Alcohol and Other Drugs

Answered 9 months ago

Who here is using alcohol and other drugs as a coping mechanism. Rightly or wrongly people fall back into old habits when stressed.

I for one have been using Cannibals (cones) the last week or two and it's been a way of escaping the constant media barrage.

Anyone else in the same boat? what are you using that you normally wouldn't?

Have an answer?

I don’t need anything to cope. I do try to get out once every two days to go for a walk and I buy some food to make dinner and lunches.

I’m not a huge drinker but Ive been having a couple of vodkas most nights once my husband gets home from work. It doesn’t get me drunk of course but it does relax me a little.

For some this will sound wrong. I went out for a cig this morning (only 2 a day) and my husband's pipe was out. I mixed a little bowl and had it. I've had a little buzz all morning. Parenting has been a dream. Husband is in control but it feels nice to be so relaxed

I'm just drinking more coffee. More because it's my one treat I can sit & don't have to share rather than any physical effect.

I'm quite dull on the alcohol/drugs front. I don't really like either & I'm glad considering how much alcohol costs!

I haven’t been using alcohol because I’m breastfeeding and drugs I never use anyway but I have been escaping way too much into my phone. I really wish I didn’t right now
