I have been actually drinking heavily since march 2020. I have depression and social anxiety so I had a emotional breakdown when people criticised my introvert lifestyle and accused me of being anti social at work. Now it’s worse because I’m still stuck on furlough and I had to move back to living with arrogant family again.

Drinking without stopping a day, I’m I ok? Do you think it’s ok???

no way drinking heavily can be very bad for u.
u should really be careful and find someone to talk to abt your problems it wouldn't make u feel much better.

If you cant stop, that's borderline alcoholism. Go and speak to someone as you may end up giving yourself permanent damage from alcohol.

Plus alcohol acts as a depressant, to use it to drown out emotions is never the answer.

Your Liver: aM i oK?!1!1!1!1!1

But srsly tho look after yourself, getting wasted everyday is very bad for your liver and you could get alcohol poisoning.

If you're having trouble controlling how much you drink go see your Gp or something for alcohol addiction.
Stay safe

Alcohol is a depressant so if your drinking to deal with your emotions you should go speak to someone to help find healthier coping techniques. You can always pm as well if you have no one to talk to 😁

Yes alcohol is very damaging and not the right solution. Get some professional help and face your family tell them how you feel and they might change. Damn what people think about you the fact that they're judging you on how your anxiety just shows they not worth listening to. Be more happy with yourself and you'll see it'll be a lot better. :hugs:

Definitely not okay.
Please seek help, before you get to the point of no return.
You will only live to regret it in time if you carry on this slippery slope.

I just think my life is over

Maybe it’s the reason I can’t stop drinking, it’s my body telling me something

Well that's a very negative mind set.
Start thinking positive, seek help and kick start your recovery, you have got to want to do it.

Your probably not the only one, but if you cannot stop then you have an addiction. Its like if you cant stop smoking you have an addiction. You need to at least try and wean yourself off of it. Not only that, you need to also change your mindset. You seem to focus on the negative which reinforces your drinking. If you can try and do that to start with you can come out of this ok. If you still cant give up then you will need to get professional help and the sooner you can, the quicker you can come out of this.

No.
Binge drinking every night for five weeks is very bad for your state of mind and health.

You need to reduce your dependency upon booze, moderate your alcohol intake and start making positive plans for your future after lockdown ends.
What are your ambitions, hobbies and favourite activities?

My ambitions doesn’t suit a post covid 19 life, like I like doing music and I always wanted to be a teacher (I was an activity instructor but now furloughed), I wanted eventually to leave this *****ty country because I’m a loner

I’m a boring guy, I’m not like a footie type or a lad culture kind of guy, like my hobbies are just me listening to *****y music or being stuck playing gta all day. It’s sad

You don't sound boring at all.
What type of music do you enjoy?
Which countries do you think that you would like to visit as a tourist or for work?
