I've been on medication for anxiety and depression for nearly six years and have been having increasing issues lately with also self-medicating with alcohol, which is a short term relief but then in turn causes more anxiety and depression every time I overdo it, which has become more often lately. I obviously know the solution is to focus on an extended period of sobriety, but that seems to be easier said than done for me. I now have a plan in place for how to commit to sobriety indefinitely but I am curious if anyone else out there has struggled with a similar situation? And if so, do you have any tips or words of advice? I'm really struggling lately, so any tips will help.
