Can wanting, envy and coveting cause anxiety?


I ask because I have a problem with wanting things. I am not materialistic yet I am always wanting new things or what others have. My mother is the same way, yet hers goes way deeper then mine. She suffered from anxiety most of her life, and I just started getting anxiety and panic attacks when I was 17 (now 24)... I don't live in a stressful environment nor even have a job (due to neck pain and anxiety) so... Could my anxiety be stemming from wanting? I want to stop wanting!!!! I hate it!

    what a dumbo I am, the last one should be, of course, 'you want something...'

    Sorry I used suffer instead of anxious each time.
