  • I personally think it makes it worse because for the moment your buzzed you dont think about it. Then after you will be sick the problems will still be there. I hope that things get better. Because drinking doesnt make it go away. Good Luck to you

  • Well we all know that it doesnt solve your problems, but it sure takes the edge off for a little long as you don't make it a habit to get drunk when your depressed I don't see anything wrong with throwing yourself a little pity party every once in a blue moon....I'm sorry your feeling that way though mama....if you ever need to talk feel free to message me....I have bipolar disorder so I know my way around depression.....good luck honey

  • I have a bad habit of drinking my problems away. I'll drink to numb the pain. It doesn't solve my problems but it sure does make me forget about them for a while

  • It doesn't. Although it makes you feel good @ the moment, the problems are still there. You have to learn to deal w/ your problems sober, talk to a friend or family membesr about whatever problems your facing and about your depression, maybe they can help you through it and give you advice. Depression + Drinking = leads to Alcoholism and more problems down the roads in life. I've seen it quite a few times from a family member and a few friends. It's not a path you wanna take. SERIOUSLY!!!! HOPE THIS HELPS!

  • Someone with zero common sense. Just because you aren't thinking about them doesn't mean they aren't there.
