Smile How I recovered from Social Phobia

Hi, I thought some of you might be interested in my recovery story. I suffered badly from Social Phobia, but I eventually overcame it by attending group Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I no longer have any of the symptoms of SP, despite having suffered from it for over 30 years. I also developed a bad alcohol problem as a result of self-medicating to deal with social situations. This was bad enough to end in my being placed in a detox unit and a rehab centre. Alcoholism too, I overcame using CBT.


All the best,

Andrew
