Q Even people who are mentally healthy become depressed occasionally, and most people who suffer from depression have happy times. The trick is to maximize the happy times for both types, preferably without the use of exogenous, mind-altering drugs like alcohol, nicotine, tetrahydrocannabinol, Prozac and E or the like. (Of necessity, I'll make an exception for caffeine from coffee and theophylline from tea.)

I prefer the endorphins that my own brain can be induced to produce by a bit of vigorous exercise, anytime and anyplace, day or night. These are by far the most powerful, safest and least costly antidepressants.

Although a joint or two, or a glass or two of merlot, and often espresso with good company helps too.
