Alcohol and anxiety

Literally been miserable for 2 days over this upcoming appointment tried my lavender oil deep breathing everything and can't shake it I hate to say it but I think I'm going to break down and buy a bottle of wine! I need to relax I'm so tense my muscles hurt like a charlie horse... hate using alcohol for a relief... does anybody have this issue?

hi no harm in having a glass of wine to relax you.but too much then tomorrow you might feel more anxiety than you do just now.

Yea that's usually how it is , seems to be the fastest way to calm down anymore scary when you have a family full of alcoholics but hoping after my appointment is over I won't have to use the alcohol anymore

Like Kenster1 says occasionally is ok but if you find you are desperate for more drink than usual and need it to feel comforted perhaps speak to your doctor
