I don't fully : understand what you are saying? I am not sure if you feel suicidal after you have been drinking or when you are sober? But, regardless - you clearly need help. If you feel imminently suicidal then please have loved ones or friends take you to the nearest emergency room. Emergency rescue services can assist if needed. The first step is to allow someone to assist you. Don't give up.
