I avoided it for about ten years, but finally got prescribed Cymbalta last week. It seems to have affected me somewhat already. This weekend I was home alone and somewhat bored, but had no desire to drink. Normally I would fight with myself back and forth about getting and finishing a 12 pack before finally just doing it and getting housed. I even had beer around and didn't want any. Never even occurred to me to drink. Now that could just be that I go through phases of not wanting to drink, but last night was at a friends house and had a few beers and was fine. I think more it's about not feeling the need/desire to drink alone to excess. Now I know these kinds of pills take awhile to get functional in your system so it might be psychosomatic, but still, things just don't seem to be bugging me as much.
