Hi anybody feeling very down and low I would caution against using alcohol as a painkiller
I did this for years and ended up more or less an alcoholic.I did not drink for pleasure but to cut out the repetetive bad thoughts that comes with depression . of course it only works for a short while and the rest of the time you feel much worse.
People who drink too much nearly always feel guilty and depressed to some extent. Self medicating with alcohol is absolutly the wrong thing.
Getting off the booze will be the best thing if your a drinker and depressed
From one who knows
