people who never used may suffer from anxiety too. You must create a belief system against the anxieties. And play safe till you are confident about your well being. Addiction is itself a big anxiety.

The anxiety is because you don't yet believe that you can live without your drug. The future seems hard and uncertain. Thankfully, once you have some sober time in these fears will dissipate. You will see that you can do it and that will be that. St John's Wart, an herb available at the drug store, or an antidepressant prescribed by your doctor will help.
