The biggest tip I have for anyone wanting to improve themselves.

I'm fully on board brother, if you're struggling mentally you should look long and hard at what you're putting into your system be it substances or experiences or the people you keep around you. But to suggest it can entirely eliminate a condition that for some is severely clinical... I feel that can really stop people being taken seriously for clinical anxiety cases and really does feed the "hurr we wont help it must be the substances" mentality we see a lot in mental health support. I went through a horrific experience with the MHU that actually left me seriously traumatised to the point it has taken 4 years to even consider re-engaging and I can honestly say I will never engage with NHS mental health again. Strictly private practice for me and having quit every single substance of any anxiety is still debilitating. Who knew?
