    Marijuana actually has something in it that can chemically cause anxiety, which is why it makes some people paranoid, and can even trigger schizophrenia in susceptible people.

    So that's not you repressing anything. It's actually probably the result of smoking an excess of shit weed.

    There are different kinds of marijuana, too, there are kinds that don't make you anxious like that.

    Alcohol doesn't make me anxious, really. It is a mood amplifier for me. I either get more happy, or very depressed. I don't drink when I'm down, it's a bad thing.

    THIS.

    Xanax puts most people to sleep, it used to make my ex susceptible to fits of borderline psychotic violence.

    I've also heard of people who are put to sleep by caffeine where as it wakes most people up.

    Supposedly this is also why ritalin would calm people with ADHD down.

    repression = pushes threatening thoughts(which are in consciousness ofc because you are aware of them) back to the unconsciousness. how is this a vague term?

    post traumatic stress disorder is a good example of repressed thoughts affecting you later

    Try being an a very unhealthy apathetic mood and then resort to drinking.

    From experience, the result is not good.

    I didn't stop drinking for no reason after all. :P

    I know what it is. The idea of repression seems vague to me, not the term.

    Assuming that I would be the one repressing something, how would I be aware of that?

    Yes, alcohol consumption increases positive mood/feeling or anxiety levels, depending. Usually, in my case I've noticed that a not so pleasant mood increases exponentially with the amount of alcohol I've consumed. Basically, the more I drink, the more sensitive I become. But this isn't unique to me, it's basically that way with anyone (from my observation/understanding).
