~~~ If one has those conditions **untreated** long enough... depression is highly likely and inherently comorbid. No, beer probably isn't better and there are few folks that DON'T feel better drinking a six pack a night... for a while. There is probably MORE overall danger and risk w/ chronic ETOH consumption than w/ any number of other drugs out there.
Everything has its risks versus benefits profile. Nothing comes w/out some risk and few w/out benefit. Life is not an "all or nothing" process - absolute thinking can be a huge stumbling block. One cannot keep believing "things" are either all good or all horrible and waiting on the "all good" prefection that will NEVER arrive.... well, one CAN but that just means one is stuck not ever moving forward, not living and just waiting to die. It **does not** have to be that way... no matter the circumstances.... it's a personal choice to help oneself...
