    Hi
    yes alcohol affects our whole body, and also our mind as it acts as a depressant and can often leave us feeling very down the next day. That said however, for a man im sure some one will correct me if im wrong its 21 units a week is the recommended maximum, a unit being a single measure of spirits, a small glass of wine or a half pint of most beers although some stronger may have more. They say its best to spread this out over the week and to try and have 2 to 3 alcohol free days a week. It doesnt sound as if your intake is excessive, its probably mostly confined to the weekend though, and apparently any more than 4 drinks in the one go for a man is binge drinking (3 for a woman). Alcohol drunk in moderation and responsibily is ok, and once in a while a blow out on a special occasion is also ok. I dont think you have to worry at this level about the physical affects, but perhaps when your anxiety is bad, mentally its maybe not such a great idea. Having said that,it hasnt stopped me at time and im sure there are plenty of us on here who at times have taken a bit too much... and probably will again.
    Hope this helps
