CAN DRINK­ING WINE RE­ALLY MAKE YOU HAPPY?

Daily Express - - LETTERS -

SO drink­ing a glass of plonk, par­tic­u­larly white or rosé , makes women happy. I to­tally agree (“Vino gives women joy, but men just wine about it”, June 14).

There is noth­ing bet­ter than kick­ing off your shoes af­ter a long, tir­ing day and pour­ing your­self a glass.

And the week­end isn’t the week­end with­out a cheeky glass or two on a Saturday night.

The re­search says that wine doesn’t make men as happy but I think that’s more to do with the amount they drink and the re­sult­ing hang­over. Jen­nifer Cat­ter­all,

Bin­g­ley, W Yorks WINE might give you a tem­po­rary lift when you are stressed but, be­lieve me, it makes you any­thing but happy in the long run.

All these peo­ple who ad­vo­cate a large glass or two each night don’t re­alise they could be con­sum­ing more than three times the ad­vised al­co­hol limit each week.

That af­fects their mood the next day, their health and their abil­ity to func­tion to the best of their abil­ity.

It is no won­der that more and more peo­ple are end­ing up in hos­pi­tal with al­co­hol-re­lated is­sues. And there’s noth­ing to make you happy about that.
