  • Hi

    The short answer to your question is a great big yes. Alcohol affects the levels of serotonin, and other chemicals in your brain leading to you feeling worse and far more anxious than usual - not only that, it can last for many hours after you stop drinking. Sometimes we think it helps to 'forget' by having a drink - but that one drink can become several, leading to a worsening level of anxiety.

  • I thought so I just feel like I'm gonna pass out and feel all funny:/

  • Drink plenty of water and lie down for a while - should help a bit.
