I will post again, I also have major social anxiety depression, issues. I have been prescribed controlled medication I.e. Xanax and kluonpin. Whim in and of itself can become an issue for an addiction person. I do practice deep breathing also walking fast. I was a functioning alcoholic for many years. Hit rock bottom that affected my home and personal relationships and trouble with employer. I think the best advise is not to go to a function if you’re not in a good place w your sobriety. I struggle daily to this day. Both sets of my grandparents were alcoholic as well as my father. I took my first drink when I was 12. Am 54 now.
