The aim of this research was to investigate the relation of anxiety sensitivity and coping strategies with drinking motives among students in Croatia. The sample comprised 423 students; 169 males and 254 females. Measuring instruments were Anxiety Sensitivity Index, COPE and Drinking Motives Questionnaire. Significant differencies were found between males and females in drinking motives. A positive correlation was established between drinking motives and some indicators of drinking habits. Students with higher social motives, coping motives and enhancement motives drink alcohol more often and more. Regression analysis suggested that psychic and physical aspect of anxiety sensitivity and emotion focused coping are significant predictors of conformity motives. Psychic aspect of anxiety sensitivity, problem focused coping, emotion focused coping and avoidance proved as significant predictors of coping motives. Avoidance proved to be significant predictor of social drinking motives and enhancement motives.
