A friend of mine thinks that drug addiction would be a reasonable price to pay for getting rid of his depression/anxiety. I think he's being a dumbass and that you have to work in order to get rid of depression/anxiety (drugs help, of course, but they're not everything.) Which of us is right? Am I validated in considering saying, "Dude, if you're going to choose addiction, I can't be friends with you anymore"?|
Edi for clarificationt: Anti-depressants are awesome imo. But he's taking the dosage he's prescribed and says that it's not doing anything, so he's getting more of the same drug from other (illegal) sources. And his psychiatrist is refusing to up his prescribed dosage. It's Ativan, for what it's worth. I think he should just trust his doctor and deal with the dosage he's been given, but that's just my opinion.
