Anxiety due to quitting of alcohol.

Hi Takpa,

Quitting alcohol can increase your anxiety in the short term. Talk to your doctor if you have concerns about alcohol withdrawal symptoms. In the long run quitting alcohol can lessen your anxiety. As Alcohol is a depressant it can effect your mood and anxiety the next day and even days after drinking.
