Everyone is different, but it never hurts to check in with yourself about your drinking — especially if you're prone to depression. “When you’re feeling depressed and you drink, that’s when it becomes dangerous, because the protective walls come tumbling down,” Jan Collins-Eaglin, PhD, told BuzzFeed Health. “Drinking is not going to make it better. If anything, it’s going to make it worse.”
If that sounds like you, maybe cut back for a bit and see if you see an improvement in how you're feeling, or maybe commit to only drinking in certain settings, like on Wine Wednesday with your best friend.
