How to stop??!!!!!

Hello there.
I've recently (last 3 months) had my life turned upside down.
My husband was still married (and married me), walked out on me and my little girl (3), becoming a single mum with no support & now we are losing the house & have 2 months to find a home!!!
It's been hell!!!
Alongside this rubbish time, I suffer with severe PTSD (flashbacks, nightmares, fear) and OCD which is hard enough on its own but together with everything else lately- I've been using a new coping mechanism and need advice...

Since it's become us 2 girls against the world, I can say I've been a pillar of strength. I've surprised myself.
I had a friend who used to sniff occasionally, so I tried some about a month ago & im now in a position about a month later whereby I feel (although know it's not true) I need it to cope.
I know this isn't true because I had a whole day without any yesterday & coped perfectly & slept better & felt so proud!!

I don't do a lot at a time, but I'm spending £20- £30 a day on it recently & I know it's getting out of hand.

What can I do at those weak moments when I'm stressed, feel I need some, but want to resist???
Those are the weak moments I use it to give me a happy feeling when I feel overwhelmed by my current position.

I don't want to be lectured- I realise I am doing wrong & that is why I am here because I want to do something about it.
