A Fuel For Anxiety

A Fuel For AnxietyI used to think I was relaxing when I poured myself a few glasses of wine… It wasn’t until I stopped drinking that I realised what damage I had done to mental health. Trust me, if you are prone to anxiety, alcohol does you no favours, it just delays what you are feeling and you dealing with it, so when you do, it will feel like a mountain, rather than a hill.

On the good side, you can overcome it, and anxiety (and alcohol) don’t have to define you. If you’re having a hard day, don’t give up. Things will get easier x

Drinking alcohol is like pouring gasoline on your anxiety.⁠ ⁠

Anxiety is complex, but alcohol never helps. It may provide very temporary relief, but on the back end, it spikes cortisol, blood sugar, and triggers other biological responses that can contribute to feelings of anxiety and depression.⁠

What's your experience?⁠
