Recovering from depression can be a difficult challenge. At times you may feel overwhelmed. You may be tempted to drink or use drugs to try to escape depression symptoms. But using drugs or alcohol can make your depression worse.
Many people can enjoy a drink now and then, but alcohol can be dangerous. It can cause accidents and health problems, and it can lead to addiction. Some people should not drink at all. They may not be able to control their drinking, or they may have health problems that alcohol makes worse.
When you are pregnant, everything you eat, drink, or take into your body may affect your unborn baby. So try to eat healthy foods and drink lots of water while you are pregnant.
