i will try to be short and concise. jan 6, 2009 i quit drinking because i had a serious binge drinking problem. for first time ever i reached out for professional help. both a doc and a shrink. i joined ds and this group shortly after. i had my doc put me on antabuse to quit drinking. fine. then shrink thought depression was the problem and caused the alcohol binges. fine. i need help for depression not alcohol. then doc says not so fast, maybe alcohol binges brought on depression. fine. i'm a depressed drunk. not uncommon. the question is, does this ever get clear? is there a clinical diagnosis? either alcoholism or depression? or both? or is this always a never ending confusing circle? i know i didn't explain this well, but does anyone know what i'm saying? any insight? thanks
