You are what you drink

Well, according to new research, it can. Additionally, only 2.57 percent reported feeling aggressive after drinking red wine, and only 5.18 percent reported feeling restless. 53 percent of the people who took part in the survey revealed that they felt relaxed after drinking red wine.

Hard liquor causes the wildest mood swings, the researchers found.

But 59 per cent of spirit drinkers reported feelings of confidence compared to 45 per cent of beer drinkers and just over a quarter of red or white wine drinkers.

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

Co-author Mark Bellis wrote in the journal BMJ Open: "For centuries, the history of rum, gin, vodka, and other spirits has been laced with violence".

After looking at the drinking habits of people across 21 countries, the study found that different drinks affect our emotional responses in varying ways. Many of them are confident that their behavior did not change much, although, actually, it is not so.

'Results from these analyses can be used by public health bodies to better understand alcohol consumption behaviour and to inform strategies and interventions to promote changes in consumption, particularly among heavier drinkers, ' they said. For instance, spirits are often consumed more quickly and have much higher concentrations of alcohol in them. "This can result in a quicker stimulating effect as blood alcohol levels increase", he explained.

Spirits were also most likely to bring on tearfulness, according to data from the Global Drug Survey, an online questionnaire in 11 languages.

"As people get the kick from escalating alcohol levels, the same increases reduce the brain's ability to suppress impulsive feelings or to consider the consequences of acting on them".


These effects of alcohol are negative.

There's one notable exception, however.

It is worth also bearing in mind that there are compounds apart from alcohol in different drinks. Beer was also associated with feeling relaxed and confident, although it was also associated with high levels of feeling exhausted.

But those good times come at a cost.

But they add that their findings suggest that those who are dependent on alcohol drink as a coping mechanism rather than for pleasure. Similarly, almost 60% of participants said spirits made them feel confident and energetic, while 42% said spirits made them feel sexy. "In some cases, they may be reliant on certain drinks for these feelings", Bellis said. Do you feel relaxed, excited, energetic, lazy or what?

"Pacing any type of alcohol consumption is important to retaining control and avoiding getting more inebriated than you can manage", he said. It helped to guess the mindset of the person drinking. In addition, the project organizers said, was there a time in the life volunteers conflicts and fighting, provoked by use of alcohol.

If a glass of wine puts you to sleep, but harder drinks out with friends pump you up, you're not alone.

The U.S. National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism has more on the health effects of drinking.

Results of the survey were published online November 21 in BMJ Open.
