Looking for a bit of help, after weighing up my alcahol intake over the last few months i've cut down alot and was able to do so quite easily. I would probally class myself as a heavy drinker rather than an alcahaolic, (Which I have now changed, and am just drinking once a week).
For the last few weeks whenever I drink however it's causing mass anxiety. Recently this has now progressed to Depression for a few days after. In my life right now I definitely have nothing to be bothered about and it's not an underlying issue and I was never like this before my binge drinking years....
My question is, why when I drink to have I have these feelings for the next few days???? Is this because of my previous over indulgence of 10 years of heavy drinking that my body now just cant cope with a few pints?
I went cold turkey in Januray and got anxiety that bad coming off that I couldn't do it so went out and had a few drinks to get rid. Since then the anxiety has gone to be replaced by depression.
I wondered is this PAWS? or Acute Withdrawl and has anyone ever been in the same boat?
Was thinking about going cold turkey for a few months and riding the anxiety to see if I can come out the other side and see if I can return to the social aspect of drinking...
Any feedback or people that have gone through this would be most welcome... Cheers guys!
