Finding Balance: Coping with Drinking and Antidepressants

I’ve been struggling with finding the right balance between dealing with my depression and managing my alcohol intake. It’s been a challenge, especially since I started taking antidepressants. I know that drinking can interfere with my medication and make my mental health worse, but it’s been a coping mechanism for me for so long. I’m starting to realize that I need to make changes for my own well-being, and I want to find healthier ways to cope with my depression. Does anyone else have similar experiences or any advice on how to navigate this tough situation? I could really use some support and guidance during this difficult time. Thank you.
