A sign that I should give up alcohol?

    I don't think alcohol has ever really suited me... I'm sure it's the same for many people but it takes me ages to recover from a night out and I feel like crap for a few days after a night out. More importantly, my brother passed away over one year ago and ever since his death, no matter how good a night I've had, whenever I get home I just think about him and cry myself to sleep, like literally sobbing. I know I hide my pain a lot but it's not as if I can mope around all the time so I guess that's when my suppressed emotions come out. It's been happening for over a year now though and I feel like it could be a big indicator that I should give up alcohol or at least getting plastered/ going on nights out. Has anyone else experienced something similar?

    If the cons of drinking outweigh the pros, then it's time to lay off the booze.

    As you're asking the question here, I'm sure you know the right answer yourself.

    I'm sorry for your grievances and I hope you feel better soon.
