Do you worry about addiction or substance misuse?
The thing with drink and drugs is that they can be fun. If they weren't you wouldn't have started using them in the first place.
Because we tend not to pay attention to every moment in our lives, it can be easy to continue believing they're still fun even when you're well past that point - spending all of your money on a big night out on payday, or not remembering the last day you didn't have a drink for example. But just because you didn't notice how you got there doesn't mean you can't at any moment stop and start taking notice.
Once you notice the problem it becomes a lot easier to change. And that change is led by you - you don't have to completely stop using your substance of choice, you can choose to cut down to a point that doesn't feel problematic instead.
We often use drinks and drugs to avoid feelings. They are after all literally designed to alter how we feel. But the problem is that whilst we can choose to use them to block one feeling, we might find them eventually blocking all of them meaning we never feel like we're having fun anymore.
Therapy can help you to take a look at how and why you are using, and to create a clear path of what you want to change.
