Linwood Group Reveal Whether There is a Link Between Alcohol and Depression
Date:3/28/2010

history of either alcoholism or depression.

"Whether the drinking began before the symptoms of depression, or a person began to drink to ‘get through the day', the fact remains that people who regularly drink alcohol in order to cope with difficult situations or emotions find that this form of ‘self medication' eventually leads to even more extreme situations and emotions. In fact, apart from affecting their mental health, consuming alcohol also affects a person's memory and brain function and can be linked to increased anxiety levels and panic attacks and in severe cases with paranoia and mental confusion."

Whether it is drinking alcohol or depression, the two are so inter-twined that it has been shown that the earlier in a person's life that either of these two disorders develops, the greater the chance that the other will also arise. So, what are some of the symptoms of both to look out for? The Linwood Group has developed its Traffic Light System to provide a simple way of showing the symptoms of alcohol dependence. For depression, the Royal College of Psychiatrists recommends looking out for at least five or six of the following symptoms:

 
  • feeling unhappy most of the time (but may feel a little better in the evenings)
  • losing interest in life and can't enjoy anything
  • finding it harder to make decisions
  • can't cope with things that you used to
  • feeling utterly tired
  • feeling restless and agitated
