    to continue to self-administrator

    Increasing scientific evidence suggests that all drugs of abuse, including nicotine, boost dopamine to one degree or another; however, in experimental studies with laboratory animals, selectively knocking out these specific dopamine pathways affects the quality of alcohol administration but not the various reinforcers that prompt the animal to continue to self-administrator.

    Re: to continue to self-administrator
