Regarding approach anxiety and the approach anxiety challenge, would it hurt your progress to use anti-anxiety drugs and supplements during the drills? I'm thinking that your body has to experience anxiety during the AA drills in order for the drills/exposure therapy to work.

I'm thinking about substances like Phenibut, Propranolol, Kratom, etc...

I would say you should do the vast majority of approaches without any substances at all and just accept and embrace the anxiety. I have tried phenibut and it can be good once in awhile but shouldn't be used often.

I've done approach sessions on kratom, molly, nicotine, and no-sleep (yes I'm considering this a drug). But I did these all after I got over approach anxiety.

but as @SamJ_ said, I recommend embracing the anxiety and going sober. You're right that you need to do the drills (and approach) while experiencing real anxiety.

doing approach sessions on drugs is more of a fun thing if you want to fuck around but I'd only do it sparingly and if you're e.g. going with friends.

Agreed.
While using state enchanters occasionally is fine, the vast majority of this needs to be done sober.

How is Propranolol? Haven't heard of it before
The first time you quit, it's hard. The second time, it gets easier. The third time, you don't even have to think about it.

It requires more willpower to put on your clothes and walk out the front door than the actual workout itself
