Yes. Mineral deficiencies themselves can cause stress, specifically magnesium.
And I believe drinking alcohol leads to a loss in magnesium.
There is really nothing good that can come from drinking. You really should stop.
Do you have an exaggerated startle response? If you do, you nervous system is sympathetic dominant. You can't always feel "stress", but hyper-vigilance is a sure sign that your nervous system thinks you are.
