Many people come home and pour an alcoholic drink to make themselves feel better after a traumatic event or a hard day at work. Some who experience symptoms of depression will also self-medicate those feelings with alcohol.

Although alcohol is used to make many people feel better about themselves or a rough situation they are in, alcohol is actually a depressant, making you more depressed in the short-term, but has not been proven to actually cause depression amongst drinkers. Alcohol interferes with the body’s natural processes and will make you sleepy, dehydrated, and may even cause you to pass out.
