Strain Distribution of Average Daily Ethanol Consumption. Rats were given 10% ethanol as their only choice of fluid for one week (week 0). For the next seven weeks, rats were given a choice of two bottles, one with water and one with a 10% ethanol solution. The data shown are mean ± SEM of average daily ethanol consumption (g/kg body weight) during the second week of the two-bottle choice paradigm.
