Hey everyone. After a year of again denying I have a problem I'm back in here. My problem: binge drinking. Since I began taking an SSRI a month and a half ago I began to blackout weekly. I'm tired of this. I no longer want to quit for others. I want to quit because I feel like ****.

Welcome (back) Lucho

Yeah meds can react in all kinds of ways when we drink alcohol with them.

Got any ideas yet on how you'll stay quit?

I was thinking taking Antabuse for the short term, and begin a LT plan with my therapists. I don't feel like doing AA, but I also know its hard to do this alone

I didn't want to do AA either. But my therapist recommended it to me because I can find support from people that understand me better. AA has changed my life and I would recommend it. I understand the stigma attached to being a member but it is much better than being the sloppy drunk. There are many other programs that can help you. Good luck Lucho.

I recommend whatever else you decide to do - make a recovery plan as well
