How common is it for recovering alcoholics to struggle with depression? My exbf, now just friends, has once again cut himself off from everyone. He has been sober for almost 5 years. The last time I talked to him he sounded pretty bad. He was in bed at 9:30 AM on a Saturday and that is VERY unusual. I am concerned he may be headed towards relapse. I know I can't fix him and I know I can't help him. He won't talk to me right now and he is going to have to deal with whatever is going on himself.
He hasn't been attending meetings and his mood has been really up and down this month. I guess I just wondered what everybody's else's experience with this has been. All I can do is be there for him when and if he decides to contact me.
