In 2017, scientists reviewed more than 63 studies examining the relationship between alcohol and anxiety levels.
As a result, it was found that, despite the apparent positive effect of small doses of alcohol, including relaxation, euphoria, mood improvement, and others, excess alcohol intake negatively affects a person’s mental health.
The thing is that alcohol negatively affects the neurotransmitters in the brain that respond to a healthy psyche.
Studies have shown that reducing alcohol consumption has a positive effect on depression and anxiety.
Scientists also point out that avoiding excessive alcohol consumption increases self-esteem, quality of life and social significance.
