I have a problem, I can't stop drinking ever since the self

I have a problem, I can't stop drinking ever since the self isolating. It's crazy because I am always home anyways so why am I using alcohol so much? Any advice to try and be "normal"?

Honestly I totally feel you. For me it's like, "I've got nothing to do tomorrow and I'm alone and bored and sad so why not?". I think part of it is the whole apocalypse mentality, like the world has stopped turning or something, so even though YOUR routine hasn't changed much, the shift in the rest of the world's routine can affect you all the same. BPD can definitely cause heightened sensitivity to change (at least for me). One thing I've started doing is going on walks as often as I can, even if it's only for 10 minutes. It's helped me get out of my own head and feel less like I'm in a perpetual fugue state. That and sitting in the grass and meditating for 5-10 minutes or practicing grounding techniques. Hope this helps! :)

@Kiari Thanks a lot for the advice, yeah you’re probably right, I am going to try that. I think for me is I become less internally focused so hopefully just doing mindfulness will help me along. Thanks :slight_smile: I am glad it’s something other people feel from time to time, makes me feel less different.
