Hard alcohol could make you feel instantly sexier, according to science


RG: Were there differences between men and women? .

Researchers from Public Health Wales and King's College London questioned almost 30,000 people aged between 18 and 24 to find out how drinking beer, wine and spirits affected them in different settings.

"It just doesn't work that great with alcoholism", Krakower said.

Research has found that different types of alcohol have different effects on personality.

If you want to feel relaxed after a hard day, better order wine or beer.

Additionally, only 20 percent of participants reported feeling relaxed after drinking vodka or rum. But the most unpleasant effect of the use of this category of alcohol is unmotivated aggression, arising as if from nowhere. On the other hand, a wine has a little more positive impact. Some respondents said even the complete absence of any new emotions after consuming this drink.

In spirits drinkers, more people said they felt restless, aggressive and energised after drinking spirits than any other type of alcohol.

In fact, drinking spirits tends to draw out more negative feelings than other types of alcohol, say the United Kingdom authors. Many of them are confident that their behavior did not change much, although, actually, it is not so.

The head of the research group chose to prove that the behavior of a drunken man changes not at random, but under the influence of a particular drink, which he uses at this moment.

The study drew on data gathered by the Global Drug Survey, an independent research organisation, which runs annual self-funded surveys.

But does alcohol type really have such a profound effect on our behaviour? Once you get there, you'll probably just fall asleep.

The study explained that some particular types of drinks are known to induce stress, which brings intense emotions. Thus, according to scientists, it will be possible to reduce the level of violence in society, as well as the number of crimes on household soil, directly linked to the abuse of alcohol. This is an worldwide survey, which had participants from all over the world. To do this, the questions were translated into 11 different languages. They also reported their age, gender, and whether or not they attended high school to give a rough estimate of their socioeconomic class. Researchers from the NHS Trust in Wales and King's College London then analyzed their responses, and published their work in BMJ Open on November 21.

The study is published as the Scottish government announced it will introduce minimum pricing for alcohol on 1 May next year in a bid to combat binge drinking. So, in women, often there is a change in the emotional background, and far fewer cases of unwarranted aggression.

But the authors have found that spirits do have an upside in that they are more likely to elicit feelings of energy and confidence than beer or wine.

"This study appears to confirm the widely held perception that different drinks produce different emotional responses", James Nicholls of Alcohol Research UK and Alcohol Concern who was not involved in the study tells HuffPost UK. "Oh no", you might say, "I never drink tequila".
