Thanks for the info PM :-)

I'm assuming "alochol intolerance" means that I won't like it as much because of it making me ill while taking Celexa? That wouldn't be a bad thing since my drinking is one major area in my life that upsets me.

Today the doc called and said they found someone for me to talk to. I _did_ call and make an appointment..the earliest I could get since I don't want to give myself time to chicken out. Next Thursday is my day to hopefully start making things better.

I'm really trying to police my drinking. Working later in the day has helped. My job is the one place I feel safe. Weekends are the worst. An unusual thing, I should think. :-)

So far I've not had any type of side effect from the celexa. Yay!

A part of me cannot believe I am finally going to see a doctor to talk. Never, ever did I think I would! But then I never thought I'd be promising _my doctor_ to stay on a pill. I thought promises were only met for mothers and clergy. ;-)

I suppose tho'..I've nothing to lose.

Cheers!
Seb

You probably don't have anything to worry about. Hopefully some people with real-world experience with Celexa will respond to your question; their experiences may not jive with the official info.
