I'm: Alcohol will relieve anxiety in the short-term. However it is likely to make your anxiety condition worse in the long-term. I suggest you see your family doctor to discuss treatments for your anxiety. These can take many forms, including benzodiazepines antidepressants and counseling. Newer antidepressants are very effective for many people in relieving anxiety symptoms. Hope this helps.
