I came across this group and after reading the description it made me think about last year. Besides the pandemic there was a lot that was happening in my life. I used to drink socially and only on occasion but I found myself going through a lot of wine bottles and other things regularly each week. A lot of it was brought on by stress, anxiety, fears and depression. To the point where I would think about having a drink the moment I felt I was going to have a panic attack. However, since starting therapy and working on my intense anxiety, those thoughts have dissolved. I’m still a work in progress but I hope those who see this trying to work on their dependency know they aren’t alone.
