Self-medication II   1 comment

I spoke of my drinking to my therapist last Friday, and she told me to keep the following in mind:

  • My drinking does not affect my ability to carry out daily activities.
  • Wanting to medicate myself in times of emotional stress is a normal reaction. I do not need to give in to it, but if I do I should not hold myself in low regard.  It is (sometimes) equivalent to eating an entire pint of Ben & Jerry’s.
  • I should not keep gin in the house.

On the last, she agrees with me. 🙂

  1. My self-medication is either vodka or Haagen-Das coffee ice cream.
