Thinking about dropping out of uni in MAIN AND GENERAL FORUM Posted December 5, 2017 · Report reply Thank you for the reply MadDoc. I have no intention of ever doing drugs again, but the drinking is what I'm struggling with the most. I enjoy drinking but having read threads on this forum, I feel as if I am putting myself at risk of a longer recovery if I continue to drink. Although I don't really want to drop out of Uni as I would love to get a degree in a subject I love, I am just not enjoying Uni because of the stress of the work and the drinking and drug culture. Also, I miss my family and friends back home. If I was to drop out, there would be nothing stopping me from coming back when(if) I fully recover in a couple of years but I don't really want to start all over again. This is such a shit situation to be in!!! My uni does have a counselling service so I will check that out and see if they can offer any advice. Thank you for the advice MadDoc, it is much appreciated.
