is a psychic condition which requires medical intervention.
But you did not mention whether it was diagnosed.
As you are mentioning about self medication
, is it your imagination?
Any way, you should consult a psychiatric / psychologist
for further advice and treatment.
Self medication can always be dangerous.
over and above, alcohol and nicotine
may provide temporary relief, but in long term, it is certainly dangerous.
Wish you speedy recovery.
