When I drink, the world doesn't seem so bad, people are less scary, I'm less shifty eyed and care a lot less about what other people are doing, I don't need to wear a hat to conceal my face and eyes, I don't care about the positioning of my eyelids and whether my contact lenses are making my eyes look too watery, and I'm making all sorts of sensible future plans.
The anxiety relieving effects of alcohol are pretty much the main reason why I drink more than I should, or it's pretty much the only reason I drink. How do I get rid of constant anxiety without becoming an alcoholic? What are the treatment options, and how well do they work?
