    I drink everyday these days. I drink too much I know it. But I'm so depressed, it's the only thing that seems to help me.

    alcohol is a depressant so it won't make you feel better it will make you feel worse in the long run. Ihope you can get some professional help to get you
    through this rough time.

    I hae debated starting. But with three antipsychotics, a mood stabilizer, and an antidepressant; I think it wise not to start.

    Yes when I'm very suicidal- I start drinking, it's saved my life but can also risk it as the fight completely goes the few times I've got drunk. It was so much easier to attempt.

    If it helps you, it helps. :hug: Do you have a therapist or psych services to keep an eye on your drinking and mood? Do you take any medication?

    I fell into the same trap for a while but drinking just makes me feel so much worse in the long run. I'm now trying to stay sober and really feeling the benefits.
