In brief: Seretonin
While alcohol may temporarily cause you to feel relaxed (it works on gaba receptors in the brain and acts as a depressant), long term use may actually deplete stores of the "feel good" hormone seretonin.
If you are having a reaction to alcohol, i suggest abstaining and trying a non-alcoholic alternative.
