I'm getting tired of this cycle i've been in for the last year. I used to be a heavy drinker, out of boredom, but quit a few years ago for about 6 months. After that I started drinking alot, though not as much as in my past, and I wouldn't ever get drunk unless I was going out with friends. I've been drinking a bit more now though since I moved and have no job. I can quit at times and not drink for weeks, but then I'll go out with a friend and get hammered. That wouldn't be bad but sometimes I'll have a couple beers the next day to make me feel better. Sometimes I'd just keep drinking slowely throughout the day.This now leads to anxiety attacks for some reason. Then when I feel an attack coming on I'll have a few more beers to get rid of the feeling. It works, but I don't need it. I can do it myself, and have before in the past. Well, I just thought I'd share this with you.
