Anxiety and Alcohol and Me

Hi everyone! I am glad I found this place. I am a mother of three who has anxiety problems, and a husband who has alcohol problems. I am always worried that he is an alcoholic, but when I look at how much he actually drinks it is not that much. There is definitely a power struggle as he will go for a long time without drinking, but will have beer when under stress at work and hide it from me. He is terrible at hiding it, then I am furious when I find out. I have to go tend to my children! But I will be back!

I hope you can find some ways to deal with your anxiety. For me, I use yoga, music and taking long walks.

You can find support for yourself here, so take a look around and read and learn.

Welcome to SR! Besides having forums for alcoholics and addicts, we also have a mental health forum, and a sub-forum for anxiety issues. Do check it out. I hope we can help you. We also have a forum for friends and families of alcoholics, might find some good info there too.

Here's the anxiety forum link

Welcome to SR!!

As mentioned, we have a lot of forums you may want to check out. I seem to "fit" in quite a few, and have found support no matter where I go!

Hugs and prayers!
