I'm kind of a stimulant connoisseur (or fiend, haha), and I agree completely with your idea that stimulants help anxiety through boosting confidence. Surely elevated mood can help too, because it makes you more positive to things and are more willing to try them (eg. a social situation you would normally avoid).

Some say that stimulants worsen anxiety, but I believe it is nervousness, aka. the jitters. I think maybe caffeine is the worst in this respect.
