    Do you ever drink because you need to mask your feelings?

    So I just found out that this guy I am obsessed with and thought liked me is dating someone. All I could do to cope in the moment was drink a lot.

    Now I am tipsy and when I wake up tomorrow probably will be kind of sad.

    Has this ever happend to you? How do you deal?

    I've done this before yes. I think sometimes that feeling of falling for someone is kind of like a high, and it's almost like coming down off that high, and just having pain there is a bit of a shock to the system, so all it is is just replacing it with another high. It can kind of take your mind off it temporarily too. Also, if you're repressing painful emotions, it can allow it to come to the surface sometimes.

    Sometimes, maybe a good binge is needed if it will help you get over someone faster, although it's not the best idea. And it's not a good solution long term either.

    No, I use chocolate. Makes you fat and destroys your teeth. Just can't stand the revolting taste and stink of alcohol.

    I did last night, because I felt like the situation was out of my control and wanted a distraction from it =_= not recommended. My stomach still feels all fucked up.

    I do this a lot......I should stop, but sometimes it's too hard to deal with being sad.

    I usually drink in social settings to be more outgoing, I find that drinking when sad only makes it worse.

    Sadly I started drinking exactly for that reason. Now I do it because its delicious and good for you.
