In the Bhagavad Gita (2:2,3) Krishna (God) speaks to the warrior Arjuna (You), who has just thrown down his weapons and refuses to fight, and says:

"Whence this lifeless dejection, Arjuna, in this hour, the hour of trial? Strong men know not despair, Arjuna, for that wins neither heaven nor earth. Fall not into degrading weakness, for this becomes not a man who is a man. Throw off this ignoble discouragement, and arise like a fire that burns all before it."

The moment you begin taking drugs to cope with life you forfeit completely your ability to grow and find the joy of life.
