I am having a terrible time coping w/ my anxiety/depression right now. I've been using marijuana and alcohol for about 7 years kind of self medicating myself. About 8 months ago, I had anxiety beat through healthy eating, exercise and cutting down alcohol and felt near the best in my life. In my college town I got into a terrible relationship, some of my biggest fears came true and kind of traumatized me a bit. Over the summer I moved home and my anxiety was a little less hectic, but I just came back down to college a few days ago and my anxiety is back ten fold just due to all the memories here plus my ex gf living a few blocks away. It's really bad I guess I've been sober for 3 months which is the longest of my life and I'm having to avoid all my friends and drinking which is causing me anxiety and all the flashbacks of things that are bothering me in being back at my college. I kind of don't know what to do I've been working out eating healthy but my anxiety is just about the highest it's ever been. I've been meditating twice a day also but this is almost unbearable I dunno if it's the best idea for me to be in this environment right now. I only have one semester left but it is tough for my sobriety and just reliving everything that started this anxiety in the first place. I'm kind of stuck in a bind and needing advice if anyone has any.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
