was performed to determine trajectories based on the main poker modality played, either online or land-based poker. Multinomial multivariable logistic regression analyses were conducted to determine the correlates of poker playing trajectories.Over two years, three poker playing trajectories were identified, comprising two stable trajectories [stable land-based (51.5%) and stable online (36.3%)] and an unstable trajectory [unstable online land-based (12.1%)]. The second trajectory included online poker players at baseline who transitioned to land-based poker. Number of gambling activities increased the odds of being in the first trajectory as compared to the others. Severity of gambling problems was a significant predictor of the second “unstable” or the third “stable online” trajectories, but not for the first “stable land-based” poker trajectory.The majority of poker players remained in either the land-based or online trajectories over two years. No poker players transitioned from land-based to online poker.
       
  • Trauma in childhood and adolescence and impaired executive functions are
           associated with uncertain reflective functioning in mothers with substance
           use disorder

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 30 December 2019Source: Addictive Behaviors ReportsAuthor(s): Vidar Roald Kristiansen, Tore Bergby Handeland, Bjørn Lau, Kerstin Søderstrøm, Ulrika Håkansson, Merete Glenne ØieAbstractAimsImpairments in reflective functioning are known to have adverse effects on the ability to display sensitive parenting as a caregiver. Several factors are associated with impairments in reflective functioning, such as impaired executive functioning and experienced trauma. We investigated how these factors contribute to an impaired reflective functioning style, such as pathological certain or uncertain reflective functioning. Extreme scores on these two subscales reflect two kinds of impairments in reflective functioning. We assessed executive functions, reflective functioning, and trauma in 43 mothers diagnosed with substance use disorders (SUD).MethodsCertain or uncertain reflective functioning were assessed using the Reflective Functioning Questionnaire 8 (RFQ-8). Executive functions and trauma were assessed by administering various questionnaires, interviews and neuropsychological tests.ResultsHigh uncertain reflective functioning was more than six times as common (odds ratio) in mothers reporting high amounts of trauma in childhood compared with mothers reporting low amounts of trauma. Impaired executive functions were also significantly associated with high uncertain reflective functioning. Certain reflective functioning did, however, not show any significant associations.ConclusionWhen the SUD mothers give information about relational trauma in childhood, it might therefore be worth investigating and addressing the potential tendency to have an uncertain reflective functioning style.
       
  • Effect of Hypnotic Suggestion on Cognition and Craving in Smokers

    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 26 November 2019Source: Addictive Behaviors ReportsAuthor(s): Bollinger J.W., Beadling C.W., Waters A.JAbstractCigarette smoking remains an important public health concern, and novel smoking cessation interventions are needed. Craving for cigarettes is a well-established target for intervention. Recent research has identified cognitive processes associated with craving, such as attentional bias to smoking cues, as targets for intervention. One intervention that may be effective in reducing attentional bias is hypnotic suggestion. Using a counterbalanced within-subjects design in a sample of active smokers (N=33), this laboratory study examined if hypnotic suggestion can modify attention, assessed by the classic and smoking Stroop tasks, and craving. Hypnotic susceptibility was assessed using the Stanford Scale of Hypnotic Susceptibility. There was no evidence that hypnotic susceptibility moderated the effect of hypnotic suggestion on the classic or smoking Stroop effects. However, hypnotic susceptibility did moderate the effect of hypnotic suggestion on craving, such that hypnotic suggestion reduced craving in individuals with high levels of susceptibility. Further research into the mechanisms by which hypnotic suggestion reduces craving is warranted.
