  • Alcohol CAN save you from problems. The downside is that it creates others.
    From the perspective of a functioning alcoholic, I've been able to solve some pretty big problems after drinking. But like I said, it creates others. Forgetting the health problems, there are times where I am so unstable or feel weird because I need a drink and sometimes because of it, i don't want to go to work. so, answering your question, it depends. Some people can't handle alcohol, those are the people that drink to drown their sorrows, people like me, we use it as a tool, as a boost.

  • If anything, it makes you fall much more deeper into problems. It's could to kill off those painful emotions (sorrow) but it's only for a little while. Till you drink frequently and it becomes a problem

  • Never tried it to solve problems. I took a sip or just a little bit of alcohol (wine or what, I don't know) when I was 18 or 19 and said "Yuck!" - Never drank it again.

  • In the short term maybe yes, but if you look at the bigger picture then you see it is self destructing behavior so no. Alcohol can never solve a problem.

  • Alcohol can never save you from your problems. This is not the right word. It can make you forget for a little time but it doesn't make your problems disappear. It even makes things worse, because you're wasting your time instead of facing problems and trying to cope with them.

  • Sometimes it does, but sometimes it creates more problems ie drunk talking. Drunk talking either offends or amuses. Pray hard that it is the latter and not you rambling on about all your dirty little secrets.

  • Lol no, it's a temporary "solution" in the respect that it makes you stupid to the world around you, but it doesn't fix anything.

  • No, because alcohol usually exacerbates depression. It doesn't get to the root cause of your problems. Only a clear , alert , focused mind help you accept or resolve issues that you have

  • Nope, it's only a temporary fix. Once the hangover hits, you remember your problems and just have pain to accompany it.

  • Not really, alcohol just tends to amplify whatever I'm feeling at the moment. So if I'm sad, I will just be more sad. It's not even a temporary solution, much less so a long term one.

      Thats alright :) I know at the age of 16 there constant societal pressure to drink but only do it when your ready and if it appeals to you.

  • no.
    my ex. a functional drunk sigh, there were times he would tell me he has to drink less. I never said anything about his drinking... nice guy but, he is an ex.
    he called me 3 weeks ago, he said he won't stop.
    i know his issues... but better to keep him away. i can't help him
