    hey, it seems kind of weird to me to put down personal stuff on the internet but i am at the point to where i dont know what to do. i moved to a new town, only 2 hours from my old town. this new place is ok, but all there is to do here is drink. i used to drink a lot and quit because it put me in a really bad state of mind. i go to my old town a lot to see my old friends but i will be honest, its kind of sad. they do the same thing everyday (drink and smoke pot) and they have no ambitions to become better people. while being in this new town, i have spent a lot of time alone and have pretty much looked in the mirror and hated what i saw. i used to have a lot of good friends that i would push away and dont talk to anymore. i am scared to death to get close to people because i have met enough bad people in my life to get screwed over enough to be afraid of showing any sign of emotion towards someone. the people that i do realize i really miss have long since been out of my life because i pushed them away. i dont know, i just feel like i got kicked off the horse again and i dont want to get back on anymore. if someone has some advice to help me fix some of this stuff, or something that would get me on the right track, i would really appreciate it. thanks.

    hi jason, you sound pretty down. sorry to hear it. you will find many supportive people here if you want to talk. alcohol is a depressant, so if you are drinking more you might find your mood sinks even lower. if you are thinking of suicide it's time to reach out for more support, starting maybe with your doctor if you have one? sounds scary, and it is (just talked to my doc myself two weeks ago) but through that one person you will find all kinds of professional support to help you through this difficult time. hang in there,
