Hi guys, thank you all for your responses! sorry its taken me so long to write on here but have had comp probs lol
Anyway.. basically i posted because i wanted to know about drinking NOT to relieve anxiety ( i wouldnt do this) But drinking when your having bad anxiety issues. I have anticipatory anxiety, and i know someone did mention about that, i mean in all honesty i have gone without drinking for over a year and i do feel great without it, i did go to a party the other night but i had my son who i brought ( was more a friends gathering) so at least i had him for an excuse not to drink and i had fun just as if i had been drunk! and i wouldnt drink to get drunk just to the tipsy stage. but i guess i do miss having that social tipsy and carefree feeling.
I have gotten bad irrational anxieties latley which i had never had before in this way where ive felt intense and i get very obsessed over these irrational things, and i guess i wanted to know if drinking during these times ( well i had a fear that if i drank my irrational fears might heighten and get messy and was scared of things becomming dellusional or something haha but yeh i guess getting tipsy is ok but i think my main prob would be the anticipation of it. I think if im in doubt and have any full on issues i just wont drink and wait for a better day when im more confidant. I was thinking though... because of anticipation and curiousity, i thought of maybe getting a drink and having it at home by myself just to "see" test it out, but i dont know maybe that would just be stupid so i dont know, perhaps i should just give it up all together... but i miss it just as a relaxing social thing. its a great way to feel relaxed and get a little crazy.. although i suppose im crazy enough for this lifetime :)
