Zijax, I apologize for not checking this thread earlier.

How did I do it? That's the big question, isn't it? I have Clinical Depression and Complex PTSD and both impair my memory. I cannot remember the exact events that led up to my stopping drinking. I had serious problems and realized drinking wasn't helping me better my life. I did stop drinking but, I switched to overeating.

What helped me the most was working hard to resolve the problems that fueled my depression. I have been in a out of psychotherapy over the years and that worked for me. My background is a monstrosity and I needed the one on one to get through it.

I had to learn new healthy habits to get my life on track because I was adding to my problems.

Does this help answer your question?
