I am not sure alcohol will help with the anxiety. But weed can be helpful. I have been doing CBD Canada though for the past couple of months.I have been suffering from crippling panic attacks for may years now ad the standard anti-anxiety medications are good and helpful ad all but they also made me feel kind of fuzzy around the edges and it didn't really help me in the long run.It turned out that it was completely safe and I started to use them and as a result it helped me a lot and besides, I had no health problems! So you can try them! I think you will find CBD a lot more useful then alcohol.
