How Alcohol & Anxiety Attacks Almost Took My Life… [Podcast]
By: Joseph Simonds on April 12, 2019
This week’s podcast episode is like no other episode I’ve done before.
And it’s a tough one to share…
In fact, I actually completely deleted my first recording of it because I was a bit scared to publish this…
But then I received a text from my good high school friend letting me know one of our buddies had taken his own life…
So I got back on the mic to share my 14-year journey of struggling with alcohol, severe anxiety, and bouts of depression…
But I’m also going to share what healed me.
In this episode I talk about:
- My lowest point in struggling with alcohol (how one night started a downward spiral…).
- Why social anxiety caused me to miss multiple weddings.
- The simple trick I learned from a freediving class that helped wipe away nearly all of my panic attacks.
- Why I was lying to everyone and hiding my anxiety (and why you shouldn’t do that!).
- What has been a HUGE help in curing my anxiety attacks and any thoughts of being down…
If I can help just one person with this episode, then it’ll be a success.
I’d love to hear your feedback, so shoot me an email or leave a comment below.
Conquering Alcohol, Depression & Anxiety [Podcast]
If I can help just one person with this podcast, then I’ve done my job.
Here are some things that have helped me:
- Whenever things get tough, I always remind myself, “This too shall pass.”
- If I feel an anxiety attack coming on, I slowly breathe in through my nose and feel the air expanding in my stomach, not my chest.
- I have a strong purpose in my life.
- Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich helped me realize everything is in my mind.
- I shared my journey through depression, anxiety, and alcohol to happiness in my book, Fishing For Happiness, in hopes of helping others.
If you’re struggling with depression, anxiety, or alcohol, I urge you to share it with someone.
You’d be surprised at how many people are struggling with this, and a simple conversation may be the difference between life and death.
If you want to share it with me, please contact me at my private email firstname.lastname@example.org, I’d be happy to talk.
Thanks for listening and if you know someone who could benefit from hearing my story, please share it with them!
