Getting Drunk Increases the Risk of Violent or Aggressive Behavior

Getting drunk with family or friends can be an enjoyable experience for you, but it could increase the risk for violent behavior, a new Scandinavian study suggests.

Previous studies have shown a link between drinking and violent actions. The study evaluated that whether drinking causes roughness, or the behavior is instead due to other factors like personality features. Many of the studies were performed in a laboratory which does not necessarily demonstrate the real-world drunkenness.

Binge drinking brings a person’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) to 0.08 percent or above, according to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. The condition occurs when men prefer five or more drinks or women consume four or more drinks in a two-hour period.

Bring drinking have the strong association with unintentional harm and injuries from car accidents, burns, alcohol poisoning, and falls.

Another recent study shows drinking gives you social confidence and makes you feel relax. After a long day of working if you are trying to relax, wine can help you.

A team of researchers in the U.K. revealed that spirits like whiskey, vodka, gin, and other hard alcohols have a link with a range of strong feelings. They develop negative feelings such as aggression, restlessness, and tearfulness. But they also help to develop some positive emotions, including feeling energized confident.

Professor Mark Bellis, Public Health Wales’ director of policy, research and international development, 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.”
