A couple of years ago, i was doing it almost everyday. I hate to feel unhappy and hopeless because of losing someone so special.It drives me crazy and paranoid. And i cant accept what is reality. I get drunk almost everyday after work because i wanted to sleep instead of crying. Its been a hard times for me. I was thought i cant get through it. But then, finally i had to accept it. No matter how i tried to escape the feelings of loneliness and my heartaches but then i need to face and stand for it. I sacrificed ALOT and tried to let go the pain day by day. And accept no matter how it hurts me. Lately, i have some depression again. Maybe its because i have too much expectation from someone but then he fails me. I was get drunk again after a year. But then i realized that getting drunk is not a solution. But accepting what is real will set me free from having a depression. So, that is what i did again. And now, i am fine after 1 day. Here i am again posting and joining mylot for almost a week that i wasnt able to join here because of depression. And you???did you ever get drunk too because of depression???Share your thought and experienced...I would love to read it...

i don't get drunk to deal with depression, but i do have drinks to deal with it. i don't allow myself to get drunk, buti do often get buzzed. i just want to get to the point where i am feeling good...not where i am acting like an idiot.

to be drunk is not the best solution to forget the problem or any else i just for moments when you drunk too much all the hatered will come out to your own mouth because you are drunk when you normal you cannot open your problems in front of anybody else you dont need to be drunk if you have a problem just face it or just move on drinking is not a solution any problems...thnx peace!

Yes several times. I was going through a bad patch with my boyfriend at the time and because I was also working part-time at a bar, I would stay after hours with the bar owners and drink away till early hours in the morning. I think that lasted for about 6 months, drinking from Friday evenings through to Sunday afternoon (after darts competition). Until I left him, things started to get better and I also quit my part-time job and started to live life again LOL The things we do!

getting drunk when depression strikes ! what for ? can you find a lasting solution to your depression if you get yourself unconscious. Maybe things would be softened for a couple of hours. When you are awake after the drunken mood, problems keep coming up and depression strikes with full vigor.

I have gotten drunk over depression also. I have a very hard time dealing with life and all of the twists and truns it throws to me every day. I know exactly where you are coming from. I get so tired of not being able to enjoy life that I just wish it would all end for me soon. My life is total misery and it will never change no matter what I do.
