You are what you drink

Revealed the type of booze that’s most likely to make you cry

Only 2.5 percent of red wine drinkers listed aggressive. For instance, our results suggest that people who are heavier drinkers may be relying on certain drinks for energy and confidence, but heavier drinkers are also much more likely to report negative emotions as well. A study of the emotional state of his players, the experts were able to establish a connection between the type of drink consumed and feelings of the person.

"Gin really does make you more tearful than beer or wine", reported the Daily Telegraph, although the study asked only about spirits, not gin specifically.

In a survey of almost 30,000 young adults from 21 countries, 59 per cent said spirits boosted their energy and confidence, while 43 per cent associated the tipple with sexiness. This study allowed us to get a fuller picture of the ups and downs people get from drinking, which drinks are linked with which emotions, and which groups are most at risk from some of the most concerning outcomes, such as feeling aggressive.

Mark Bellis, a professor of public health at Bangor University in the U.K and the lead author of this study, said that the consumption of spirits have been associated with violence for years, and their new study is once again substantiating this fact. Those who were dependent on alcohol were most likely to link any type of alcohol to an emotional response (both positive and negative). "This can result in a quicker stimulating effect as blood alcohol levels increase", he explained. But what if the type of alcoholic drink we choose could directly affect our emotions?

It's the biggest study to ever document how people react to alcohol, mood-wise.

For advice on how to reduce drinking, visit Drinkaware or Alcohol Concern. The scores for aggressiveness, restlessness, and tearfulness don't look like much on their own, particularly in comparison with all those other scores we've already looked at here - they measured at 29.83 percent, 27.81 percent, and 22.24 percent - but those percentages are much higher than they are for all of the other beverage options; so, it's safe to say that drinking, say, whiskey will probably make you feel more aggressive than, say, drinking merlot will. British scientists have noted that men in a state of intoxication more in control of their emotions than women.

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".

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. But it's not all doom and gloom in the spirit world; vodka, gin and rum turned out to be the most energy and confidence boosting cocktails of the bunch, with more than half of all respondents admitting to feelings of Dutch courage.
