One of the things to be careful of when you are suffering from depression is starting to increase the amount of alcohol you drink.
Take me for example. Last November I was having maybe two drinks a week. On Monday evening, two nights ago, a friend asked me how if I was drinking more than usual. I thought about it for a bit. I think I am now averaging three drinks a night.
Whoa!! That surprised me. My drinking had crept up on me and I hadn’t really noticed. Just tonight my wife help up the scotch bottle. A third of it is gone and I only bought that three days ago. I think I need to do something, but what.
So last night I didn’t drink any alcohol. Hooray I thought, this is easy. Tonight? Four scotches. Hmm…
I don’t know. I see my psychologist and doctor on Monday. Maybe I should talk to them about this and see what I can do.
