Alcohol and Panic Attack Recovery 

By: Bradley Smith 


panic attackPanic disorders can be so frightening that you may be tempted to seek temporary relief from the attacks by drinking alcohol or taking other substances.

However panic attacks are something that you need to be in control of and you should not use alcohol or narcotics to control the effects of panic. Doing so can lead to different types of emotional damage and might produce physical complications, especially if you are on medication for your panic. You should think about the fact that a panic disorder needs to be addressed in the right way and you should not do anything that may cause problems for you later on down the road.

Panic attacks are very dangerous when you mix them with alcohol. You might get into more trouble when you are using it for the temporary relief of the symptoms of panic attack. If you are experiencing panic disorders you need to see your doctor and get the treatment to bring the attacks under control. You need to get help with your problems and not rely on the use of alcohol and other stimulants to get you feeling the way that you believe you need to feel.


Using alcohol and narcotics will ultimately hide your problems for a little while. However some people become alcoholics when they are using it all the time trying to hide the effects of a panic disorder. It is better to focus on taking care of your body and doing what is necessary for your mental health from the advice of your physician. You need to take the right precautions against alcohol and substance abuse when it comes to panic disorders.

If you find that you are having problems letting go of your panic and using alcohol and other drugs to relieve the stress of panic attack symptoms, it is best to speak with your health care professional about it. You need to get it all out in the open so that they know what is going on in your life. They will be able to recommend strategies to help you feel better and get you on the right track to adequately deal with your panic. Put it all behind you so that you can feel better and get on to the life that you deserve without being hooked up with alcohol.

You should make sure that you are setting up a support system of reliable and trustworthy friends to help you in your time of need. Be open to things that can help you and identify the things that are not going to be good for you, such as the overuse of alcohol and other substances. This will be crucial to help you deal with the day to day things and ultimately how you deal with your panic.
