Listener Question from Samantha.
I’ve been listening to your podcast for about a month now, and I have been sober for a little over 4 months. In the beginning of sobriety, everything was great! I was feeling awesome. I was productive in my recovery and in my life. In the middle of around month 2, things started turning for the worse. Although I still have not picked up a drink, my mental health has been suffering. I realized that I was using alcohol to “help” my anxiety, depression, and insecurities.
I have been going to meetings, talking to my sponsor, going to a psychologist, and going to a psychiatrist. My anxieties, depression, and insecurities have only seemed to deepen. Is there anything you suggest I do to help cope with all of this in sobriety?
Thank you for your podcast. In my lowest moments, it truly does help. You may also use my name and email in your podcast if you would like to.
Enjoy! xoxo Lynn
