    Alcohol can aggravate anxiety

    Alcohol is only a temporary solution to a long term problem. Those who have used alcohol in connection with anxiety, state that it helps them getting rid of it but in fact they are only running away from their problem rather than taking the bull by the horns.

    The usage of alcohol can calm down the nerves of the concerned patient but it can create several other complications like heart problems. It has also been observed that such patients show a tendency towards violence and rough behavior going to the extent of criminal activities.

    While alcohol is not the source of anxiety, but it can certainly aggravate the condition of the patient. Of course, alcoholism is the most easy resort of the depressed, but this is the time when you are in need of social interactions like never before, and to find comfort with your family and friends, whoever you trust. So the next time anxiety hits you, try making it to the therapist, or even better your home, rather than gulping spirits in the bar.
