Oct 25, 2019 · Alcoholism and Holiday Celebrations in Addiction & Recovery

I will post again, I also have major social anxiety depression, issues. I have been prescribed controlled medication I.e. Xanax and kluonpin. Whim in and of itself can become an issue for an addiction person. I do practice deep breathing also walking fast. I was a functioning alcoholic for many years. Hit rock bottom that affected my home and personal relationships and trouble with employer. I think the best advise is not to go to a function if you’re not in a good place w your sobriety. I struggle daily to this day. Both sets of my grandparents were alcoholic as well as my father. I took my first drink when I was 12. Am 54 now.

Yes I find the Holidays extremely difficult!!! As I watch others without a drinking problem, I often feel anxious , punished that I can’t enjoy a few festive drinks without heading back down that dark path. Then I feed the idea I can have just one. Anxiety builds and I become angry .

Thank you for that information. I have been on 30mg of Effexor for 30 years. I know what brain zaps are! I’ve thought about cutting dosage to 150mg- any thoughts?

Thank you for this helpful information! I’ve recently been to a specialty clinic that is offering Spravato nasal spray. I don’t believe it yet, but they are helping people off anti depressants . Will keep you posted, my insurance just approved the medication . Haven’t had my first treatment yet. Google ketamine for severe depression on 60 minutes.
