I know smoking and drinking copious amounts of Mountain Dew caused my first panic attack. I was overstimulating my mind and body. But I also quit smoking anf caffeine cold turkey and started a low sugar diet as soon as I had my panic attack.
My question is: did I make my anxiety worse by combining the withdrawals into one powerful dose that I did permanent or long term damage to my mind? My anxiety has gotten a lot better, but I feel like I might have spared my nerves and mind some of the damage had I taken the process of quitting at a slower pace.
And has your panic attacks and anxiety turned anyone else into a health freak? Lol, I kinda consider it a blessing in disguise. A way of my body telling me, "Hey get your lazy butt up and do something!" Any help or advice would be appreciated.
