Buckaroo> The food allergy thing I'd never heard of. How do you differentiate between anxiety and a food reaction since they are so similar? Any reading material you know of off the top of your head that you'd recommend?
Heh, I'm also in the process of getting the fucking nicotine out of my system. Hopefully I don't gnaw my arms off in the next 48 hours... That would still beat lighting up again though. In the wise and timeless words of the sage, "Fuck that shit!".

Oat straw tea can help rebuild jaggled nerves.
Certain essential oil scents have a calming effect as well, ones like lavender or ylang ylang.
How is your diet? Sometimes that can play a big part in moods.
For me nothing helps calm me down than getting my hands in the dirt gardening and watching things grow.

All kidding aside, that area could use some work. I know how to cook food that is both healthy and tasty, I just don't do it enough. Gardening is good. I enjoy it. Dealing with anything green and alive seems to help me too. Alas, I live in a city. I think that may be part of the problem since its so different from where I grew up. You should see my apartment though, I have plants in front of almost every window ( I leave a few open for my cat to perch on).

Saw live plants for sale on sunday at my nursery! haha but bought an orchid cause I've got 2 species of mesemenbrine (spell.?) containing plants already... That stuff is really good for anxiety, and with specific action in low doses. As is gardening, get an orchid or 2 for inside the house and work up a big patch of ground up somewhere and plant a veggie patch. Just for release and to take yer mind off shit. Get a fish tank... Yoga and breathing works well too...

it's important to use fresh plant material, or buy the extracts/tinctures from a known reputable vendor.
i'll have to look into the b-3 thing.

Any suggestions from the vast knowledge base here on anything to help with general anxiety? (anything other than POT that is).
Weed helps a little, but if the anxiety's already flairing then it just turns to paranoia...
Valium, Xanex, Adavan, etc... are all grand but get pretty pricey without insurance and they don't seem to grow to well when I plant them out back. Not to mention all the hassle they come with.
I have tried most anti anxiatics
I stay away from diazepines if I can help it, only take them when needed and too broke to buy L-Tryptophan, (it is not covered where I am.)
It beats St John' s Wort by a million miles, much easier than it, to take or leave when needed.
St John'' s wort has a severe rebound depression when you stop L-Tryptophan doesn' t, it feels real nice
