Re: Alcohol and Anxiety
Firstly, CONGRATULATIONS on quitting drinking! It's going to make a huge difference to your future health and well-being. But it sounds like you've been self-medicating with alcohol, and now it's out of your system your anxiety is flaring up because it doesn't have the booze to numb it any more. The doc can give you pills for the anxiety, but that's just going to cover it up with legal medication. Is there any possibility that you could try therapy? A therapist can help you learn healthier ways to deal with your stress and anxiety.
