Oh yeah Carolee silly me to forget, the marijuana started the panic attacks in high school, only when I was too high did I get them but they came then, slowly started coming when I was sober soon after high school. Drugs do change your neurotransmitters I am afraid, what is a panic attack when you are high can come when you are sober one fine day after that, good looking pointing that out.
> hey guys -
> it really is amazing how it seems that the majority of us who are writing in have had some drug issues in the past that seems to have brought about our anxiety/depression/panic/BP. i too used to do speed, acid, ecstasy, cocaine, and pot. my last time parting w/coke brought about my anxiety/panic attacks...which was about 15 yrs ago. i had stopped everything at that point, been on many prescription drugs for my problems, but nothing seems to help. iam trying to "natural" route.

> this totally sucks.
> i cant drink like i used to either, and when iam hung over, iam definately more sensitive to having panic attacks. i am shaky, heart pounding, can't go out of the house, talk on the phone...
> its comforting to know others feel like this, but on the same hand, its so overwhelming to live like this!
