Anxiety and Drugs

If you struggle with anxiety, you are prone to drug dependency. If you are someone who has no desire to smoke a joint, you might be tuning out now. But that's just one type of drug. Alcohol is a drug. A very common, widely used drug. 
Anxiety isn't fun. It isn't a pleasant experience, and there can be a desire to quickly, easily make it go away. Many people turn to alcohol for relief. It's understandable. If I hadn't made the decision years ago to avoid alcohol, I would probably do it too. And I would also likely be an alcoholic today. People with anxiety are alcoholics waiting to happen. Alcohol is the easy way out, ​but in the end it just causes more problems.
