    I've had problems for a while now, but I am too anxious/worried to talk to anyone. Grandfather was an alcoholic.

    I'm sorry to hear how things are for you right now
    It doesn't mean you will be an alcoholic because grandad was
    Well done for admitting it's becoming a problem
    Please please find the courage to ask for help
    There are so many places you can turn for help without any judgement
    If help from uni isn't for you you may find some centres in your local area. The doctors may be a start or maybe try your local Salvation Army for example if you're in a big town

    When you say 'problems' can you be more specific?

    Mostly self esteem issues and bad social anxiety, I have taken whiskey with me into Uni on a few occasions.

    I've been trying to pluck up the courage for a while now, but I just can't imagine how I would put my issues across to someone without sounding pathetic.

      So go in and just sound pathetic. This may sound iffy but seeking help is hard for that very reason, hence the reason you need to "pluck up courage" as you say. Once you take the initial step, it gets a bit easier.

      There is nothing pathetic about your issues or how they will come across. My advice would be that if the first place you visit makes you feel that way it's wrong for you. Quickly find another but please don't give up
