    Hey Bobby. I think i have had similar issues with the feeling like dying, and the panic attacks. I had gone without them for long stretches, and think I am out in the clear, but  then they come back. I find the stress of a new challenge can bring them out, or big change triggers the same part of the brain. Stag and do might have been a trigger? The attacks have made me very aware of what I put in my body, and I have gave up pot and I am very careful with my booze now. Haven't done shrooms or coke in years.  mostly out of fear of where my mind would go. I hate the idea of meds, so I am trying the opposite. Meditate, loving people, future related thoughts centred around my goals. Also, I find this message board helps a bit. I spend some time on here and I feel less alone and like I am confronting the issue. It's important to note that I have an issue with talkign to people about my panic attacks. Best wishes!

    The cocaine comedown can highly contribute to what you are feeling. I remember days i thought i was dying too, back in the days. Just give it a day or 2 and you'll be back to normal. Also, stop with the cocaine, it's a horrible deug (especially for people who suffer panic attacks).

    Hi bobby

    This is classic I could have written this post


    I used to get the same feelings of panic

    Anxiety , I'm dying scenario all the time

    And I would also swear I wouldn't do it again lol

    But time and time again I would find myself

    Panicking , I'm dying scenario

    This happened to me all the time especially

    If I'd not slept and continued drinking

    There would come a certain time the next day when it would start it was hell

    It seems there's an illusion when you don't get sleep that triggers anxiety all made the worse by drinking and in your case even worse by dabbling with a class a

    I promised myself that there wouldn't be a next time as I wasn't suffering another episode , but at a young age it would happen again & again , it's as if I was waiting on it happening I knew it was gonna


    Sometimes it was worse than others depending how much drink / sleep I had

    Eventually I realised this was a bad problem and only drank occasionally

    Thus avoiding a full blown panic episode

    And also getting atleast some sleep

    Regards daz
