Looking for advice or guidance as to whether to stay at university or not.

I have been thinking about this for a few weeks now, even though I am only half way through my first semester.

When I applied for uni, I decided to take a gap year as I did not feel ready to leave home and go straight into studying again, especially after I found my A-levels to be very difficult and stressful.
During this gap year, all I did was work, and soon realised that I probably should have gone to uni and everything would have been fine.
So, I moved country, came to university, but am still very unsure whether to stay or not. I miss my life back home as well as not being sure if this is the right career choice for me.
I enjoy my course, although I am finding it difficult, due to the fact that I find it interesting, however i cannot see myself working in this sector in the future.

I am an over thinker and am worried that which ever decision I make, it will be the wrong one.

Sleepless nights and many tears later, I have decided to turn to The Student Room for help.

Any help is appreciated.
