    Hi, I'd like to know how many are doing the same, started drinking alcohol to beat the lockdown blues? Also it is even harder to get appropriate care in this situation , so I'm drinking more and more. Max

    Hey Max. Yep. I was doing that for a while during the earlier stages. Just a quick go-to that can be a trap.

    I happen to be in a place where the restrictions aren't too bad.

    Yeah, I'd just try to explore different avenues for distractions. I use piano, guitar, juggling, mainly as my source of wellness. Cooking is good too. I'm sure lots of people are cooking more frequently now since Covid.

    I know it seems like a good idea to drink while in lockdown but keep in mind depression will amplify most of the time in that mix.
