I find alcohol exacerbates my anxiety...it causes me to feel out of sorts, with in turn makes me edgey. Not to mention that I can't get a solid sleep after drinking, so I always feel completely jittery for the entire day following. Alcohol is certainly not an answer to anxiety. At least, not a correct one.

Absolutely false. It may seem like it does, but you may just be so impaired that you don't realize you are anxious, or don't remember being anxious.

Completely false. However, people may seem to "loosen up" while under the influence but where alcohol is a depressant it does cause you to become very anxious.. usually the following day. I do not recommend alcohol or recreational drugs as self-medication. It usually makes things worse. Take care.

That is defintely a myth. Alcohol dosent cure anxiety it may make you less anxious while you are under the influence of alcohol but thats just temporary so its not a cure. Defintely wouldnt recommend turning to alcohol or illegal drugs to deal with your anxiety. In my opinion it will just cause bigger problems.
