There have been some threads on drinking and anxiety. You would do well to find those and read them. Some people on this forum drink even though it may cause some anxiety the next day. Others don't drink at all because of medications or other reasons.
I think the biggest concern is that the drinking to cover the anxiety may become a habit. Then you have two problems.
Thank you so much for sharing and congratulations on your sobriety. I am very proud of you. I too understand how easy it is to hide in substance use but in the end it is never the right answer and our demons are still there to deal with.
