hi all I'm new to this so bear with me.I'm a middle aged man and have been anxious all my life. I've always had trouble sleeping due to worrying about what tomorrow will bring and stupidly resorted to having 2 or 3 cans of lager a night just to get me off to sleep. For the past 12 years I've been a successful logistics manager. In June this year I was made redundant and boy was that a shock, I'm now in a never ending spiral as I drink too much to calm my anxiety and then when I wake up my anxiety is so bad that I have another drink.I'll not even be able to cope with a job interview without the help of the demon drink and if I was lucky enough to be offered the job I would still need to top up all day and will eventually get fired. I feel I've let myself down my family and friends I just don't know how to get out of this spiral of self destruction. I don't believe that I'm addicted to alcohol but I am addicted to its short term release from this hell
