I realize that I need to change this


Relying on drinking around friends to be able to deal with my anxiety. Without it, it's too much to handle so I think the best choice is that I'm just not going to spend time with them anymore until I am somewhat better.

Yeah alcohol to relieve anxiety is a double edged sword, like any drug maybe ok used very sparingly, it seems like a miracle cure at first but it can sucker you in & if it does will make things worse in the long run.

Keep in mind that choosing to isolate yourself is not good for you either as it can make your SA worse. Ideally if you can, I would say work your way up and built up the confidence by spending time with people you are most comfortable being with.
