When I'm drinking or using I can't stop

You are not the only one.

People start drinking or using drugs for lots of different reasons.

When you drink or do drugs you might:

  • Like yourself better
  • Feel less worried or depressed
  • Be more comfortable talking to people
  • Forget the abuse for a while
  • Feel like you belong
  • Feel less angry or scared than you usually do
  • Feel that people like you more
  • Feel more in control
  • Not have any feelings at all and that's exactly what you want

You probably have more than one reason for starting. Lots of people do. But - if you're finding you can't stop when you want to, it's a problem that can be solved.
