Why do I get depressed when I drink?
Most people I know who drink are "happy drunks." They giggle away, spew out random comments, talk/yell to everyone, and much more. After a lot of drinks, they'll occasionally start crying or whining about their problems.
The first 2 or 3 times I drank I was a "happy drunk" (this may have been because I had drank caffeine prior). However, the past few times(sometimes after 1 drink, sometimes after a few), the alcohol has had exactly the opposite effect on me. I end up talking much less, I just end up zoning out and thinking about my problems immediately, bypassing the "happy drunk" altogether. If I do talk, all I want to do is whine about my personal problems. Just feeling overall withdrawn, bitter and depressed.
Why is it having this effect on me, the complete opposite as everyone else?
