I am really struggling lately with the PTSD (and the depression and anxiety that go along with it). I was abused/neglected as a child and teenager and buried A LOT of shit. I have used drinking as my primary coping method for over 30 years and now that I am removing alcohol and weed from my arsenal, I am REALLY struggling with all the muck from the past that I never really faced or dealt with. The depression is so bad lately that I don't want to do anything other than lay in bed and cry all day. Any advice from others who can relate would be very greatly appreciated!!

I have been drinking for so many years now that I cannot even remember who I am without alcohol. This poison has stolen years or my life and large parts of my soul, and I am SO ready to turn the page and start a new chapter. I hope to get to the real root of the problem, WHY I drink (besides the fact that alcohol is an extremely addictive substance of course), and learn new coping skills that don't involve just getting loaded. I am looking forward to getting to know a new, better, sober me, and to learn what hobbies I might have (other than drinking). Also looking forward to meeting and connecting with others who can relate to my story. I know we can do this!! :)
