Binoo Posted May 22, 2010 Share Posted May 22, 2010 While I've got this on my mind, does anyone else experience extremely severe lows after drinking alcohol? I know alcohol is a depressant but I don't know anyone personally that is as affected by it as I am. I never used to drink but recently I've been doing it about once a week or once every two weeks. I don't get obnoxiously drunk but I've gotten pretty buzzed from it. The more alcohol I consume in a night, the longer I feel sad. And not just kind of sad but depressed can't get out of bed want to commit suicide sad. I used to go out drinking once in awhile with my ex and I always thought he was the cause of the mood swings but I stopped drinking, anyway. And just recently I started drinking because my current boyfriend likes to go out to bars once in awhile and that sort of thing. I've just known people to think I'm being prudish or stuck up for not wanting to drink and I'll admit I don't enjoy being around drunk people at all. But the reason why I had stopped was because it was affecting my mood. I drank again last week and I ended up cutting myself. And my boyfriend found me hanging over the side of the balcony. Not completely over but normally I wouldn't even look over the edge because I have such terrible vertigo. I spent the rest of the week completely moody and lying on the floor crying. Although I've been going through a stressful time lately I can normally keep it together better than that. Obviously the most affective way to stop this sort of thing is to stop drinking which is what I plan to do. But I'm just wondering if anyone else experiences these kinds of mood swings while drinking? Link to comment
