YOu've started in the right direction. Alcohol isolates you, though it hides that fact from you. And it makes depression worse --- it is a depressing drug. I am certain that you can be helped --- you should arrange to see a good local psychiatrist for assessment and diagnosis, to clarify the degree of Depression, social anxiety, etc., and then to work with you to select the best treatment, which ideally might include medication of the antidepressant soert, and CBT type counselling. You CAN be much better than that
