My friend what you are going through (and you may not want to hear this) are symptoms of withdrawl from alcohol. It presents most often as anxiety symptoms.

Congrats on banning the bottle...Keep it up and things will get much better!

The xanax will help but don't rely on it too much otherwise you will just change one addiction for another.

Another thing is to drink alot of water to help flush out your system, you can put fresh lemon juice in it to increase the detox effects but don't drink the seeds and only use the juice of one lemon over the course of 24 hours in aproximately 3-4 quarts of water.

Good luck
