ems16ems16 scotlandPosts: 27 Boards Initiate
I need to stop drinking, but it’s just hard I’m too young to be doing this, i spend all my money tonight wasn’t that bad but still I usually end up byself at the end of the night drunk and doing stupid stuff, I want to stop but it’s hard

    Hiya @ems16

    I also used to drink way too much, I eventually managed to slow down when I was feeling a bit better mentally.

    I think where it gets difficult is when you start to use it as a way of coping with how you're feeling, do you think you're drinking for this reason?

    Are you getting any support? I do know the feeling you're talking about. Sometimes when I feel like shit I want to drink to forget it..but I think through time Ii've learned that drinking actually makes it worse. I try to only drink for fun now and not to drink by myself too often. 

    Have you thought about seeing your GP?

    nope and what’s a GP?

    Your GP is your general practitioner i.e. your doctor. If you need any support with your mental health, or with alcohol, they may be a good place to start.
