Does vodka actually make you more aggressive?

We've all got that one thing we don't ever drink because it makes us overly emotional, right? They answered a series of questions about alcohol, in particular how much they eat, what drinks I prefer, and what do you feel after eating.

Co-author Professor Mark Bellis, who is also Public Health Wales' director of policy, research and worldwide development, added: "For centuries, the history of rum, gin, vodka and other spirits has been laced with violence". This global study suggests even today consuming spirits is more likely to result in feelings of aggression than other drinks, ' says study co-author Professor Mark Bellis. It may be due to the nature of the drink, such as different ingredients, alcohol content, and the amounts consumed. Many of them are confident that their behavior did not change much, although, actually, it is not so.

Spirits were the least likely to be associated with feeling relaxed (20%); while red wine was the most likely to elicit this feeling (just under 53%), followed by beer (about 50%).

Vodka, gin and rum appeared to be most commonly associated with violence, with 30 per cent of respondents reporting feeling aggressive after drinking spirits. But now, data from one of the largest surveys on drug and alcohol use finally prove it: hard liquor gives most people that extra ~swag~. A new study has determined how different types of alcohol affect your emotions - and, as an added bonus, this new and exciting information might also might help you figure out what to partake in and what to ignore at all those holiday get-togethers you probably have coming up over the next few months. The age of participants ranged from 18 to 34 years, they all point not only your gender and preferences in alcoholic beverages, as well as where they often have to use them, but also the health status and the presence of various diseases.

It also suggested that the likelihood of a person feeling aggressive after drinking was increased among people who had a higher dependancy on alcohol. That was more than three times the number of people who reported feeling aggressive after drinking beer, and 10 times the number for either type of wine.

The researchers note that this is an "observational study so no firm conclusions can be drawn about cause and effect".

He said: "Spirits are often consumed more quickly and have much higher concentrations of alcohol in them. This highlights a potential emotional gap which individuals may be looking to fill by drinking alcohol", the researchers write.

These effects of alcohol are negative.

After completion of the study, researchers found that different types of alcohol can trigger different emotions in the minds of the consumer. Further, it suggests its findings may help to curb drink dependency: "These results suggest that the different types of alcohol are not necessarily perceived or used in the same way and therefore harm prevention policy may benefit from treating types of drinks differently, especially when addressing spirits and, for instance their significant association with aggression".
