I'm kind of afraid of drugs and not really into them. I think all disorders, short of maybe schizophrenia, can be dealt with through counseling. My objections to drugs are: 1) don't trust them 2) side effects 3) dependency 4) avoiding the real issues instead of confronting 5) I like to own my progress, and I'm afraid taking drugs sorta compromises that ownership. My aversion to drugs bears some relationship to my aversion to alcohol as a means of self-help/coping. In moderation, alcohol can make you feel a shit ton better and drown out your problems, but you haven't, like Ivy said, addressed the underlying issues and you may have created some new ones in the process. Taking drugs in conjunction with therapy isn't as bad, but I'd personally give therapy a shot, first. I guess one could think of it as natural drugs.
