What hormone inhibits the secretion of adh (vasopressin)? And what situations override the release of this inhibiting hormone?

ADH (vasopressin) secretion: ADH (vasopressin) is mostly controlled by plasma osmolality and plasma volume. Diabetes insipidus occurs when ADH (vasopressin) is not secreted (head trauma, pituitary tumor) or when the kidney does not respond to it (nephrogenic di). Ethanol inhibits adh, (vasopressin) as does atrial naturetic protein, but these are lesser influences than osmolality and volume.
