Author discusses how alcohol and substance abuse will not take away a person’s fears

April 8, 2009-Pittsburgh, PA- Your fears, anxieties, and other problems have the best of you and you don’t know where to turn for help. At some point you feel totally helpless as you struggle each day. In these cases, some people will use alcohol or other substances to feel better.

Stanley Popovich, author of 'A Layman's Guide To Managing Fear' understands that fear and anxiety are very common with people who deal with addiction. Many people use alcohol or other substances to take away their problems and fears. That is a mistake. In the short run, alcohol or drugs might make you feel better, but in the long run these addictions will only make things worse. Alcohol and substance is not the answer to dealing with your fears and anxieties.

The National Institute of Mental Health reports that approximately 1 in every 5 adults suffer with the anguish of a fear-related disorder. Here are some quick facts:

· 18.8 million American adults will suffer from depression this year
· 2.3 million American adults will struggle with Bipolar disorder this year

· 2.4 million American adults will experience a panic disorder this year
· 3.3 million American adults will be treated for OCD this year
· 5.2 million American adults will experience Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder this year
