Drinking gin really does make you sad: Study discovers how spirits affect your emotions

Choice Of Booze May Define Your Mood

Men were significantly more likely than women to associate aggression with all types of alcohol. Spirits were also linked with restlessness and tearfulness, as well as aggression. On the other hand, red wine was the most likely to elicit this feeling (just under 53 per cent) followed by beer (around 50 per cent).

It asked people about the emotions they experienced while drinking one of four types of alcohol.

About half of those who drink red wine and beer said it makes them feel relaxed and mellow, results from the Global Drug Survey show.

Professor Mark Bellis, Public Health Wales' director of policy, research and worldwide development, says we should pay extra attention to spirits, which are associated with a rich history of violence.

Drinking spirits was more likely to draw out negative feelings than all the other types of alcohol, according to the study by Public Health Wales in the UK.

The study, was led by experts at Bangor University and King's College London, found red wine was likely to make people feel sexy and relaxed - but also exhausted and tearful.

Moreover, spirits have a higher alcohol content. "People get that rush", he said, "and of course it damps down the consideration of the repercussions of some of the actions they might take".

"Young people will often drink spirits on a night out, whereas wine might be drunk more at home, with a meal", he says. Men more often associated feelings of aggression with alcohol, according to the survey results. The responses differed by gender and category of alcohol dependency. In fact, almost a third of respondents - 30 per cent - ticked the box linking spirits with feelings of aggression (compared to 7 per cent for red wine).

A study of 30,000 18 to 34-year-olds from 21 countries has found that we do indeed have different emotional responses to different alcohol types. It may be due to the nature of the drink, such as different ingredients, alcohol content, and the amounts consumed.

It also suggested that the likelihood of a person feeling aggressive after drinking was increased among people who had a higher dependancy on alcohol.

The findings suggest that "people who are heavier drinkers are even more likely to associate certain drinks with energy and confidence". "This can become a risky spiral, where drinking can be seen as a solution to emotional problems that it is actually aggravating".

"Pacing any type of alcohol consumption is important to retaining control and avoiding getting more inebriated than you can manage", he said. So manage to solve the problem of increasing the number of people with alcohol dependence and the level of violence in society, he added. "When you pick up one drink, it's hard to say, 'I'm only going to have two or three.' It usually becomes 10 or 20". Their observations, the scientists published in the edition of BMJ Open.
