I'm thinking alcohol might trigger my SA . I seem worse after drinking but drink to not worry about it. Could be a vicious cycle? Anyone think this could be true? I used to be pretty OK in most situations, have a great job, lots of responsibility etc. But now I can barely go out alone and I'm drinking a lot, I'm thinking this may have something to do with it? I cant go on like this, and I need to go back to work soon.

Hello! Alcohol is a vicious cycle alright. And you're right again, you can't go on like that. If you want to cut down you have to be prepared to take a hangover in your stride and find something to take your mind off the boredom. Alcohol withdrawal can be brutal if you let your drinking get out of control.

Hey, welcome to SAS. That's an interesting thought. I only started drinking in September, and I've been feeling more anxious since then. Drinking helps me while I'm intoxicated, but maybe it does have some sort of horrible after-effect. Best of luck!
