    I have been known to imbibe a bit too much at times. This last weekend for example. And I paid dearly for it. But it's right up there with Klonopin as far as how well it helps anxiety. I can drink most people I know under the table.

    I seem to be one of the weird people who actually has an increase in anxiety when drinking ><

    I do. It has become a real problem.

    I rarely go to any type of social event where there are many people there. Two times over the past couple years I have went to parties where I was very nervous about going. And I decided that in order to fit in I would have to get drunk. When I'm drunk I am outgoing and talkative. But on both the occasions I drank, I got completely wasted and it was stupid. I do not, obviously, know when to stop. Therefore, I'm not putting myself in that situation anymore.

    I never do it to alleviate anxiety directly because I've found that although alcohol is anxiolytic for me, it sometimes causes my depression to flare up pretty badly. I really only drink when I'm hanging out with my friends. When I drink with them, I ALWAYS drink too much
