Bangor University study reveals different emotional responses to alcohol

  • Does red wine actually make you feel more relaxed or is it just a myth

What's more, spirit drinkers were also the most likely to feel confident (59%), energised (58%) or sexy (42%). Rum, Vodka and Gin were strongly associated with feelings of aggression, illness, sadness and restlessness.

Vodka, gin and rum appeared to be most commonly associated with violence, with 30 per cent of respondents reporting feeling aggressive after drinking spirits.

Reminding people of the emotional downsides of alcohol use through public-health campaigns could help curb problem drinking, he said, "so that people are not overly swayed by just the positive messages, which perhaps they watch or listen to every day". White wine, unlike red, activates very mixed emotions, from the bright and positive to negative and even aggressive. Dependent drinkers were also more likely to experience negative emotions like aggression, restfullness, and sadness. Nearly one in three (30 per cent) spirit drinkers found that it made them more aggressive, compared to just 2.5 per cent of red or white wine drinkers and 7 per cent of beer drinkers saying the same. But it's important not to let the myths get in the way of the facts. Probably the most likely thing that will happen is you'll relax a bit (32.67 percent) - although not as much as you would if you drink red wine instead.

Confidence and sexiness make up the middle ground here; 27.88 percent reported feeling confident and 25.20 percent reported feeling sexy.

The study was carried out by researchers from Public Health Wales and Kings College London.

Trump names North Korea a state sponsor of terrorism
"Today, the United States is designating North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism ". Tillerson noted that it had been about two months since the country tested a missile.

Researchers restricted their analysis to responses from 29,836 people, aged 18 to 34 who reported drinking all four types of alcohol in the questionnaire at some point in the past 12 months and who had a different favourite drink type depending on whether they were at home or out. It was published in the peer-reviewed medical journal BMJ Open, which is free to read online.

In comparison, more than half of red wine drinkers said they felt more relaxed after their favourite drink, a feeling also shared with 50 per cent of beer drinkers. It also asked how often people drank, and which drinks they chose in different settings.

It also suggested that the likelihood of a person feeling aggressive after drinking was increased among people who had a higher dependancy on alcohol. That might explain why people feel more emotional when drinking spirits.

Emphasising the study to be observational - where no firm conclusions can be drawn about cause and effect - the authors wrote: "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". Although these are part of the difference in taste between drinks, little consideration has been given to what other affects they may have on the drinker.
