    So I landed in IT 7ish months ago, thing is I really cant work at my current company much longer it is mentally draining me and stressing me out. I am thinking of leaving and just getting any odd job to get by and pay the bills. Do you think this will hinder my future IT employment? The fact I left IT and got a non-IT related role? Then wanting to return?

    How would you phrase it you your new employer if you went for another IT role.

    A lot of the jobs ask for people who can cope under pressure. I never think its a good thing to go back, unless its nookie with an ex and even that isnt always a good idea, especially after you have sobered up.

    I think you need to stick it out and look at why/where you are getting stressed and see if you can manage until you find a new role.

    If anything the lack of experience will hinder you... Even after 1+ years of exp no one will seriously think you can jump in to any helpdesk role and do a good job. Also what is on your CV is a lot more important if you have only one IT job there.

    Why not looking for another job in IT? Even same roles can differ wildly at different companies.

    You have to power through the bad times before you get to the good times. God knows I've had some awful jobs. You have to keep going. Try and get some certs to back up your experience and move onto bigger and better things.

    Keep going Juelz.

    What is it that is stressing you out? Customer calls?

    Is there a particular part of IT, you find interesting? (e.g. Windows, Linux, Networking). If so, try focusing on that and learning more about it. You can then move onto a role which specialises in it

    Haha yeah, I am still here Juelz. It's going to be more difficult than that to get rid of me xD

    As Sparky said, stick it out a year so you can say you have 1 year's experience, then move on. But yeah, I can understand how frustrating it can be when you try and do your best and want to help improve processes, but it doesn't feel like anyone is listening or the company is reluctant to change/improve.
