"Young people will often drink spirits on a night out, whereas wine might be drunk more at home, with a meal", he says.

The survey asked about beer, hard liquor (or spirits), and red and white wine.

Mark Bellis: Achieving emotional and mood changes are major reasons why people consume alcohol, but for people to make informed choices about how much to drink, they need to understand the negative as well as the positive emotional changes that come with drinking.

For people drinking red wine, more drinkers said they felt relaxed, with 53% of respondents saying they felt this way, and 60% of people saying they felt exhausted after drinking.

Vodka, gin and rum appeared to be most commonly associated with violence, with 30 per cent of respondents reporting feeling aggressive after drinking spirits.

Strong spirits (like vodka, gin, or whiskey) made people feel energized (58% of people), confident (59%) and sexy (42%). Meanwhile, just 2.5% of red wine drinkers reported feeling more aggressive.

RG: What emotions were most strongly associated with which types of alcohol? "This can result in a quicker stimulating effect as blood alcohol levels increase", Bellis was quoted as saying by "The Telegraph".

Researchers claim the findings suggest that problem drinkers might rely on alcohol to generate the positive emotions associated with drinking. But men were significantly more likely to associate feelings of aggression with all types of alcohol, as were those categorised as heavy or dependent drinkers, who were six times more likely to do so than low risk drinkers.

Confidence and sexiness make up the middle ground here; 27.88 percent reported feeling confident and 25.20 percent reported feeling sexy.

The researchers said the study "represents an initial exploration of alcohol's perceived relationship with emotions on an worldwide basis, across a large sample of young people". "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". Illness and tearfulness came in at 19.29 percent and 17.10 percent - low compared to spirits. "These expectations and motivations for drinking will influence how people actually behave when they have been drinking, and may in some situations lead people to drink at levels likely to cause them harm".

A study of 30,000 18 to 34-year-olds from 21 countries has found that we do indeed have different emotional responses to different alcohol types. Drinking spirits was linked to feelings of aggression and restlessness - but also gave people a boost of energy and confidence.

It also suggested that the likelihood of a person feeling aggressive after drinking was increased among people who had a higher dependancy on alcohol.

"Spirits are often consumed more quickly and contain much higher concentrations of alcohol".
