> When I drink I feel so happy and uninhibited by anxiety, especially social anxiety. I know this is normal, but is that what benzos like Valium, Klonopin and Xanax make you feel like? If so, then they're the drug for me. How's this analogy, Benzo:Alcohol::SSRI:Marijuana ?
I've used all three (though it has been a millennium since I touched pot). Took xanax, then klonipin for anxiety/panic disorder. Alcohol does not give me the spacy feeling that I recall getting from pot. But a benzo keeps me much more in control then either of the other too, and I don't get silly, or feel dizzy, etc. I can and have taken a bezo before or while working, but a glass of wine makes concentrating hard. I love my wine, but P-doc once said if I had to choose between a benzo and alcohol, to go with the benzo and drink pop!
