    Hi!

    I'm new here. How is everyone doing during this difficult time? I hope you're all well.

    I actually reside in the UK but struggled to find a forum similar to this one.

    I was wondering if anyone had any opinions on how the pandemic may effect substance use?

    Boredom is a big factor in substance abuse. We addicts probably do tend to abuse more in times of extreme boredom. So i could definitely see a rise in it while people ate stuck at home.
