    Why are all the great writers alcoholics?

    Hemingway, Faulkner, Bukowski, Thompson, etc...

    I guess its like how most of the best comedians are bipolar or have manic depression.

    High IQ = High self awareness and more likely to experience anxiety/stress/depression - which would lead to higher self medication (drogs + alcohol)

    Stupid people aren't aware theyre stupid and have barely any problems, except for the ones that are self inflicted and even then they have a chip on their shoulder and blame everyone else for their own inadequacies


    I've (sadly) come across a lot of very stupid people and they have the ****tiest lives imaginable, but they dont even seem to be aware and live in blissful ignorance.

    Same reason so many musical artists are junkies. I think depressioncels are blessed with creativity as a sort of redeeming quality. Either that or people who've lived hard, depressing lives develop a greater ability to empathize and express themselves. I wonder if being kind of a recluse has something to do with it as well. If you read about a lot of virtuoso guitarists, for example, you'll see that a lot of them talk about spending like 5 hours a day in their room just playing non-stop. If you have no friends/life outside of your passion, you can devote a lot more time to it. I think it's a combination of those two factors (greater empathy and putting in the hours due to lack of alternatives).

    Everyone should alter their consciousness/brain chemistry every once in awhile, helps keep perspective. People lose sight of their cope. Obviously not to the point of abuse

    Being depressed and having lived a hard life, as stupid as it sounds, I never correlated that to why I can emphasize with people so well. Cool thought bro, I love opening new paths in my mind.

    I got really good at guitar, and yes it took a lot of practice, but it wasn't because of a lack of social options. I know a lot of people like me, it's pretty easy to balance.

    And to op, being an alcoholic and writer myself, I write my best lyrics when buzzed. Im not sure it has to do with being a drunk, but more to do with that's when my mind opens more, when I'm comfortable.

    Thanks, brah. I've come across that idea a couple times myself. The rationale, as I understand it, is that since you know what it means to suffer, you are able extend a certain level of patience and understanding to others that you encounter. I guess because you know how terrible it is to be down/depressed/lonely so you try to help others who are in the same situation.

    I didn't mean that lack of social options is the only reason that people become great at guitar (or other artistic pursuits) but I think it contributes. If you have no social opportunities and are lonely, it is easier to become consumed by/obsessed with your hobbies.

    As to your last point, check out the video I linked. They make an interesting claim about why depressive types tend to be creative. Basically, depressed people tend to ruminate, and in doing so are able to sit with questions for longer and come up with novel ideas.

    I agree 100% with your first paragraph, but it's annoying when people complain about trivial things and focus on them and it seems to consume them. It's already taken control of them though, all you can do is try to help them realize it's not as big of a deal as they think it is and try to find the bigger problem. With most people it's hard though.

    I agree with your last point. When I meet a truly depressed person, they usually have a cool output that they put alot of time into, and same with perspectives of the world.

    On the same note, once you come to grasp with what you're going through, and why, and the "why's" of might be what caused your chemical imbalance, you do sit and analyze things, and ask questions. It's a weird thing, but healthy and makes people smarter for actually thinking and realize why the things that are happening to them are happening.

    You seem like a smart dude.

    Yup. It's so easy to lose track of how much you're "on rails" and don't stop to think about how lifeless your day-to-day routine is until you get fukkin high or drunk srs.

    Im not a junkie by any means, but sampling different things can make you realize things you wouldn't sober. If you don't abuse certain things, they really can open your mind.

    Good post.

    Write drunk, edit sober -Hemingway

    Tons of great writers where not alcoholics though and for many, alcohol was a good thing - it become their doom. It wasn’t good for them, nor their writing. F. Scott Fitzgerald was destroyed by alcohol. Keourac died from esophageal hemorrhage caused by cirrhosis (basically a liver failure causes by long time alcohol abuse).

    I also know, that Kafka and Henry David Thoreau NEVER touched alcohol (not sure of the English word is called for those who abstain from alcohol, but yeah). So yeah, overall I think it’s a myth.

With most people it's hard though.

    I agree with your last point. When I meet a truly depressed person, they usually have a cool output that they put alot of time into, and same with perspectives of the world.

    On the same note, once you come to grasp with what you're going through, and why, and the "why's" of might be what caused your chemical imbalance, you do sit and analyze things, and ask questions. It's a weird thing, but healthy and makes people smarter for actually thinking and realize why the things that are happening to them are happening.

    You seem like a smart dude.
    I definitely think that having experienced certain hardships gives you perspective that many others, particularly young people, lack.

    Yeah, totally agree with the ruminating part. It can lead to some sort of enlightenment since it's basically like meditation in a way. I find that I spend a lot of time wondering how things came to be, and every now and again I get some sort of breakthrough that gives me a slightly better understanding of myself. There's definitely a lot of value in introspection.

    And thanks, bro. I really appreciate the kind words.

    Interesting, didn't know that about Thoreau and Kafka. I can see it for HDT, though. He seems like the type who was very into living naturally and in the moment, if that makes sense. The kind of guy I would imagine would say that alcohol clouds judgment and prevents you from experiencing things firsthand. That's the impression I get of him.

    I think the word for someone who doesn't drink is "teetotal".

    Troubled people have a story to tell and the urge to tell the world.
    Troubled people also often go for drugs and alcohol to make it through the day.

    It's funny you think that.

    Troubled people do have a story to tell, just like everyone. Everyone has gone through hardship. It's part of being human.

    I don't think troubled people go to substances to make it, some of us are just stronger mentally in different ways. Just like different outlets help us cope in different ways. Just don't let it control you.

    And if that outlet being alcohol or something else helps you be creative or feel better, who cares if it makes you feel better and helps you?

    I have a lot of views on this so please don't try to argue my point on that cause I don't care to.

    Teetotaler is the English term for it. They use other words in other countries though. Pioneer in Ireland for example.
