Joe Vs. Joe: Turning to One’S Partner Versus Favorite Product in Emotion Regulation

We compare negative emotion regulation strategies of support from partner vs. consumption of favorite beverage. When the negative emotion is irritation (vs. sadness or anxiety) a larger number turn to their product. Furthermore, those who imagine product consumption (vs. partner support) in irritation condition report more reduced feelings of irritation.
