    do you guys realize that alcohol is a substance that will actually make your depression worse?

    I like who I am when I'm drunk.

    Yep IV, it is.

    * I like it
    * It helps me sleep
    * It makes it easy to distract myself from the bitter pain, heartbreak and hollowness that plagues every minute of my life.

    @ IV2010

    It's hit and miss. I find most often that it makes it easier to get lost in passive, meaningless, mindless shit and helps me forget how cripplingly depressed I am. It's common knowledge that alcohol is a depressant, and your point honestly borders on condescension (though I'm sure it was unintentional), but there's a reason so many people have turned to it in times of need.

    Sometimes, it DOES make things horribly worse, but to be truthful, for me, it's a risk I'm willing to take, because more often than not it simply helps me forget and have a little fun without that nagging voice going off in the back of my head reminding me of why everyday feels like a fucking funeral. Pathetic? Well, that's in the eye of the beholder... I'm just doing what I can to survive.

    I like to drink because it makes me feel good and numb, it kills the pain and stops me from thinking about all of it.

    I like to drink because it helps me forget about how much a total failure I am, and its the only time I can put up a false sense of security and delude myself from the actual truth.
