Anxiety got worse after the consumption of alcohol.
Hello, I have terrible anxiety and used alcohol to cope, having a few glasses of wine a night, even finishing the bottle some nights. I had a realization that alcohol can make anxiety worse I have given up. My anxiety is through the roof, I have no appetite, sweating buckets, and have trouble sleeping. Is this all caused by not drinking? How long will it last? Any idea? What can help me? I am 27 years old.
@rohan-j Hello sir, it is better to take professional help in treating your anxiety. Alcohol is a depressant and will not help your anxiety other than numbing you and training the opiate receptors. Occasionally depending on how often and how many drinks as many use alcohol constantly training the brain to rely on alcohol. Of course, this has a lot of long-term health issues. Also, changing lifestyle by eating healthily, exercising, and relaxing practices can make a huge difference. Thanks!
