Welcome to JustAnswer Health...and thank you for your question. I am a verified Expert and am delighted to help you today.

1 Would a SSRI be good for anxiety, if so which one? Yes, this varies greatly person to person. Doctors will usually try you on one, if it is not as effective as you'd like, another will be tried, and so on, until the "right one" for you is found.
2 How long is needed to become addicted to Xanx? A week or so? This varies person to person and can begin in as little as a week
3 And which ppl are likely to have seuziures when coming off booze? Some Alcoholics who have been dependent on alcohol, while some will never have a seizure from withdrawal, others will, this is again, very variable, person to person.
4 Once someone is physically dependent on a substance, booze or benzos and they go through withdrawl, if they use again will they immediately be physically addicted again? The instance of addiction is much greater once a person has been addicted in the past...so yes, if a reformed alcoholic drinks ONE drink, they can fall right back into the addiction, as can a person with a history of Xanax addiction.
