Research shows that alcohol does make you happy

Drinking too much is bad for you. Period. However, research shows that, for instance, moderate drinking of wine has substantial health benefits. Now a new study finds that drinking also increases happiness (you thought so). Researchers in the U.K. set out to quantify the happiness boost you get from a glass of rosé.  They used an app called Mappiness, created by the London School of Economics, to survey 31,000 users on their happiness at random points several times a day, on a scale of 1 to 100. They found that when users were drinking, their happiness increased by 10.79 points.
