Hi I am 44 years old with 2 teenage daughters and am new to this forum and website. I have suffered with depression and been on medication for over 10 years now. I am currently on Sertraline 100 mg.. I have recently being diagnosed with generalised anxiety disorder aswell and suffer from panic attacks and low confidence/self esteem. I have recently begun a course of CBT therapy which I am finding really helpful. About 3 or 4 years ago I started drinking red wine and got into such a habit with it that I would be drinking 2 bottles 7 nights a week and I think my body just got that used to it that I didnt suffer hangovers. I decided 3 and a half weeks ago that enough was enough and for mine and my familys sake I needed to stop drinking. I since then have only drunk alcohol free lager.. But I am feeling very lethargic, having trouble sleeping, headaches and not much motivation to do anything other than what I have to. I have been to the doctors today for blood tests, but from your experiences how long will it take my body to get over the effects of alcohol. I dont want to start drinking again but am feeling really fed up. Any advice will be much appreciated.
