I had a good run with alcohol... probably "abused alcohol" throughout my entire 20's.... (I'm 33)

And while alcohol causes depression... Even more depressing is transitioning
to a life of sobriety. Been sober for about 2 years now with a few minor slip ups...
but the first year of sobriety felt like a complete void.

I always felt like I could handle depression... But when you experience what I commonly
refer to as THE VOID, that's when you're in major trouble... and that's when I got on
some meds (wellbutrin works great).

Anybody ever felt the void? Anybody know what the f*ck I'm talking about?
