    Do you drown your problems with drugs or alchol?

    Too often many people look for a quick fix to escape the problems in life. It is easy to become addicted to those things that block out pain.Alchol may be legal but it is a drug none the less. I love to have an ice cold beer at the end of a work day and there is nothing wrong with that, but when chemical abuse gets out of hand you can create for yourself more problems than relief.What do you do when problems get out of hand.Is having a glass of beer or wine to unwind wrong? Or do you just prefer to drown in your sorrows.

    I would go out for a walk, talk it out to someone who will listen, get busy with something else, and then go back to the problem and try to do whatever I can to change it.

    Some problems are harder than others to solve, but there is always something we can do.

    Taking drugs or alcohol would only make the problems worse because the problems are still there and the side effects make problems look more depressing. So why make it harder.

    Once the problem is solved or at least something was done about it I can feel much better.

    Another way to see it is imagining you have more problems than you have, or imagine how worse things can be than they already are. Then you see things are not that bad.

    No. Not drugs. They cost too much to keep up with. And not alcohol. Too much is bad for you and I'm still underage. Doesn't mean I haven't had any though. I drown my problems with five things. It depends on how I upset I am, or the topic, as to which method I use.
    1. Working out.
    2. Netflix
    3. School
    4. Not eating.
    5. Books
