Anyone ever had a nervous break while drinking? I had one for the first time and it was terrifying, I felt so out of control. Have never had an issue with alcohol before but this has really scared me

I have had about 3 panic attacks while I was drunk, very scary for both me and the people I was with. They happened because I was drinking in excess to avoid personal problems. Now I refuse to drink in excess if I am in a poor mental state. Don’t let this stop you from having a social life, but know your body is trying to tell you something is off. Sending love your way and hope you’re recovering ok! ❤️

Thank you! I appreciate this advice. I think I’m just never gonna drink in excess again. Just can’t allow myself to be a danger to myself and others.

Yes, first time recently a few months back. Probably the founding moment I knew I was officially in a depressed episode. Got in an stupid argument with a friend but versus being able to blow it off, it became such a huge deal to me that I spiraled into a suicidal spin. Luckily couldn’t go through with it but was the first time ideation went to insane need.

Yes just a few weeks ago. Felt like I was demon possessed. Not going to drink for a least a year. May decided never to again. Not worth it

The person I’m seeing has been responding to my texts days later (only a recent development) and it’s making me anxious.

But I have an anxious attachment style (if that’s not obvious) and my therapist is on leave right now, so I’m struggling. Do any of you have any advice?

We encountered an issue with a car dealership client where they record a used car in their inventory based on their current valuation and a lower cost is paid for the purchased cars. They call the difference as "undernet" and this practice is common for the industry as per client. Based on IAS 2 an inventory should be recognised lower of cost or NRV. Anyone who encountered this issue with their client before? Can you share your experience and how did you resolve this issue?
