There’s nothing worse than the inevitable drowsiness that comes with a long session of drinking. We’ve all felt the familiar yawns creep up at around 7 pm on a Saturday night when you’ve been drinking for about 4 hours already but still need to last another 5 before you can even consider hitting the town.
Well, a new study has pretty much confirmed what anyone who has ever got wine drunk before knows. Apparently, a quarter of red wine drinkers (25 percent) say they feel pretty sexy after a glass, but wine also appears to make 3 in 5 consumers (60 percent) feel tired AF.
The findings have come from a new study that analysed data from the Global Drug Survey to find that different variations of alcohol elicit different emotional responses from people… shocker!
According to the data from almost 30,000 people in 21 different countries, red wine makes people feel the most tired, spirits give them the energy boost they need and beer drinkers are the most relaxed.
Researchers said: “Understanding emotions associated with alcohol consumption is imperative to addressing alcohol misuse, providing insight into what emotions influence drink choice between different groups in the population.”
Co-author Professor Mark Bellis, who is also Public Health Wales’ director of policy, research and international 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 are more likely to result in feelings of aggression than other drinks.”
