I clearly remember that I started experiencing hangxiety, back in the mid 90’s, when I was in my mid 20’s, and I didn’t understand what the hell was going on. The thing is, that I have always been extremely shy and I suffer from social anxiety, so I used alcohol as a way to reduce both. But the next day, it heightened the feelings of anxiety that I already had, triggering depression and feelings of guilt or worthlessness.
A couple of weeks ago, one thing that I finally came to understand about my weekend binge drinking was, that because of my mental disorders, I was self-medicating, and in term I was just going in a vicious circle that was never going to end, unless I took action. Now, I can see that, but while I was in that circle, I couldn’t understand my destructive behavior. Not only that, but I haven’t had to deal with no hangxiety ever since.
With that said, I am Audi 5000 y’all!
