Question: I am a heavy drinker and this habit is affecting my studies. Because of all this, I am depressed. How do I cope with this?
Thank you for reaching out and sharing your concerns.
It takes a lot of courage to admit what you are going through and am glad to be able to do that!
That is the first step towards getting better. The next thing I would request you to do is to work on the tool called ‘The CAGE Questionnaire”. You also need to ask yourself the following questions:
- What are the advantages of drinking?
- What are the disadvantages of drinking?
- What are the advantages of not drinking?
- What are the disadvantages of not drinking?
I would also request you to write down the responses to the same.
In addition, please go through some interesting articles and videos that will help you understand everything you need to know in detail, by clicking on the ‘addiction’ tab.
Hope this helps, if you have any other queries do connect online for chat between 11am-8pm or drop us an offline message.
