It often starts with

  • "I deserve a drink after a long day"

  • "Weed helps me relax, helps me sleep"

  • "I'm just going to try it, everyone is doing it"

After repeated use

  • You may notice that you can't relax without alcohol

  • You need weed to steady your nerves

  • You think about using more often, it takes up more of your mental space

  • When you stop using, your mood shifts and you feel irritable

  • Your friends and family may complain about your use, or encourage you to stop or slow down

  • Your use has negatively impacted your relationships, work or school performance

Perhaps you are still not sure whether your alcohol or substance use is problematic, or you have realized that it is a problem and you are ready for a change
