    I’m so anxious and nervous today, had a panic attack last night as well… geez… this all started with my addiction to booze, but man I’ve been binging a little too much lately, can that cause nervousness and anxiety when you’re NOT drinking as in going through a normal day? By the way today’s my birthday, 22 on the 22nd… interesting eh… man I am so nervous and uncomfortable…

    Yip, when drinking for days/weeks and then trying to stop, panic attacks are practically inevitable for me and all part of the horror of drinking!!! 🙁

    Luckily they do pass for me, and if I see off the first day or 2, they stop…

    Just hang in there bud, know what you’re going through – and remember each day’s that little bit easier than the day before!!!

    Let us know how you’re getting on… 🙂

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

    I am sober 7 1/2 months and still have some slight anxiety. I also suffer from panic disorder but take meds for that (Celexa)
    The first few weeks I did have a lot of anxiety and a few panic attacks, but they have subsided. If I feel the anxiety coming on, I can sometimes deep breathe them away or maybe I will so something relaxing like a bath or a good book.
    It has been getting better; a little more each day.

    Hey Paulos. Good to see you around again, sorry to hear you’re having a rough time.

    Quit drinking. I’ll bet half of your mental health problems lessen or go away completely.

    I know all about anxiety. It’s what led me to pick up many a time. I don’t have much anxiety anymore per-se. Most of the time, I’m calm and relaxed, and comfortable.

    Hi Paulos. Happy Birthday.

    I had terrible anxiety attacks 48 hours after a binge.
    In fact, there is a residential home for people with Mental health problems next door to where I live. I used to do the dishes 24 hours post binge, look out of the window and see this guy pacing up & down, agitated & distracted. I was feeling like **** myself and couldn’t help but feel a connection to him. I was terrified.
    I still get upset and worried but now I know that’s me and I can work on it with therapy and fellowship, free from the drug of alcohol that clouded the whole issue.
    Who knows on your 23rd birthday you may enjoy it, like you’ve always deserved. Sobriety gives us the gift of life.

    Happy belated Bday Paulos!!!

    I know all about the panic attacks. My father has them too, and now I have them. It’s no freakin fun shakin, trembling, can’t get your breath, and feeling like you’re having a heart attack. And when I’m having one I have the urge to drink or smoke some bud to make it go away. Then I gotta fight that urge. It’s like a never ending viscious cycle of nothingness.

    GlassPrisoner says it all. Kind of hard though to quit if you are not ready to quit. Make a decision Paulos and then follow it with action.
