Another reason I wouldn’t tell people how I’ve become depressed, or when I became depressed, is because I have felt depressed, and had suicidal thoughts since I was seven years old, and I don’t really know what it’s like not to be. When I have told people about that in the past, it seemed like they didn’t believe me, or that because I only had “suicidal thoughts”, and that I wouldn’t act on them, people would think that it wasn’t real, or that it wasn’t that bad. When I tell people, they might think that I am doing it for attention, because usually whenever someone tries to tell people how they feel, it comes out as weak, or that they should be keeping that to themselves, or fake because it’s “just for attention.

    If an individual does not believe that substance abuse is a concern they will most likely continue the behavior. Denial is normal in most cases though. Addicts will tend to deny that something is wrong with them, although it is obvious to everyone else. The individual will have many explanations explaining why their life is so troubled, while denial is when they are unable to notice the real cause.
