What is self-medicating with alcohol?

Self-medicating with alcohol is incredibly common, as many people turn to this substance after a stressful day to relax or “loosen up.” Remember, alcohol is a sedative and a depressant. This means that alcohol alters your mood and causes you to feel tired. Alcohol does not solve your problems but instead keeps them bottled up inside of you, waiting to burst.
