Consumption of various drugs, such as LSD, cocaine and marijuana, has long been an important interest of psychological research. There are various approaches to studying drug consumption, such as focusing on the health and social outcomes of drugs, biological effects of drugs on human body, or the processes that take place in consumption of drugs. For the purpose of this chapter, we will focus on some of the common processes that take place in drug consumption; specifically, what are the factors that contribute to consumption of drugs by some individuals and not others. Some of these processes that have been studied previously include affective influences, expectancies about drug use, the context the person is in, and personality traits, such as impulsivity. A review of these processes will provide a comprehensive source that explains the common underlying factors and processes that are present in drug consumption. All of these risk factors for drug use appear to have independent and interactive effects and can be integrated together into a unifying theory of drug consumption using the personality trait of impulsivity, and more specifically, the tendency to act impulsively during extreme emotional
states (a trait referred to as urgency). Knowledge about the different processes that underlie drug consumption, as well as how these processes seem to be related to one another is crucial to advance the research on drug use as well as some of the intervention studies that are related to consumption of drugs.
