    How long have you been sober?
    Since June, so 4 months.

    I was so much happier when I drank, and I actually didn't feel like crap afterwards.
    I just came back to my normal depressed level.

    Nice one with the four months!

    If nothing else it should help your long term health obviously and help with weight.

    It's difficult for me to judge how not drinking is affecting me as my new maximum dose of antidepressant could still be kicking in and my life has become less stressful. But I feel better.

    There was a certain low that I feel alcohol might've contributed to with me and obviously I lost a lot of time drunk or passed out/blacked out that could maybe have been spent improving my future or doing something more fulfilling.

    Don't know what to recommend for you other than the usual medication changes, exercise,
    hobbies, omega 3, good diet...

    I'm really not a role model obviously but the stuff above has made me feel better at times and there seems to be research supporting those suggestions as you'll know. Sorry if those suggestions like exercise don't fit your current motivation and time constraints.

    But although my life isn't outwardly one to aspire to now I do feel pretty good and I think that could be down to my med combination and being alcohol free and regular light exercise. Still have sad times like going to bed yesterday afternoon from 1-4pm and just doing nothing at times.

    Don't mean to be an annoyingly keen bean

    Just trying to help/be there dawg

    It's weird how when you;re at school/college/Uni and you talk to loads of people and get along well with them. Yet when you try and talk to them on Facebook or whatever, they seem really disinterested. Forever wondering where I stand.

    Meeeeh.

    I wouldn't take it personally, I don't like talking to people on Facebook unless I know them well, otherwise I feel really awkward :dontknow:
