The vicious circle of anxiety | one of the main reasons for my addiction to alcohol has to do with anxiety, fear and stress...and of course drinking way too much for years and years is obvisiously one of the main reasons for this anxiety 🙄. of course i denied that for years and fooled myself that i "deserved" a glass or 2 (what more than often ended with a glass or 10). .
last week my business partner came with some very stressful news, what increased my adrenaline level sky high. the former way to handle it would be probably 👉 take a glass, talk about it -> take another glass discuss about it -> take a few other glasses and go to the nightshop to buy more wine -> become both totally unreasonable in the discussion and make a tremendous fight -> wake up with a huge hangover+anxiousness+checking phone (especially the sent messages -deleting directly shameful ones-)+the stressy news. but...this time i just tried to read a book, felt asleep and woke up with exactly the same stressy news; but felt 1000 times stronger and more confident to solve the problems 💪😬..
