ACCEPTING ANXIETY, Part 2/2: Can Anxiety Be Good? | Thomas Sanders
Panic attacks are not fun, and once the relationship between alcohol and panic attack experiences are truly understood by a person, it will become apparent what they must do. Everyone has different limits, and different alcoholic thresholds. The key is to understand where your limit is and to not step over it.

Relaxation technique is another panic attack treatment that helps the patient to cope with stress – stress being one of the main causes of panic attacks.
