Do you guys think drinking can possibly be stopping me from recovering? I don't drink every night just socially when I'm out with friends. It pretty much helps me to relax and get out of my head. I had DP once before back in 2009-2010 and I went cold turkey from alcohol for about 6 months. When I started drinking and hanging out with friends again it really helped me to get out of my shell and make a 100 percent recovery.

The only reason why I got DP again is because earlier this year I smoked marijuana again and bam the feelings came back. I had completely forgotten how DP felt and that marijuana had caused it. Biggest mistake of my life. Anyway please share your thoughts on drinking. Thanks!

At the start it was a big no from me, was causing my own misery, the next day I was even more DP'd. Doesn't do this anymore, so I guess you will know if it causes anxiety or intensifies your DP

Once the alcohol wears off you'll typically feel worse than before you started drinking. It's not healthy, period and DP is no exception. I would avoid it.

If alcohol lowers your inhibition to the point you think you can smoke marihuana, then it's time to give it up.
