Ben you already know that using something like alcohol to take the edge off your anxiety is a short term fix, which leads to a deeper problem in the end. I dont drink, but most of my friends do. I manage to have fun without alcohol and im sure you can too. what you need to work out is the root cause of the anxiety and ways in which you can better manage it. do you see a therapist or counsellor?
Good luck Ben, keep us posted,
love Maz XX
