Different types of alcohol trigger different emotional responses

Wine officially makes people feel sexier than beer – but only until they get tired

According to new research, different types of alcohol can affect your mood in varying ways. The researchers found that women were more likely than men to associate most types of positive and negative emotions with drinking alcohol of any type. In addition, self-reported data are only as good as a participant's memory, and the survey didn't ask how quickly they were drinking, what their moods were like before they took the first sip, or if there was something like dancing or drugs involved that may have changed the overall experience.

According to the researchers, drinks with a higher concentration of alcohol will give a feel of aggression to the consumer.

If you want to feel relaxed after a hard day, better order wine or beer.

Professor Mark Bellis of Bangor University, who is also Public Health Wales' director of policy, research and worldwide development, said: "For centuries, the history of rum, gin, vodka and other spirits has been laced with violence".

Mark Bellis, who led the research team, summing up the survey, in particular, noted that, after reviewing about a hundred years, came to the conclusion that, notwithstanding the high civilization of modern society, the use of visokogradnya drinks leads to very aggressive behavior, and more often than other types of alcohol.

What's more, spirit drinkers were also the most likely to feel confident (59%), energised (58%) or sexy (42%). Tearfulness was reported by nearly 25% of spirit drinkers, 17% of red wine drinkers, and 9% of beer and white wine drinkers, reports the Telegraph. And beer followed closely behind in second place. This study allowed us to get a fuller picture of the ups and downs people get from drinking, which drinks are linked with which emotions, and which groups are most at risk from some of the most concerning outcomes, such as feeling aggressive.

"Understanding emotions associated with alcohol consumption is imperative to addressing alcohol misuse, providing insight into what emotions influence drink choice between different groups in the population", the researchers concluded, noting 3.3 million deaths and around one in 20 cases of ill health and injury around the globe are directly attributable to alcohol.

But spirits were more likely to elicit some positive feelings than either beer or wine.

This compared to about two per cent of wine drinkers and seven per cent of beer drinkers. Be it an alcoholic or non-alcoholic drink, it does have a specific impact on you. To some extent, the educational level of a person, social status and the country where they live also counted as influential factors. It showed that they were six times more aggressive than the off and on alcohol users.

But they add that their findings suggest that those who are dependent on alcohol drink as a coping mechanism rather than for pleasure. The effects of alcohol such people is reflected in sharply increasing anger, rage, and fear.

The study's authors ensured that all respondents had reported drinking all types of alcohol included in the analysis over the past 12 months in order to make for a fair comparison.
