Things to think about

Did you know that using drugs and alcohol can…

  • Affect your mood and your thinking while using and after using?
  • Get you in legal or financial trouble, and hurt your relationships?
  • Result in serious injury to you or other people?
  • Mess up your chances with a job?
  • Increase your risk of getting HIV or STDs?

Warning signs of a problem with drugs or alcohol include:

  • Using often
  • Advice from a health care provider not to use prescription medication or drink
  • Having frequent hangovers or feeling sick when you don’t use
  • Feeling run-down, depressed, or even suicidal
  • Having “blackouts” — forgetting what you did while using
  • Giving up activities or avoiding your friends and family who don’t use

What to do when you’re feeling low

  • Contact a trusted friend, family member, sponsor, or counselor and tell them how you feel.
  • Find a nearby recovery group
  • Find a healthy way to release anger or other emotions like exercise, writing, or drawing
  • Contact the 24/7 suicide hotline or call 911 if you feel unsafe.
  • Find a pleasurable activity to distract yourself such as taking a walk or listening to your favorite music.
  • Visit the emergency room if you need immediate care.
