    Very interesting post… The question of what is a disease is always on my mind, especially because I have MS and have a hard time comparing it to cancer, too. Why? Because cancer has a cure, like alcoholism has a cure. I’d say that like depression is masked with alcoholism. Kind of how I mask my depression by saying it is MS. The problem for me is that MS had no cure… But alcoholism does. If I knew I could cure myself of MS, I wonder if I could then find the strength to truly feel with my depression… Something I will likely never have the opportunity to explore in my lifetime. I wish you luck in figuring out how to manage your alcoholism, so you can cure your deprivation one and for all…

    Well I’m buying your book anyway in spite of your seemingly glowing review in this post! The post about running and being overweight really made a huge difference in my life because it gave me the confidence to move into trying c25k even though I weighed about 340 at the time. My weight loss is accelerating now (i’m finishing up week 3 of training) and a lot of it is thanks to you.

    I won’t pretend to understand all the things you are dealing with but I have depression issues and relate completely with that. Just keep on running and working your way forward, you have done an awesome job!

    I only just came across your blog and book about a week ago. Better late than never. Read the Kindle edition non-stop. Thanks for putting yourself through the torture of writing for us. There are easily enough brains and way more heart in what you write than any of the academic material I have to read.
    As I’ve also found, the depression precedes addiction and perseveres when the worst of the addiction subsides. My current strategy is to channel what I’m naturally good at (being depressed and addictive) into healthier things. Study and work and fitness have got to be better things to be addicted to. Doesn’t solve the problem of addiction but makes room for some acceptance of who I am so it’s part of the recovery process.
    We love you Angry Jogger.
