Yes, in the past, but currently I don't have insurance, which makes things difficult. I'm pretty sure I also drink out of loneliness and to avoid facing things I don't like about my life. I find myself feeling extreme anxiety at the end of the day and this intense need to get alcohol on the way home from work. I've been doing good for the last few weeks, but the last couple of days I've fallen off the wagon.

Sigh, thanks for listening.
