What do HEthens do when they're terribly depressed?
I suffered a massive trauma a couple years ago that left me very suicidal. Eventually, (and with the help of a steady supply of marijuana) I “evened out”, but I still have a residual depression from it, and some days can be really bad. Today for example, I awoke from a really bad nightmare, and I’ve spent literally all day playing my guitar nonstop so I don’t have to think about it. Surely, there is a less crippling way to deal with depression spikes. Preferably one that doesn’t result in bloodied fingers. Suggestions?

smoke some, and go take a nice walk through a forest.
find some new music, music can treat depression up to 25%.
smoke and go run, it’s so easy and you feel so alive.
meditate and/or find yourself. good luck dude!
@clovers, So by your own admission you cannot function without it now.
Just stop smoking bro. It sounds like you’re using it as an escape. Been there, done that. Solves nothing. Just because it sucks at first doesn’t mean that it is how you’ll always feel. Try tackling your issues with a clear head for a few months and see how you go.
It gets worse for me. I go into a detrimental cycle of watching t.v. shows on Netflix. I waste way, way too much time.
But if you are reading this right now and are depressed. The cure is simple: Get off your ass and do something!
@clovers, I have a view that I call “Pre-destiny after the fact”; Before something happens you may have the potential to make it the best possible result within your influence, but once it has happened it was always meant to happen and no consideration of “what ifs” and “should haves” is going to change that destiny. All you can do is focus on doing your best of influence in every happening to come.
Go out and socialize
Swim with beautiful music playing in the background, feel your aliveness
Drugs (Psylocibin, LSD, MDMA) might help but that is your choice of course
Re-program your belief system. Create your reality. Use affirmations of what you really want and say it daily with passion. Instead of repeating in your head that you are depressed. Say that you are content. Make it a habit, and eventually your mind will take it as it’s reality.
