This study sought feedback from teachers and adolescents on a novel intervention to reduce alcohol misuse based on the Prototype Willingness Model. A qualitative, think aloud interview study was conducted with 17 adolescents aged 11-14 and nine teachers. Transcripts were analysed using thematic analysis. Adolescents found the content of the intervention appealing and credible. Teachers welcomed the content and format of as a means of generating discussion. ‘Moderate’ drinking appeared to be an acceptable message, although difficult to define. Enacting ‘if-then’ plans in real social situations might be challenging and representations of drinking on social media should be considered.
