First congrats on being sober from drugs! As for the alcohol, admitting to it first is a huge step!
For me i removed myself from situations and people that gave me the urge to drink.
I didn’t see a therapist for 5 years of my sobriety and i wish i had, if you have insurance and can go def do it. It has been one of the keys to helping me to have a clearer mind and healthier ways to express my feelings as opposed to just drowning in my sorrows.
I eat lots of foods with Vitamin B, Tryptophan,and high protein, they are good for helping with anxiety, and depression.
Exercise! Even if you take a walk everyday, getting out and move around. :)
Finally i meditate, it’s not for everyone but i enjoy it, it centers me.
i hope this helps <3
You can’t find intimacy—you can’t find home—when you’re always hiding behind masks. Intimacy requires a certain level of vulnerability. It requires a certain level of you exposing your fragmented, contradictory self to someone else. You running the risk of having your core self rejected and hurt and misunderstood.Junot Díaz (via psych-facts)
Date someone who is interested in you. I don’t mean someone who thinks you’re cute or funny. I mean someone who wants to know every insignificant detail about you. Someone who wants to read every word you write. Someone who wants hear every note of your favourite song, and watch every scene of your favourite movie. Someone wants to find every scar upon your body, and learn where each one came from. Someone who wants to know your favourite brand of toothpaste, and which quotes resonate deep inside your bones when you hear them. There is a difference between attraction and interest. Find the person who wants to learn every aspect of who you are, and hold onto them.(via evilparadise)
This all if this!!!
