According to SAMHSA, “People with severe mental illness are about 4 times more likely to be heavy alcohol users.” Alcohol and drugs are often used to self-medicate the symptoms of mental health problems.

Personally, I (@alys_wickedsober) used alcohol to cope with my anxiety. Not knowing that alcohol was contributing to the massive bouts of anxiety I was waking up to at 3 am or having to deal with the whole next day at work. If you’ve read or heard my story before then you know that my anxiety got to the point where I had it all day, everyday. The only time I didn’t have it was for brief passing moments when that wine or vodka entered my bloodstream. At the end of my drinking “career” I was drinking morning to night and only taking naps.  If I fell asleep at 10 pm I would wake up at 2 am with so much anxiety that I couldn’t fall back to sleep. The only way I knew how to calm those thoughts and drift to sleep was by drinking the bottle of wine that I kept on my nightstand. I didn’t know that the anxiety I was experiencing was because of the alcohol.  The alcohol wasn’t curing anything, it was actually fueling it. Please do not let yourself get to the point of having to go to detox because you got into that vicious cycle. I know that anxiety is uncomfortable but know those moments will pass and it will get easier. Please talk to a therapist or medical professional about your anxiety and see if they can help you get a handle on it. Oh and if you’re on an antidepressant to manage your depression or anxiety better just know that the alcohol is blocking that from happening. I was taking Zoloft and wondering why I still was depressed and anxious. Well duh it won’t work when you’re ingesting a depressant.
.
All of this is to say you’re not alone. I wish that I had known all of this over 3 years ago, which is why I created this platform.  I wish there had been a sober community like Sober Mom Tribe to bring awareness, connect with other mothers, and provide hope for those still struggling. If you’re struggling know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. It may be dark at first but with the help of a medical professional and quitting alcohol it can be done..
