    Alcohol and anxiety

    Hi everyone. I normally drink alcohol without issues (if anything it usually HELPS my anxiety temporarily, at least socially) but last night when I got home, I was still pretty intoxicated and I started feeling a weird surge of adrenaline mixed with nausea and these horrible feelings of depression. A really strange thing to be feeling while drunk. So I just got in bed, turned off the lights and started texting my friend about it and he made me feel better and then I finally just dozed off. Does anyone else ever have a response like this to alcohol? I've been drinking socially for 10 years and have NEVER felt this. I'm thinking it might be time to stop.

    Yep. Drinking makes my anxiety worse. There have been a few times where I had an anxiety attack while drunk & it was the worst.

    Read the thread titled "help! please read!" might be helpful to you.

    No medications. Alcohol is the only drug I consume regularly; I'm not even on birth control and I avoid caffeine. Just drank beer, which is what I normally drink.

    Damn! It was probably something that had caffeine or taurine in it is my guess! Sigh. I used to be fine consuming the "normal" substances that most people are fine with. I hate my stupid brain.

    Who ended up with stims? I didn't! I was referring to your experience. I'm not sure what happened to me.
