Does drinking take away your sorrows temporary?!

Question: Does drinking take away your sorrows temporary!?
I go thru so much stress in my life!. its mostly because my whole family (parents & sisters) depend on my financially and my job is very stressful!. its a good thing i have a good boyfriend that is understanding!.

when i drink, it seems that the stress goes away, why's that!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

Lol, poets and singers of songs throughout history would say that drink dulls the pain, so you're in good company!. The modern medical establishment would tell you things about how alcohol affects the neuron pathways in the brain as a depressant, doing things like causing disinhibition—inhibiting cells and in the brain which are responsible for certain higher-level functions, like behavioral inhibition and yes, emotions, including painful ones!. They would also warn about the prolonged dangers such depressant effects ultimately have on your brain, liver, and other bodily systems!. There are two sides to every story!.

Everyone knows too much alcohol can be dangerous, but, the decision is yours!. You're a big girl!. I would just encourage you to do what you want, but in an informed way!. It's up to you as a hopefully responsible individual in this world to balance the risks and rewards of drinking or any other activity you want to engage in in life!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Alcohol is a depressant!. While one or two drinks makes most people feel relaxed, more alcohol may cause feelings of anxiety, depression, and often aggression!. Alcohol’s first effect is to distort your judgement and lower you inhibition, while producing euphoria (a sense of pleasure)!. As you consume more alcohol, your coordination and perception are affected, and you can have memory blackouts!. Next your reflexes diminish, you experience confusion, stupor, and may lapse into a coma!.
Research suggests that continued alcohol use can cause depression!. Alcohol robs brain cells of water and glucose, the brain’s food, contributing to a hangover the next day!.

I drink too for the same reasons, becareful it may turn into a problem!. Drinking relaxes me, and it DOES NOT make the stress go away!. It numbs you for the moment, but when you sober up you still have to live your life!. Dont become dependant on alcohol or any other drugs!. ind a positive hobby or something!. I drink too!. Sometimes its just a little pick me up!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

You sound like my stupid brother in-law whos an asshole!. He has sooooo much **** going on in his pathetic life that he drinks and smokes until he has someone to talk to about his ****** up life!!!
The next day its doubled and hes very quite, then when it builds up again he starts to drink again!!!
Watch it!You could turn into a alcoholic
Lucky you have a supporting bf, but if you keep having drinks to solve your problems you could lose you bf!.
Good luck!!!

i've drank many times to try to drown my sorrows and I never enjoyed it and ended up not finishing it, but there's only ever been one time when I've enjoyed a drink when I was upset and that was the day my friend died, it was a pretty tasty beer I'll put it that way!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Drink dulls the senses and puts a different view on the issues, sometimes not the best way to face issues!. However if it helps you relax for a short time good, just do not become dependent on it or this will become a necessary task!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

I find drinking useless it just makes you feel sick and out of control & i really don't see how that can relieve stressWww@FoodAQ@Com

Be careful with that!. It may come to bite you!. Find a healthier way to deal with stress!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
