    Recently, I saw a commercial regarding dangers of illegal drugs and warnings for teenagers. It featured a prominent football player who said at the end of clip, "Football, my anti-drug" showcasing it was his passion for football that kept him away from temptation of drugs.
    It made me raise interesting Q. What is my anti-depression? I would say it is basketball, family, and hope for the future.
    What is your anti-depression?

    that sounds like an interesting way of warning kids, any idea if there is a video on youtube? i wouldnt mind seeing it.

    anyway to the question - i really dont think i have one. i have no interests in anything anymore and no longer have any friends.

    Comedies like Seinfeld, Curb etc always make me feel better. Videogames help to a certain extent. Walking the dog, playing golf and tennis ... things like that. I also like reading about other countries and their customs etc, reassures me that 'normal' is totally subjective. And also shows that the world has a lot of weird and wonderful things to offer which one day I want to be a part of.

    Reading about space is good too. Reminds me how insignificant me and my problems are (which is good, I think) and makes me want to stick around to see how much more we can learn.

    Id have to say goood angry Rock and Metal is mine...

    But, the thing that works the most is Drifting. When i go out and hop into my RX-7 and spend 3-4 hours drifting its kinda hard to feel depressed after youve just done something people dream about doing.... God i love it.

    I guess that my anti-depression things would my music that I play and singing. Playing my guitar and singing some beatles songs always cheers me up. The classics are really good.

    I love that photograph with the 'tilt-a-whirl' sign on top :smile:. I like those grid like lines- it looks like some kind of little prison with possible strange creatures living in it..

    I don't really have an 'anti-depression' as I'm not depressed. I generally try and listen to myself first and foremost- try and keep myself not floating out of my head too much. I have gone through 2 years in various dissociative fogs..

    A special girl to me is one of my anti-depressants. Unfortunately at the moment I can’t be with her, so every moment I’m not with her and wondering what she is doing I get worse (its complicated). So it kind of works both ways. Also, unfortunately, drugs. I know, bad habit, but at least I’m getting better than I was. And music, as everyone says. Sometimes reading, but sometimes when I’ depressed I find it hard to sit down, relax, and simply read.

    For people who said they use alcohol and drugs as anti-deprssion, you have to quit using those ASAP. Though alcohol and drugs make u feel good temporarily, they always make u feel worse afterward. They are "depressants" for a reason. They also ruin countless people's lives by making them becoming an addict.
    Please quit using drugs and alcohol ASAP and replace them with healthy coping mechanisms such as exercise, playing sports, playing guitar, working on garden, going to movies, etc... I want you guys to look at long-term picture. Though life is tough for all of us right now battling depression, I envision all of us living happy, wonderful, fun, and successful life in the future.

    mine are simple things in life yet they works wonder in me like the feeling i get after brushing my tooth, taking a long stroll at random places at sundown, a good book, preparing my own meal, & when i'm really in such a bad mood i'll just take a walk in the rain let it all wet (if just nice its rain though)
