(ORDO NEWS) — Mood changes affect alcohol cravings differently in men and women, according to new research from the University of Florida.
The work of scientists was published in the journal Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research.
The experiment involved 69 volunteers aged 18 to 29 years. All of them drank alcohol, but they did not have problems with its use.
For 15 days, study participants filled out questionnaires in which they answered questions about cravings for alcohol and about their mood.
Scientists analyzed all the answers and came to the conclusion that craving for alcoholic beverages in women and men occurs with opposite sensations.
So, in a good mood, men paid more attention to alcohol and were drawn to it, while in women such a state arose during mood swings.
