    Xanax will help you to calm down your anxiety. Celexa has the chemical you brain need to control your anxiety and make you life normal.

    Alcohol, caffeine, sodium, sugars... etc will increase your anxiety.

    I don't know who told you, that drinking is life, some people have the wrong idea about enjoying and having fun in life.

    Alcohol doesn't make you happy, the happiness is on you, is your decision to dance, smile, have fun without alcohol, be yourself.

    27 years old, you should be thinking more and how to take care your health for the comming years, rather than drinking, and stop medication prescribed by a doctor, you think like my 12 years old son.

    This forum is for people dealing with anxiety, we need help from others really bad, and would like to read some advises or personal experiences.

    We had accepted our anxiety problem, some may need some help about their feelings and are scared.

    Sorry to tell you but you are in the wrong forum, I was looking for celexa s sides effects and combination of celexa and xanax, I had some hopes here, but you just want to party.

    Sorry again and thanks.

    Nelly, if I were you, I really would consider making appts. with a good therapist... I believe he/she could help you with the answer as to WHY you want to start drinking again... I am not criticizing you...I am sorry if it sounds that way... You ARE reaching out for help and advice... but this is a tricky subject... and you need a totally objective view point and advice from someone who can actually help you through this. Please...would you consider this?
