Do you turn to harmful substances when you’re feeling down? We encourage you to find that supportive friend you can lean on in times of trouble. It’s not always easy to ask for help, but it is the healthiest decision you could make. Another option is to seek professional help in the form of counseling. If you’re troubled or you’ve been experiencing a lot of anxiety, depression, or other mental and emotional symptoms or conditions, turning to alcohol or other drugs is the worst step you could take and will only make you feel bad in the long run. Take care of yourself and choose the healthy route!
