This is quite a common sense tip really but I think it’s actually really important.
Avoid drinking alcohol.
Don’t do it at all if you can help it.
Alcohol is a depressant.
You might think that it is your crutch and your friend but it is not.
It is a very slippery slope that will make you feel a whole lot worse.
The answers to your problems and the way to relieve your stress is not laying in the bottle of a bottle or glass.
Short term when you are having that one or two or however many drinks you might feel like your problems have been numbed but that is all just a very temporary fix and the more you drink the more depressed you will get and you will be a sad drunk crying mess and that is the truth.
When you sober up you will feel even more depressed and be hungover and feel like shit and possibly just repeat the whole process.
It is a depressant and take it from me because I know just how fucked up going down this route is!
Avoid alcohol completely it is the very last thing you need in your life if you are suffering from depression.
Your problems will not magically disappear, alcohol is not the answer
If you are reading this to help someone who is depressed don’t try dragging them out for a drink!
Something nice to eat is a whole lot healthier and satisfying.
