Exhausted of beer, vodka excites. The relation between the alcohol and emotions

That's why you will see people being aggressive after drinking. Be it an alcoholic or non-alcoholic drink, it does have a specific impact on you. The reasons behind the feelings aren't fully understood, but researchers say there are clear trends in the emotions certain alcoholic beverages brought out in 30,000 people, aged 18 to 34, from 21 countries.

Drinking spirits was also more likely to induce negative feelings than any other type of alcohol.

Over half (around 59%) of those interviewed associate these drinks with feelings of energy and confidence, and more than four out of 10 (42.5%) associate them with feeling sexy.

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.

The findings showed that men were significantly more likely to associate feelings of aggression with all types of alcohol, as were those categorised as heavy/dependent drinkers, who were six times more likely to do so than low risk drinkers. The only emotions that didn't have disproportionately high percentages are tiredness and relaxedness.

Juventus coach Allegri: Don't compare Dybala with Messi
Barcelona returned home having lost 3-0 in the first-leg of the Champions League quarter-final, a loss they couldn't recover from. Tonight, with Barcelona unbeaten in all competitions this season, Juventus could provide the stiffest test of the season so far.

For people drinking red wine, more drinkers said they felt relaxed, with 53% of respondents saying they felt this way, and 60% of people saying they felt exhausted after drinking. Each individual included in the study had drunk all the types of alcohol studied (spirits, beer, and red and white wine) in the last 12 months, so could comment on how each had affected their emotions. They were six times more likely to feel aggressive after drinking and also were more likely to feel exhausted or tearful. 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. Red wine and beer users were surprisingly relaxed. You also probably won't get super sleepy drinking white wine - tiredness scored 18.44 percent - or tearful (18.44 percent); nor, however, will you be energized by it (15.07 percent).

This compared to about two per cent of wine drinkers and seven per cent of beer drinkers. 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.

What do you feel after taking a drink at the bar? Some respondents said even the complete absence of any new emotions after consuming this drink. According to the current study, though, drinking whiskey ups a whole hosts of emotions, from confidence to aggression.

"Although these are part of the difference in taste between drinks little consideration has been given to what other effects they may have on the drinker".

The bottom line is that I have a lot of questions about the study and its results, and although the whole thing is fascinating, those questions can unfortunately only be answered by further research.
