I am in a really complicated situation. I've just graduated in engineering and am now living with parents back home. I have always been really anxious and struggled with anxiety during my entire academic life. The main reason why I started drinking was to hide this anxiety. I began drinking a LOT! to make it go away but I guess this had a massive counterproductive effect. I began to be drunk so much that I lost all my friends and now when I try to make new friends I feel like I have to be really drunk to socialise and then I make something stupid that I never see the person again.
I really think I have a big problem and am not sure how I can stop this and make me some friends (healthy way). The last few days I started blacking out on busses and getting lost during the night after clubbing. My parents are seriously mad at me. I told them yesterday that I have a problem and they simply stopped talking to me. I tried therapy last year but that didn't help. I'm not sure whether the therapist wasn't good or something but I didn't see any change. I don't think I can carry on this way anymore - It's been nearly 5 years where I have this awful habit. I have lost so many stuff because of the way I drink before I go out. My friends literally left me and all I got is my family. The only people I can talk to.
I feel guilty. I don't think I can cope with this lifestyle anymore. I am so tired. Should I seek help again to solve this anxiety issue ? Thanks
