- "Pure" OCD
I’m with you! There are times where my anxiety is too much to handle and i turn to alcohol to calm me down. I’m trying not to drink as much bc i want to be able to tackle this OCD all on my own.
I’m sorry you’re struggling too. I know it all sucks. I feel the same I want to tackle it on my own I get through most of the day like at work or before I take my fiancé to work but then I get afraid of how the thoughts will be or how I’ll feel when I’m alone and I get too scared to go without it. I went so long without drinking hard liquor the way I am now and then this recurring theme I’ve had just started coming at me like 100% worse than it has in a long time. I hate it.
I've heard drug and alcohol use is very common in people with ocd
Thank you. Yeah I just started thinking about it today and I was like I wonder if this is becoming a new compulsion of mine lol. I don’t want it. But it does help unfortunately and I guess that’s why I need to make myself go without it.
For sure. I’ve had a big problem with alcohol because of my OCD
:/ it sucks. I’m sorry.
Basically anything can become a compulsion.
Thank you! I really didn’t know that. That helps!
