Does vodka actually make you more aggressive?

According to a survey of legal and illicit drug and alcohol use among adults spirits are the drink likely to be associated with the emotion of “relax.”

According to research by Public Health Wales, spirits such as vodka, gin, whisky or rum are more likely to draw out negative feelings than all the other types of booze. This same group was also more likely to report feeling all of the more positive emotions when drinking, too. Mark Bellis has set out to prove that changes in the behavior of a drunken man do not occur randomly, and depending on what kind of alcoholic beverage he had consumed.

The researchers also found that spirits were associated with the highest levels of feeling amorous, with four in 10 saying that spirits made them feel this way. Beer was also associated with feeling relaxed and confident, although it was also associated with high levels of feeling exhausted. They were six times more likely to feel aggressive after drinking and also were more likely to feel exhausted or tearful. Study author Mark Bellis, a researcher at Public Health Wales, tells us more.

Public Health Wales surveyed nearly 30,000 people aged between 18 and 34 from 21 countries to determine their emotional responses to different types of alcoholic drink and found spirits were the most likely to make us unhappy. "Someone who wants to relax might choose to have a beer or a glass of wine".

A group of researchers from the United Kingdom (where else?) set out to see how different types of alcohol affect your mood.

Furthermore, the study does point out some of its limitations: We don't know, for example, how much of the effects were due to the drinks themselves versus the contexts in which the drinks were consumed (did social situations change anything?), or whether someone's expectations of what would happen to them when they drank a specific beverage had anything to do with what they felt after drinking it.




"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". "This can result in a quicker stimulating effect as blood alcohol levels increase", he explained.

Men and women also react differently to the same drinks. They found significant differences between different types of drinks. For a survey of 29 thousands of young men and women living in 21 countries.

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

RG: How do you hope your results will be used? . "This highlights a potential emotional gap which individuals may be looking to fill by drinking alcohol", the researchers write. It may be due to the nature of the drink, such as different ingredients, alcohol content, and the amounts consumed. The emotional side of drinking is another important aspect to consider when trying to tackle alcohol related harms.

Red wine drinkers reported the highest level of feelings of tiredness, according to the data from nearly 30,000 people from 21 different countries. We hope that the results can help understand and prevent unsafe spirals where some people see drinking as the solution to emotional problems that it is actually aggravating.
