Agree 1000%

People aren't all created equally and some people just don't have the will/strength to overcome things. They turn to alcohol/drugs/whatever to escape the pressure.

It's not up to us to judge them it's not our lives, let them be and deal with their life as it is, sometimes no matter what you do you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink.

We all have our inner demons, who's better at controlling them is another story completely.

Every human being has a fight or flight response to things.

A good buddy of mine was in the same industry as me. Talented guy, as I am. Things got rough for both of us at one point, and we were both laid off.

That was several years ago. He has never recovered. It's stunning. I've bounced back after some turbulence, but, eventually found my path. It's amazing to me how he's still struggling with something that happened 8 years ago. I have tried to help him, but he doesn't seem interested. I think his confidence is shot.

I do not say that to judge him. Even he admitted that he flees when things get rough.

My point is, when things go bad, either people bounce back and try and recover, or they stay down and get mired in depression. Not sure what the answer is.
