DP/DR and alcohol

Just curious as to why my DP/DR goes through the roof the next day, if i drink the night before (ok, if i get drunk). Is this due to the GABA?
Granted it's not good to drink w/ any psychological conditions, and the relief from DR w/ alcohol is only temporary.
I actually developed my DR when i was drinking excessively (i think they call it alcoholism). Had a 8-10 panic attack, and was never the same the next day.
Anyway, just curious about alcohol and DP/DR. I assume anything that messes w/ chemicals in ur brain can make it worse (even the prescription ones :)

I beleive that many substances can triggers DP/DR.

Alcool for sure, cigarettes, sugar, coffee, all the bad stuff ;)
I get this alot, feed me 2 cokes with 3 cigarettes and I start sweating and get anxious for sure.
In fact, I beleive it affects everyone, even the *normal* people.
The days I smoke more than the others I'm more subject to DPDR.
