It's confirmed, different types of alcohol trigger different emotions in people

Men were significantly more likely than women to associate aggression with all types of alcohol. Rum, Vodka and Gin were strongly associated with feelings of aggression, illness, sadness and restlessness. More than 22% of those surveyed reported feeling tearful, compared to less than 10% of beer and white wine drinkers.

Their answers showed that they attributed different emotions - energised, relaxed, sexy, confident and exhausted, aggressive, ill, restless, and tearful - to different types of alcohol. Almost a third (30 per cent) of spirit drinkers associated the drink with feelings of aggression compared with around 2.5 per cent of red wine drinkers. "This global study suggests even today consuming spirits is more likely to result in feelings of aggression than other drinks", said study co-author Professor Mark Bellis of Public Health Wales' Director of Policy, Research and International Development.

One third of respondents to the study were female, with the researchers noting that women were more likely than men to report each emotion as a result of drinking a single type of alcohol. "Overall 29.8% of respondents reported feeling aggressive when drinking spirits, compared with only 7.1% when drinking red wine", wrote the researchers in the final report.

"Spirits are often consumed more quickly and contain much higher concentrations of alcohol". Drinking red wine can make you want to whisk your partner off to bed.

Results varied greatly between age clusters and genders but scientists are hoping that through further research, this new study could possibly help to shed some light on the reasons behind different people's alcohol dependency, by better understanding their emotional relationship with different alcoholic drinks.

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. "As people get the kick from escalating alcohol levels, the same increases reduce the brain's ability to suppress impulsive feelings or to consider the consequences of acting on them".

As heavy drinkers go down "a slippery slope", Bellis said, they may experience increasingly positive emotions from drinking, "but they're equally seeing much higher levels of those negative emotions".

Not going to lie: I'd be interested to see how the effect these boozy drinks have on your emotions measures up against that study from a few years ago that found there were four types of "drunk personalities."

"Pacing any type of alcohol consumption is important to retaining control and avoiding getting more inebriated than you can manage", he said.

This study is useful in that it can help health campaigners understand why people choose a type of alcohol in a certain situation. Their observations, the scientists published in the edition of BMJ Open.
