I believe ive been going down the wrong path the last few years. Beer seems to get rid of almost all of my symptoms while under the influence.(insomnia aside). I have no problem talking to people, starting conversations, expressing myself, or being on a stage alone. But now it seems i cant do anything without it. If i go out i find myself sitting alone in a corner, so to speak, and all i can think about is drinking so i can socialize. It works wonders but im starting to see its not worth it. Its becoming a burden on my health and my wallet. If only there were some medication that worked this good.
