Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Public Forum

FROM YOUR DESCRIPTION IT APPEAR THAT YOU ARE HAVING ANXIETY PROBLEM. ANXIOUS PERSON TEND TO TAKE ALCOHOL AS IT DECREASES ANXIETY FOR SHORT DURATION BUT IN LONG TERM ALCOHOL INCREASES ANXIETY AND LEAD TO DEPENDENCE ON IT.

FOR TREATMENT IT IS BETTER TO VISIT NEARBY PSYCHIATRIST, AS YOU MAY NEED DRUG TREATMENT ALONG WITH COUNSELING.


I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Wish you Good Health.

Regards,
Dr. Ashish Mittal
