Can drinking wine help me with my anxiety?
Asked 2 years ago
People often say to have a drink in anxious situations, but is there any truth in this? Can drinking alcohol, or wine specifically, help reduce anxiety levels?

Although the effect is short-lived, drinking alcohol can reduce fears and distract you from your troubles. Alcohol can also make you feel relaxed, less shy and give an overall boost to your mind. However, it is important to state that after a while, you will go back to the way you were feeling before taking the alcohol, so it is better to handle the root cause of your anxiety rather than suppressing it for a while with alcohol.
