Alcohol

My story in 2016 I remember it was almost thanksgiving and that’s was the beginning of my nightmare because I use to drink so much alcohol daily and I thought it made me happy because I was able to go do whatever I wanted to do without any fear and me doing me not even thinking about how I really was looking like a crazy drunk to my kids and mom and family and friends but it didn’t make me stop made me want more because I didn’t think I had a problem so I continue doing what I thought was helping me to live my life to the fullest was actually killing me slowly and making all my mental illness worse made me out of a bad person and made me very sick I was struck in a dark room lying in bed scared to eat drink or sleep I thought my only option was suicide I didn’t see no other way out the darkness I was in and today am very blessed I didn’t choose deaf I choose to live it was hard and all that time I didn’t even know I really could had died because I was withdrawing from alcohol and didn’t even know it at the time so happy for this app and all the wonderful people I get to talk too so I don’t have to always be in my own head all the time I appreciate y’all thanks 🙏🏾

Thank you for sharing. I can relate to your story. I too used alcohol as a coping mechanism. Although I do still like an occasional social, I completely agree you, ultimately it just makes things worse. I am so grateful I found the support here. Anxiety sucks and without understanding and community it can lead you down a dark path for sure. Keep going it gets better. The best thing I heard someone say recently is there is always to be grateful for. I say this often to myself now and trying to focus on the positive and help other to.

Take care

I am prescribed a very small does of Xanax which I find helpful. I exercise almost everyday, makes me feel good physically and mentally. Also I love calming music such as nature sounds and piano music. I use YouTube to do videos, yoga meditation it helps and it’s free.

Amen awesome job
