    Before going uni i never drunk. I feel that all of my flatmates who are regular outgoers and regular drinkers have or have had depression as a result. After nights out drinking, i feel really down and unsociable which lasts couple of days. I feel that ofc u will most probably have a better time drunk but its not that better off if you are sociable and sober anyways.

    Plenty of people drink on a regular and or social basis and have no problems. They do it becayse they enjoy it.

    Are you a doctor? How come you cna diagnose their depression as being down to alcohol?

    If it makes you feel really bad, then why drink? Especially so if you are sociable and have a good time without it anyway.

    So to answer your questions.
    1. You dont need to drink to go out or enjoy yourselves. Doesnt mean some people cant prefer or enjoy it.
    2. More complicated, but overall I would say no. Most people can control their drinking.

    I already know that, but that tends to be when you have a serious rinking condition or pre existing depression. Its perfectly possible to enjoy social drinking without suffering depression.

    no you don't have to
    most people do it due to peer pressure or because they are under the assumption that you can only have fun if you are stinking drunk but thats actually not true

    if you enjoy a drink then drink sensibly please, don't wanna end up in the wrong place not knowing what you did the night before
    and if you don't like to drink then just don't, **** what everyone else tells you to do. no one can force you.

    If you don't want to drink, don't drink. It really is that simple. You can still go out and socialise.
