As well as the weather, it seems that alcohol also has an effect on my anxiety. I use to enjoy a drink or two, maybe a couple in the evening 3-4 times a week. But recently have have dropped to about 2 drinks a weeks. I really do feel refreshed and more alert with less anxiety without alcohol.

It’s not during the time I drink more, it seems that it’s the after that I suffer with higher levels of anxiety. I know it sounds like I’m looking for answers and I think it’s because I’m feeling so much better that I want to know what triggers it.

I know anxiety is closley linked with OCD and depression, but alcohol can cause these as side effects.
