”If the seed of depression or sadness lives inside you, know that drugs and alcohol act as fertilizer for that seed to grown.” Blake Anderson
I read this quote about a year ago and it hit me hard. This is so very true and I feel like people don't talk about it enough!! Now does that mean you can't drink at all? Absolutely not! But it does mean you should strive for moderation; special occasion, a beer or glass of wine at dinner, etc.
Drinking in quantities that cause a clouded state of mind is never a good idea when you have underlying anxiety.
The next time you find yourself in a situation where you’re approaching that threshold remember this quote. A few tips that help me are to strike a balance of one drink per hour. Surround yourself by those who will encourage this behavior! Friends might not get it, but you will. So take control, be responsible and enjoy yourself! Remember you don't need to have a drink in your hand to have a good time! #moderation #alcohol #anxiety #depression #anxietyhelp #socialdrinks #accountability #knowyourlimits
