Depression or Alcoholism???
Posted by miniatureone on 20 June 2016.
I have a wonderful partner, we've been together for 3 years. He has always liked a drink but on more than one occasion he has been violent & aggressive towards me, my children & our friends. He is always so upset the next day, apologising etc. He blames these outbursts on his "depression". He takes antidepressants, prescribed by his GP. My question is, does he drink because he's depressed or is he depressed because he drinks? His memory is awful, his personal hygiene is terrible. He goes for days sometimes without eating. I don't know what to do
