Alcohol (beer) is what triggered my very first depressive episode 35 years ago when I got drunk with friends. I refer to that as my "year-long hangover" because I never felt I recovered from that night out for about a year.

But on the contrary, I equate a night of getting drunk on multiple Roman Cokes (rum) a couple of years later at my sister's wedding as a "brain reset" because the day after that night, my veil of depression seemed to magically lift, and I felt more positive about life than I had in a couple of years.

My theory is that your brain has a "Reset Button", or "Reboot Button", that can be activated by various methods - alcohol, drugs, even the common cold; it's just that the brain doesn't always "reset" to the optimum levels.
