Essential tremor treatment?

I have essential tremor. Which in short is the involuntary tremor of hands, arms, legs, head, etc... I know benzodiazepines are usually prescribed for this prescription however I have noticed another thing that I get an extremely positive effect from.

I noticed opiates almost stop my tremors completely and slow my heart and body to a normal speed.

Let me know what's going on here. Not sure if I'm onto something or not. Advice and comments please

    Some causes...

    caffeine, found in coffee, tea and fizzy drinks

    not getting enough sleep

    stress

    There's evidence that anything that reduces anxiety can help. Some people have a glass of wine for the same effect

    "The mechanism of tremor reduction by alcohol is unknown."
