Hi unique

I do feel better than when I made this post back in April, it’s just the anxiety that’s lingering still.

Yes the first six months for me were hell tbh. I thought I was going crazy and the suicidal thoughts were the worst. It does get easier and I have improved a bit.
If it weren’t for this forum I’d be smoking again as I didn’t know about paws and that’s why I’m trying to hang on to 2-3 yrs sober to see if I do eventually get out of this situation.

The anxiety is like constant worrying and self doubting myself. I was getting the shortness of breath and palpitations but don’t notice as much anymore

To me this sounds like (possibly) Complex PTSD. https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/post-trau ... d/complex/ Vulnerability to addiction is part of the mess.

Weight gained
Gingivitis

... sounds like comfort eating and problems with personal care, also part of C-PTSD. Do you use dental floss every day? Do you struggle to take care of yourself?
