We often find ourselves attracted to alcohol as a means of relaxing our mind, but what we didn’t know was how the selection of alcohol defines our emotions.

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.”

 

The study published in journal BMJ Open was taken by individuals between the ages of 18 to 34, who had consumed alcohol in the last year. The question used in the survey probed the type of alcohol consumed by the participants and the associated emotions. And the results were based on answers of 30,000 participants who consumed beer, red and white wine.

While 53 per cent participants said that red wine made them relaxed, this feeling was linked to beer by nearly 50 per cent; and the same feeling was resonated by nearly 33 per cent with white wine. However, over 59 per cent of participants, who consumed spirits, associated it with the feeling of confidence. More than 58 per cent linked it with energy and around 42 per cent to sexiness. Meanwhile, only 10 per cent linked to the feeling of weepy with white wine.
