Hey people, i got a problem, i always feel like kinda depressed all the time, every weekend i get drunk as theres nowt else to do, i stay in alone all week apart from when im at work of course.

but i feel like i aint getting nowhere in life. i have some savings but im supposed to be going amsterdam next month.

is it worth it though?

Spending about 600 pounds for a weekend of beer and other things (im sure u know what)

beer makes me feel sick all the time my hangovers last 2 to 3 days now because ive been a heavy binge drinker for a long time, im always feeling unhappy.

ive recently give up smoking about a month ago i should feel better about myself but i dont.

hard to explain, but should spend loadsa money on a weekend away. or shud i buy a 32 inch t.v for my room and have something to show for my hard work as ive been doing a fair bit of overtime?

anyone who can help feel free :) as i dont know what to do with myself

I think if you're really feeling as depressed as you say your are then you should start by stopping the drinking for a while (if not permanently) since not only will getting drunk do nothing for your state of mind but its probably shredding your liver! Seriously, I think it'll make you feel better.

You can always start trying to make yourself feel better by finding something more consructive to do that just sitting drinking. Start a new hobby, get a passion for something!

Failing that if you still feel depressed (And if it gets any worse) and you feel you've tried everything then I would maybe consider seeing someone about it (professionally I mean)

Hope that helped, KTR x

i could get a new hobby other than getting wasted,

shame to spend money i work for on damaging myself!

maybe i should look into having a quieter life, maybe get a girlfriend as recently liked being single?

Sounds like you may have a drinking problem.  Do you feel like you cannot stop drinking?  If so, that may be a sure sign of a drinking problem.  You may be drinking to deal with your depression also - sort of self medicating.  You may need to consult a doctor or social worker for advice on the drinking and depression.
I would recommend getting some exercise like hiking, cycling, swimming, whatever interests you.  This may open up ways for you to meet others and give yourself a better sense of well being.
