I posted this article specifically for number 6. Cope in a healthy way. I struggled with this for a long time. I often turned to drinking because it made the depression and anxiety disappear for the time being, however, I woke up the next morning feeling even worse then before. Since then I have turned to going on walks when I am stressed, binge watching my favorite show on netflix, working out or confiding in a close friend. I now drink once or twice a month, not to cope, just socially with friends. I have never been more happy.
