Is this a recent event or the same one from the other thread?
I think those feelings of anxiety and paranoia are common - especially if you've been a drinker for some years.
The phenomenon of alcoholic kindling means our withdrawals tend to get worse & worse over time.
Fortunately I've never had to deal with any of that since I stopped drinking.
If you haven't already now would be a great time to quit. You need never feel this way again HideMe
