How do different alcohols affect our mood? "Emotions experienced could also be related to when the alcohol is drunk, the levels of alcohol within each beverage type and the different compounds found in different drinks".
Bellis: The final study population was just under 30,000 people aged 18-34 year from 21 different countries. Positive emotions associated with drinking, mainly young people from 18 to 24 years, they feel a surge of energy and confidence, feel more attractive.
Red wine drinkers reported the highest level of feelings of tiredness, according to the data from nearly 30,000 people from 21 different countries. Men in particular were most likely to report feeling of aggression after consuming spirits.
Wine and beer, on the other hand, makes you feel relaxed.
Co-author Professor Mark Bellis, who is also Public Health Wales' director of policy, research and global development, added: "For centuries, the history of rum, gin, vodka and other spirits has been laced with violence".
In spirits drinkers, more people said they felt restless, aggressive and energised after drinking spirits than any other type of alcohol.
Why a tipple on a night out on the tiles raises spirits
Spirits were the least likely to be associated with feeling relaxed, with just 20 per cent saying it helped them to unwind. Similarly, almost 60% of participants said spirits made them feel confident and energetic, while 42% said spirits made them feel sexy. And beer followed closely behind in second place.
One in four wine drinkers said they felt sexier after having a couple of glasses.
Another consideration is that a person's expectations about the feelings they will have when drinking may play a part in what they experience-but this can also present a health risk.
A quarter of red and white wine drinkers feel sexy after a couple of glasses but the majority just feel exhausted, according to a new study which suggests the same drink can elicit various emotional responses. That sounds like a contradiction, but it likely suggests that these are people who tend to use booze to heighten all sorts of feelings, from celebrating to trying to feel better to wallowing in pain.
Bellis said that it makes sense that different types of drinks would work differently on the brain and emotions, given how alcohol levels vary. From the foregoing psychologists have concluded that to reduce the risk of developing alcoholism and frequency of drinking, the prices of spirits that exist today, is to significantly increase. They also reported their age, gender, and whether or not they attended high school to give a rough estimate of their socioeconomic class. Researchers from the NHS Trust in Wales and King's College London then analyzed their responses, and published their work in BMJ Open on November 21. That was more than three times the number of people who reported feeling aggressive after drinking beer, and 10 times the number for either type of wine. They stressed that I feel all these emotions more often in cases when you consume alcohol outside of home walls. The effects of alcohol such people is reflected in sharply increasing anger, rage, and fear. "This can become a risky spiral, where drinking can be seen as a solution to emotional problems that it is actually aggravating".
