I know I certainly drank to escape. It 'seemed' better to just get so out of it that the problems would disappear.

Of course, that only happens until I woke up, still had the same problems along with massive hangovers and self-loathing.

Like you, I had a very hard time asking for help. I thought it was a sign of weakness (I can handle it, yeah right). I found that asking for help is a sign of strength - to reach out, share our experience and receive feedback and support from those who know exactly how we feel...it was the best thing I ever did.

Maybe stop and ask yourself what things are so different that's making you feel less positive?

And by all means, keep posting and sharing - no doubt many of us have been there.
