Hi Melanie, I quit drinking for that reason and haven't touched a drink since.

You're fearing something though, try to figure out what it is you fear about the drinking. Don't worry things will get better, just know you're not alone in how you feel.

Me too, ive quit drinking and even smoking. I did have some beers over some milestones or achievements and it felt okay I guess . I'm saying okay is because my fear of having more migraine and vision changes, to which is ever evolving anyways

This is what's baffling me,I'm not sure if it's because I haven't had a drink for so long since my anxiety I'm abit worried on how it's going to make me feel. Also before I had anxiety I realised that I was drinkin less n less, when I was going out it was as if I was going off alcohol ( which isn't like me) n now I'm scared of touching the stuff. I don't want this anxiety taking over more of my life as it already is x
