Abstract/Summary This study focussed on the role of alcohol related metacognitions on craving in individuals who were misusing alcohol. Specifically it focussed on discovering whether alcohol related metacognitions have a stronger role in the perseveration of craving for alcohol than more general metacognitions. The results partially predicted the hypotheses. Alcohol related metacognitions are better predictors of craving in individuals misusing alcohol than general metacognitions. More specifically, negative alcohol related metacognitions relating to the belief that ones thoughts about alcohol are uncontrollable were uniquely associated with craving in individuals misusing alcohol after controlling for other alcohol related negative metacognitions, such as those relating to harm, positive alcohol related metacognitions, and metacognitions in general. Therefore, treating negative alcohol related metacognitions regarding uncontrollability from a metacognitive framework may be a valuable step forward in reducing craving in individuals who misuse alcohol
