"The Fear" is the sense that you have done yourself some lasting damage after a night of drinking. It's symptoms are:

- A feeling that you are going to die soon (and not just due to other hangover symptoms);
- A sense that people or organizations are out to get you;
- Angst that you may have offended, inappropriately touched or physically attacked someone the night before;
- Foreboding about the next time you meet the people or return to the bar where you degraded yourself the previous night.

The fear is often accompanied by "The Remorse" where you are also genuinely ashamed and sorry for the way you have behaved, as well as simply frightened for the sake of your own wellbeing.

That feeling that accompanies one when they wake up after a night of heaving drinking, or in the midst of a psychedelic voyage. The individual has an irrational fear of nothing in particular, and often feels worthless and lowly, as if everything they have done has been a lie, and they are a horrible person. The Fear can affect anyone.

Dude Bill got so fucked up last night. He woke up this morning and was talking about how he never wanted to drink again, and that he was going to go to church to pray for redemption from all the bad things he as done, which is a lot.

Gail: Yeah man he's got the fear. He said that last weekend and and the one before that, and before that...

The Fear is something we all experience after a hard night on it when you wake up the next day, with no knowledge of what happened, terrified of who you spoke to, what you said & what you did. Then whilst searchin... See more through your sent texts you feel even worse and want to hide under your duvet and never come out...sometimes it results to tears. In short- the worst feeling in the world ...ever.
The Fear- Crazy night...wake up... realise you have sent texts to everyone you know, even those you havent spoke to for years talking the biggest pile of crap every spoken. Followed by flashbacks of sheer evilness.

paranoia/ panic caused by marijuana use
origin: William S Burroughs, LETTER FROM A MASTER ADDICT ON DANGEROUS DRUGS: "Cannabis Indica (hashish, marijuana). --The effects of this drug have been frequently and luridly described: disturbance of space-time perception, acute sensitivity to impressions, and flight of ideas, laughing jags, silliness. Marijuana is a sensitizer, and the results are not always pleasant. It makes a bad situation worse. Depression becomes despair, anxiety panic. I have already mentioned my horrible experience with marijuana during acute morphine withdrawal. I once gave marijuana to a guest who was mildly anxious about something ("On bum kicks" as he put it). After smoking half a cigarette he suddenly leapt to his feet screaming, "I got the fear!" and rushed out of the house."
