The Newcastle Substance Use Questionnaire (NSUQ) Motive section is developed based on a novel theoretical background which is instrumental motives. This study aimed to investigate the latent factor
structure of the motives of alcohol and cannabis use. There were 285 participants completing the NSUQ-Alcohol, while 62 of them also answered the NSUQ-Cannabis. Exploratory factor analysis (EFA) was performed through FACTOR version 9.2. The NSUQ-Alcohol motives consisted of 14 items. Three-factor model was retained: the social factor explained the largest variance (3.28), being followed by the perspective taking (3.13) and lastly, the sexual motive (1.85). The NSUQ-Cannabis motives comprised of 16 items which was divided also into three factors. The perspective taking factor contributed the most variance (2.72), being followed by the social motive factor (2.47) and the physical motive factor (1.05). These factors may reflect motives of students consuming alcohol and cannabis recreationally.
