What are some of the most effective ways you've been able to deal with anxiety?

      “Smoke weed everyday.” Not actually bad advice, as it turns out. The devil's lettuce (as referenced by Loocifer themself xb) is highly anxiolytic and CBD is even prescribed for this now. If you can't because you're in a redneck state, get too heavily triggered by asthma, or some social/status quo-related issue, the full-spectrum CBD tincture or gummies by Charlotte's Web should still be an accessible option to you. The brand's namesake comes from a girl named Charlotte who used to have some crazy thing like 50 seizures a day, and they essentially cured her symptoms. I also, as cliché as it is, enjoyed CBT therapy and DBT for questioning my own anxiety attacks. Although, I must admit it's *much* more effective at stopping autistic spirals and meltdowns than General Anxiety-driven ones, as mine are highly catastrophising and, well—intelligent people are hard to convince against their own thoughts and intuition, so... 😮‍💨 Along this train of thought, check out the book Buddhism Without Beliefs. Changed my life.

      How I've been able to do it is well I'm unmedicated. So therefore I have them frequently. However I have learned how to systematically break it down in my head. Let me give you an example. So if I don't hear from my girlfriend I worry because I have separation anxiety so I systematically can break it down piece by piece. So I can tell my brain okay so if something happened her mom would've called me, she would've called me. So just try to systematically break it down. Imagine it like a Lego set you're gonna break it down piece by piece and put it away.

      For me I have found the smoking (🍃) allows my body to relax enough that I don’t trigger a panic attack, like I no longer feel so anxious and on edge. I’m not sure I’m explaining it well at all, or if you even smoke but that is a thing that helps me! (More so when I’m in my own space- because anxiety prevents me from going out into the world stoned)
