8. I went a ways down that path too...

I have to be vigilant of it still. Sadly I'm one of those for whom alcohol works very well as a cure, at least temporarily before it destroys everything else. When I was at my worst I would come home and drink a whole 5th of vodka on the weekends and I was even stealing wine from my parents store in the basement during weekdays too. That was all something of a shameful period. I still drink casually at family dinner parties and the like but I have to monitor it and make sure I'm not letting it get out of hand.

Things like partying and dating are still off the table for me due to my social anxiety and lack of experience but I know for a fact that I could march out there and party and or date with a heavy buzz on. That's NOT a good thing, it means that I have to be ever vigilant that I'm not using alcohol as a crutch.
