New Study Finds That Different Types Of Alcohol Affect You Differently

Submitted by: fancylad 3 weeks ago in Science

According to a new study published in the British Medical Journal's BMJ Open suggests various types of booze affect your emotions differently, of course, anyone who drinks knows that. But just to confirm what we already knew, the study suggests that while red wine makes people relaxed, the harder stuff like vodka and tequila brings forth feelings of aggression, restlessness, and tearfulness.


Is there a difference in how you feel after drinking red wine versus hard liquor? I've always thought so (sleepy with beer and wine, invigorated with dirty martinis and tequila shots), and now a study published in British Medical Journal’s BMJ Open suggests that perhaps different types of alcohol really do affect different emotions after drinking them.

The study, published on Tuesday, suggests that hard liquor makes people feel confident, energized and "sexy," while red wine makes people feel "relaxed." And spirits seem to take a more negative turn. "Drinking spirits was far more likely to elicit feelings of aggression, illness, restlessness, and tearfulness than wine or beer.and spirits more often make people feel aggressive, weepy, and ill," says Popular Science.

Meh. It's a survey: meaning they have no intention of factoring out bias, whether it be cultural or personal. If you ask someone about a well known preconceived idea, they will likely verify it. 

Get people drunk and record their reactions including violence, the use of the word love, etc and you will get an actual scientific report. 

This is soft science tripe...

monkwarrior Drinking doesn't "make" you a certain way. It is well documented as a method to reduce anxiety which allows your actual personality to amplify itself with less concern regarding social or personal limitation.

The Irish have known this for centuries. They're much nicer if you buy them a whiskey than if you buy them a pint.
