Ruby is right, here. Daily dagga smoking is just not good for the brain - and its as bad or worse than cigarette smoking, for the lungs. If she really feels she needs that much wine every day, she also has an alcohol problem.
It is pointless her taking an antidepressant ( if she is indeed depressed ) if she is taking this much alcohol ( always a brain depressant ) and dagga. Its just a waste of money.
I wonder if she has been treated these 10 years by a GP, when she should be seen for a full assesment by a proper, expert, psychiatrist, with whom she must be entirely frank about her drug and alcohol intake, and discuss both what her underlying diagnosis might be, and what are the best treatment options
