The booze you choose can sway your mood

Spirits like gin make you more tearful and sad than other tipples

Many drinkers claim to feel teary after a G&T, or unusually aggressive after a dram of whisky - but researchers now say they have found new evidence to suggest different types of alcohol elicit different emotional responses.

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". The percentages are all low to mid-range, with very similar scores to red wine in terms of confidence (28.27 percent), sexiness (23.73 percent), aggressiveness (2.74 percent), illness (14.50 percent) and restlessness (6.43 percent).

According to Co-author Professor Mark Bellis of Public Health Wales' Director of Policy, Research and International Development, "For centuries, the history of rum, gin, vodka and other spirits has been laced with violence".

The more people drink, the more the negatives catch up.

RG: What emotions were most strongly associated with which types of alcohol?

Spirits such as gin are more likely to induce sadness and tears, while drinking beer and wine can help you relax and lift your mood, according to the largest study that looks into how different alcoholic drinks affect emotions.

"Spirits are often consumed more quickly and contain much higher concentrations of alcohol". Researchers from Britain came to the conclusion that beer (of any kind) and red wine evoke a sense of relaxation and fatigue.

Drinking red wine may elicit conflicting responses of feeling both sexy and exhausted, a new study suggests. It may be due to the nature of the drink, such as different ingredients, alcohol content, and the amounts consumed.

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".

Meanwhile, spirits appeared to make drinkers feel more "energised" than other drinks, with more than half of drinkers reporting energy boosts.

"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".

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." So manage to solve the problem of increasing the number of people with alcohol dependence and the level of violence in society, he added.

"It just doesn't work that great with alcoholism", Krakower said.
