hey there, very smart questions. because some people think of alcohol as a depressant and they use it to cure their anxiety. But what they don't know that drinking excessively makes anxiety worse. It is recommend if you have anxiety to cut down on the alcohol, or make it of limited use.

Good point Mariam, i always though drinking would soothe the anxiety and calm the nerves. But i shouldn't stop drinking right? just drink moderately?

Drinking excessively surely will not fix your problem, but if you have both anxiety and an excessive drinking alcohol problems, its better to resolve the alcohol problem first so you can deal with your anxiety.

Drinking alcohol only makes your anxiety condition worse, not only physical but also emotional and psychological, the other aspect, that you will not be able to seperate the hangover effect from anxiety.
