    How long have you been off the drink?

      Without a full picture of your situation, it's hard to say (has your face been red for years? is it only red when you are drinking too much? etc. etc). If you are not drinking and feel better, and you feel that you look better without the red face then it has to be a good thing. smile

      Your anxiety is likely to return with the drinking each time. Alcohol causes anxiety.

      You are doing really well! smile

      I am just a bit worried the now Paul as for weeks i either have a pounding heart or racing heartbeat. I went for ecg, 24 hour ecg and treadmill test all came back fine but they scanned my heart as they thought it might be swollen.

      Recently i the heart beating fast or pounding has subsided so not sure if it is down to the stopping alcohol or it was aniexty but since my body is really cold especially my feet i was worried that there was maybe a problem with my circuallation? Although it could be my aniexty.

      Anxiety is common in people who drink too much. It can appear to get worse when you stop drinking although that is normally because your senses are not numbed by the alcohol as much of the time.

      Alcohol itself OR alcohol withdrawal can cause many symptoms. The longer you stay off alcohol, the more of them will disappear but you should see your doctor about any that persist.

      You will still be here. I see people in a terrible state and who look as if they won't last 3 days when I get to them, 2 days into a detox, they feel much better, look much better and are relaxed.

      You have done it without a medical alcohol detox so you are struggling a little more with the anxiety than those who get the added benefot of the anxiety relief given by the Librium which is used for alcohol detox, but your anxiety WILL subside as you you keep away from alcohol. Any that is left after a couple of weeks without drinking can be dealt with in other ways but I think you will be pleasantly surprised by how much more relaxed you feel without the booze smile

      Don't panic about your heart. I had a heart attack almost three years ago at age 47. That happened in the February and I was playing tennis and winning by the June. They can perform miracles with hearts these days smile
