Just to add...assuming no escalation of drinking, mild alcohol drinking (especially red wine- although other studies suggest all types of alcohol)are associated with increased longevity. I've actually tried to drink a glass of red wine or beer/day for the possible health benefits but could never do it consistently. Alcohol (even 1 drink) does relax me a bit for a couple of hours or so but it also makes me a bit dizzy. I guess I'm an easy drunk. I don't think a beer/day would greatly improve one's anxiety. Myself I prefer benzos to alcohol for anxiety and always wondered if the prudent use of anxiolytic drugs like benzos would benefit one wrt longevity (especially since anxiety is associated with some increased risk of cardiovascular disease). I mean look at all the possible negative effects of alcohol on the body with high doses of alcohol and still mild drinking is usually associated with increased longevity.
