using Benadryl to get high - July 6th 2012, 07:17 AM

I have been using Benadryl to get high for a while now. I have a serious depression problem and this helps me escape reality. I use it because it is cheap and easy access. A few minutes ago i downed [Edited by Kitty.] Benadryls. I really need help. I have also tried suicide by taking about [Edited by Kitty.] Benadryls and some other medications but it did not work. I need help or advice. I cant talk to my family or friends because none of them understand. I hate what i am doing

First, you do realize just because it stays in your medicine drawer it is still just as harmful as any street drug, right?

You also realize that this can, and likely will end up killing your liver?

You need to just stop. If you don't want to talk to friends or family, or a professional (all of which I recommend) the only alternative is just to quit cold turkey.

You will die if you continue this behavior. I cannot stress this enough. It's important you seek help for our depression and addiction issues, instead of harming yourself.

Hi there, welcome to TeenHelp, I hope you enjoy it here.

Depression is a very scary thing it can make one feel isolated and alone, with no sense of direction or guidance to turn to. You and I know and do not believe that these pills will correct any issues you have. If nothing else they'll just compound the problem, do yourself a favour and nip it in the bud. People forget that they are granted one life and of that time on earth some people choose to waste it. There is help and TeenHelp is here for you, I strongly advise you see a doctor or make yourself throw up those tablets. Taking an overdose of medication can be lethal just because you got away with it once doesn't mean you'll be so lucky the next time.

In life we are faced with issues regardless of what they maybe. The measure of a person is how they handle the hard times and over come their own mistakes and issues. Please take it from me that the road your going down will surely leave you 6 feet under, its never to late to make changes. It all comes down to the individual and how badly you want to better your situation and make your life worth living. Suicide is an escape route and it is not a good avenue to go down. I'd strongly suggest you talk to your parents and tell them the issues your struggling with and hopefully they'll beadle to understand your situation.

I want what is best for you and I truly hope your able to find some kind of connection with your goals and ambitions, I believe in life you need a target otherwise theirs no point in waking up every morning but that lies with you. If you ever need anything please don't hesitate to message me.

TeenHelp Support Staff,

Growng up I also fought long and difficult battles with depression and suicide, so I really do understand where you are comming from.

Like others have said though, taking benadryl or any other drug as a an escape is never right or best thing to do. I know how taking them heightens chemicals in our brains and gives you a feeling of tempoary escape; but those drugs contain much more harmful issues that make everything worse than before.

There are much safer ways out there to help combat depression than getting high; and being a member here is one really great way. We have programs like Help Link, Live Help that can serve as a good outlet to rant and release frustration, there we can also help you get safer coping skills. Like Ryan said this site and every single one of it's volunteers is here for you and everyone else struggling. We dedicate our time just to help others back to success, many of us have faced exactly what your going through and are here today sharing success and happiness; something that you can also achieve without drugs or illegal substances.

Please do use a programs like help link and live help or even pm anyone on here! Together you can do it!
