so it’s been like at least 2 yrs since I drunk a lot of alcohol enough to get tipsy and I quit for a reason because back then it made me feel very anxious

I’m having a bad aftermath like bad anxiety ptsd type vibes and I’m not liking it has anyone else been Through this??🤔

I quit drinking in December because it made me have panic attacks but since I quit I feel like they gotten worse.

It’s weird how this whole thing works out I’ll never go back but it Definitely expose my anxiety

also i felt these feelings when i drink coffee < so it could be that too

mostly you should quit cause it will get you too much drunk and will get you sick, have you drink water lately ? mostly that helps your body work and feel good, mostly i never drink that type of stuff cause i am a teenager and still a kid but i know all of this importent stuff cause i went to a class that told me this and i just wanted to help friends and adults feel safe and not sick, like my mom i just told her to stop smoking and to drink at least only 1 or 2 but that is it cause of resterunts and that is it you know,

in what we put in our bodies. Good response from you :) xx

Oh I know how true it is about drinking enough water each day.

I now line up my bottles of water for day so I can keep count in what

I'm drinking. Good advice for sure :) xx

but you never had it looked at by the doctor? x

You must be in pain I would think..

Hi James, "mydog" is very knowledgeable as a young student.

She's certainly right concerning water. Whenever alcohol is in

the system, or caffeine or even MSG (which all can trigger anxiety)

a fast safe solution is flushing the chemicals out of the body by drinking

plenty of water. Alcohol and Caffeine are both hydrating.

Feel better soon my friend :) xx

ok thanks

mostly i knew it in my head already

i like teenagers to know this as well i do in my brain and mind

Good morning,I hope that you are doing well today! Congratulations on hitting your two-year mark of not drinking that is wonderful!- I have a couple of thoughts for you; 1). What kind of interests/ hobbies do you have that you like to do? 2). When you start to feel that anxiety, have you ever thought about starting getting active, like go running or walking, doing a workout at the gym...? These kind of exercises will help refocus your mind and the exercise is healthy for you, physically, mentally, and emotionally...
