Whether it is real life event, or a drama from television. People who has deep depression, they always go through alcohol, beers as the first solution. Why? I drink beer occasionally, but not too addicted to it. I don't really like the taste of beer. But why? It only numb your brain temporarily only. After that, you might get serious headache.

Well most of them either smoke or drink to get out of the depression..but its also said medically that smoking increases depression and tend to smoke more which is bad for health!

It is relativly cheap, legal, and socially acceptable to drink. That being said, drinking is actually a downer and depresses the drinker more.
