I drank for five days to try and feel better.

Six weeks ago I was feeling very emotional. I drank for five days to try and stop feeling emotional and feel better.

It worked for a bit, but ended up by the end of a day and for the rest of time drinking, being depressed, drinking in parks on my own, back in old circles in pubs around wrong people who were drinking. In the end my head took me into bad places and I wanted to throw myself off a bridge to end it.

I’ve definitely learnt from this and next time I’d do things properly. If I felt emotional I would be honest and talk to other people who can help and support me. So I won’t drink to try and forget and cope and to feel different.
