Ironically, the day after I research PAWS (post acute withdrawal symptoms), I experience finally get my first dose of PAWS in the form of heightened emotional sensitivity, self loathing, depression, and anxiety.  I knew what was happening so I took a Xanax.  While the Xanax didn't relieve the symptoms, I do believe that it keep my anxiety from escalating.  

Later the symptoms subsided when I spoke with a woman who I'm dating.  We ended up attending her friends 40th b-day party without any further symptoms.  After the party, she helped relieve some stress which helped a lot.
