Overspent at Christmas got into a cycle of debt again but worse of all started drinking again

@QualityGeezer That sucks man, debt can be a right pain in the ass, how bad is the debt? Is it feasible just a bit hard to fathom or a bit code red panic station kinda thing.

And how much you drinking man would you say?

It's only a months worse of debt it's just no money affects my bi polar so I chase things I know it sounds stupid. Only 4 a day but I shouldnt be drinking because my bi polar and autism usually results in a poblem

@QualityGeezer It doesn't sound stupid at all man, just being a week or day behind paying a bill can drive me up the wall and I start to overthink and stress too much over it.

And have you got any things you could do potentially to take your mind off needing a drink? Playing some games or listening to some good music, I can always give you my PSN and Twitter so you can always talk to me man if you need someone.

@QualityGeezer this is very true with money it sure greases the wheels of life , I want to labour here that I don’t want to sound like we plug the show to much or inappropriately but we have a real great community on Instagram who all follow and support each other , if your in any way interested I know they’d welcome you with open arms and rally round and support you .They’ve all followed each other some meet up and play online with each other . Don’t be alone with your thoughts , really glad this post was setup by @DonJorginho so we can all support each other - if your really struggling see a GP , it isn’t easy I know but for me it was a really great first step out the dark . I’d advise anyone to do this over self medicating with alcohol etc and struggling alone - they can offer counselling in your area and or medication to right things if things have got really bad ( meds aren’t for life or a reason to feel ashamed ) again speaking out is brave really brave and I couldn’t have done it when I was feeling real down as I wasn’t fully aware of what was happening , you seem far more intune with your self so again your making the right moves
