The Global Drug Survey gathered responses from almost 30,000 people in 21 countries speaking 11 different languages. Respondents reported different reactions depending on the type of alcohol consumed.

Co-author Professor Mark Bellis, who is also Public Health Wales' director of policy, research and worldwide development, said: "For centuries, the history of rum, gin, vodka and other spirits has been laced with violence".

'Emotions experienced could also be related to when the alcohol is drunk, the levels of alcohol within each beverage type and the different compounds found in different drinks'.

Meanwhile, red wine (53 per cent) and beer (50 per cent) were found to be the most relaxing alcoholic drinks. They were opportunistic sample, so are not meant to be fully representative of people in each country.

The findings come from a large new study which discovered that different types of alcohol elicit different emotional responses.

RG: What emotions were most strongly associated with which types of alcohol?

If you drink the hard stuff, you're much more likely to feel energized, confident, and sexy; those three emotions clocked in at 58.36 percent, 59.08 percent, and 42.42 percent, respectively.

Their answers showed that they attributed different emotions - energised, relaxed, sexy, confident and exhausted, aggressive, ill, restless, and tearful - to different types of alcohol.

People's preconceptions about drinks also play a role - for example if people drink red wine to relax they will probably end up more relaxed, and if they drink vodka to party they will probably end up feeling energised. Beer increased both relaxation and confidence.

Bellis: There are many factors that may link different drinks to different emotional outcomes.

People who are intoxicated often simply don't remember what happened to them during the repast and after it, for sure, that their behavior does not change much, though it is not so. The effects of alcohol such people is reflected in sharply increasing anger, rage, and fear. (Worth noting, though, is that "the sample is opportunistic and non-probability samples cannot be considered representative of more general population groups, as the study authors put it.) And it appears that, for each of four families of alcohol type - spirits, red wine, white wine, and beer - the type of booze you drink can push and pull on your emotions in different ways". "Generally, men have a greater involvement in violence than women, and so it is not surprising that drinking alcohol exposes some of this underlying difference in behaviors".

Another consideration is that a person's expectations about the feelings they will have when drinking may play a part in what they experience-but this can also present a health risk. The journal points out that: "Respondents' level of alcohol dependency was strongly associated with feeling all emotions, with the likelihood of aggression being significantly higher in possible dependent versus low risk drinkers".
