I've been trying to get sober for a few months now. over the past few years I have drastically cut down on the number of days that I drink, I don't go to work hungover and have lost 10-15 pounds. Now I just go out once a week. but most of the time that means I drink too much and wake up with a hangover and hate myself. It's easy to stay sober when I'm just hanging out at home. but when I'm out with a group my anxiety tends to get the best of me. so I have a drink to calm my nerves but once I catch a buzz I can't stop drinking. Does anybody have any tips to get over the social anxiety? Does anybody else have or used to have this problem when you first got sober?
