Can you suggest how to get away from everything without drugs, alcohol, or suicide?

Healthy habits: Take a break in your mind. Learn to meditate, listen to calming music, or to guided imagery. Take a walk in nature. Start aerobic exercise. Look to a spiritual power and pray for release. It depends on what works best for you. Try these out to see how it makes you feel. The key is to be 'addicted' to this positive activity instead, so that the urge is to turn to this activity when stressed.
