Different types of alcohol trigger different emotional responses

Nearly 43 per cent said that drinking spirits made them feel sexy. More than 40 percent ticked "sexy" on the survey.

"Such prices can encourage consumption at levels harmful to the health of the drinker and through violence and injuries also represent a risk to the people around them". It is noted that the main factor of growth of the level of alcohol in the world is the availability of alcohol. White wine, unlike red, activates very mixed emotions, from the bright and positive to negative and even aggressive. The researchers found that people felt most confident and sexy after drinking hard alcohol like vodka, gin, and whiskey. Red wine was linked to a relaxed emotion for 53 percent of respondents, and 50 percent of beer drinkers.

Most people drink alcohol seeking positive effects, said the study's co-author, Mark Bellis, director of policy, research and worldwide development at Public Health Wales.

Meanwhile, almost 53 percent of respondents reported that red wine made them feel relaxed, 50 percent said the same of beer, and only 20 percent said they felt relaxed when drinking spirits.

Spirits were, however, the least likely to be associated with feeling relaxed.

They speculate that people's emotions are also likely to be affected by their mood before drinking, the speed and quantity of alcohol they drank, mixed drinks and activities such as dancing and socialising. The heaviest drinkers were twice as likely as light ones to say it made them feel confident but six times as likely to feel aggressive.

Krakower, though, doesn't think that will help folks who are dependent on alcohol. However, the reasons why people associate different types of alcohol with different emotions are likely to be complicated. They may also be less likely to be consumed with food than wine or beer. For instance, spirits are often consumed more quickly and have much higher concentrations of alcohol in them. 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.

Dancing or socialising may make people feel energised and confident, compared to sitting on the sofa watching television.

We've all got that one thing we don't ever drink because it makes us overly emotional, right?

The study has a number of limitations. We don't know how much alcohol people had drunk on the occasions they recalled, so we can't tell whether the amount varied by the type of alcohol.

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". "Someone who wants to relax might choose to have a beer or a glass of wine".
