Struggling with anxiety

I'm really anxious about war and it's affected my life, what should i do?

I'm really scared of nuclear war.
The chance of nuclear war is incredibly small. In Cold War 1 there were 5x as many nukes as now, but there was never a war.
Even Putin is scared of Mutually Assured Destruction. Russia nukes, NATO nukes back. Billions of people would die, and even Putin will not want that. It'll be a suicide mission for him. There will be no-one left to dictate to or control. It's perhaps the one thing Putin is scared of.
Obviously in the last few days things have happened that last week no-one thought was remotely likely but this situation is nowhere near as tense as Cold War 1 and no-one got nuked then. At max this will be a Cold War 2.

Tbh, i get what u mean. Just being scared of nukes destroying everything and everyone. But that the thing, everyone is. Even Putin himself. So i would just say that it is extremely unlikely that nukes will be used in this war as although Putin is an evil man, he isn't stupid enough to use nukes.
he defo has a lot to lose.
Seeing all your posts you seem like a really negative dark person so why bother commenting on advice threads when you're going to be giving none?
