Not all addictions are related to depression. Once you get that tattooed in your head, only then you will make some sense. Addictions and depressions are entirely two different matter; related sometimes yes but not the same. A person who chain smokes is not necessarily depressed. There are many other cases like that. It’s time you educate yourself and try be a gentleman about it as well.

You know something, I knew this was going to happen between you and me. Guess why.

Who said they were the same thing? I never once claimed that they were. Some people just make bad choices.

Your depression was not clinical. It was a rational form of depression, directly related to your circumstances. If you suffer from clinical depression, you very rarely overcome it. It tends to be with you for life. It is neurobiological problem for the most part.

You said it yourself here and I quote, "you very rarely overcome it" which means there are cases when you do overcome it, is it not? How do you know I wasn't one of those rare ones who overcame it? You don't want to take my case seriously because I am doing so well now and also, it's suits your facking argument. I take mine very seriously because I know how close I came to things.

And how do you know it's still not with me? Maybe I've found a way to cope with it and live with it because I didn't want to give up?

That's your fat ego talking, really.

Why don't you go to bed? Isn't it awfully late for you? Oh, don't tell me - you are too depressed to go to bed now.

Because it was directly related to your circumstances. Learn to read.

You may want to think you cured yourself of clinical depression, but it just isn't the case. You don't know anything about the subject.

I don't suffer from depression, so I have no idea what you're talking about.

Just because you say so doesn't make it one either. As long as we clear on that.

It was. You just rattled off a list of things that affected your mood. You even said so yourself.

You can't have it both ways.

Being sad, eg because someone you love has died, is a normal part of being human.
Being depressed, as Clydey says, is something else altogether.
BTW it's ganja that's smoked in Jamaica and many other under-developed countries. The word is Hindi in origin suggesting long term usage.

If you feel my depression was normal because I only faced some close deaths as opposed to yours,
Opposed to mine? Fortunately, I've never suffered depression.

Clinical depression is caused by lack of dopamine in the brain. Some people have to take tablets for life to keep the brain chemistry in balance.  For the life of me I cannot understand why depression is treated as a no no, it is part of life people should be more understanding it is an illness like a physical illness.

It sounds horrible.

At least if you're depressed as a reaction to terrible events in your life, you know why you're depressed and can set yourself goals to overcome it.

Absolutely.  You can recover from traumatic life events which leave you temporarily devastated and down, but it doesn't sound as if a person can recover from clinical depression. It must be very hard to live with.
