The anonymised responses from the Global Drug Survey - the world's largest online survey of legal and illicit drug and alcohol use among adults - also revealed spirits to be more commonly associated with aggression with 30% of drinkers reporting feeling aggressive, compared to about 2.5% of red or white wine drinkers and 7% of beer drinkers. For example, people who drink spirits regularly usually tend to elicit negative feelings when compared to other types of beverages.

Out of all the types of alcohol included in the survey, spirits were found to bring about the most negative effects on its consumers. Almost one third of spirit drinkers linked feelings of aggression with their drink compared with around 2.5 per cent of red wine drinkers. It could be, for example, that people drank spirits while out dancing, which might make them feel energised, and drank red wine at home watching TV, when they were exhausted. Only 20 per cent associated hard spirits with the feeling of being relaxed. The study found spirits make you feel angry, sexy or tearful and beer can make you feel relaxed. 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". "This can result in a quicker stimulating effect as blood alcohol levels increase", he explained.
