With the recent worsening of my depression I have had an increase in alcohol consumption. I drink daily now, about a bottle of wine a day (when I'm not going out drinking). It seems like the only thing that makes me feel better when I'm not doing well. I feel sad, I reach for the bottle. I feel anxious, I do the same. It helps me relax. I know this isn't healthy and I want to stop but I feel myself, maybe not needing it, but wanting it badly to help ease over the rough patches.
I wouldn't say it's a problem quite yet but I definitely see the potential for it to turn into one and, having witnessed the effects of alcoholism on members of my family, I don't want to ever go down that road.
Does anyone have any advice on alternatives I could use, or methods to decrease my alcohol usage?
