The Psychology of Social Drinking.

Post by bindeweede » Fri Mar 10, 2017 9:40 pm

The reality, as Michael Sayette of the University of Pittsburgh explains in his review, is that alcohol’s rewarding effects interact in complex ways with our thoughts and emotions and the social situations we find ourselves in. To uncover why social drinking is so rewarding, researchers have had to develop more sophisticated, realistic experiments.
Concluding his review, Michael Sayette says that that there is still a lot more we need to know about social drinking.
More experimentation needed, I expect. :beer

Cheers!

And of course, for a valid experiment we would also have to drink when not in social situations, for comparison purposes :y
