The terrible anxiety that overcomes you after a night of heavy drinking- an all-encompassing fear that envelops you and makes you feel as though every single atom in the universe has turned to look at you with reproach. This anxiety is a bad side-effect of drinking which usually wears off after a good sleep, but can last for days! Best cure is to remember that it is only the alcopanic and not the end of the world!!
You: "Oh my God oh my God, what did I do? What have I done?! What are all these credit card receipts for? Everybody hates me, life will never be the same!!!"
Friend: "Don't worry, calm down, it's just the Alcopanic..."
