Hi. I am a recovering alcoholic who would use alcohol to self medicate my anxiety. I have social anxiety. I have a difficult time going to AA meetings because it exasperates my anxiety. When I walk into the room my heart starts pounding. I have a hard time staying focused and engaged during the meeting. I find my self looking at my watch to see how much time is left before it ends. Can anyone relate? And if so what tools do you use to,lessens the anxiety . Thanks!
