Honestly this is terrible advice. Don't spend your time escaping life when you could learn to love or at least appreciate it, especially when you don't already have an unhealthy dependence on one of those 3 things.

I read your comment the same way that a lot of other people read it, clearly. Sometimes what you want to convey in a message is not what is interpreted by the reader. You commented on a post of someone in distress by asking if they have tried things that many people are dependent on and use for escapism. I didn't put words in your mouth and didn't need to, I think most people would read that in a negative way without reading your responses to me where you elaborated your thoughts.

Your original comment was overly simplified and easily read as suggesting things that can become a dependency for people with mental health struggles. Maybe try to give a more nuanced take that doesn't leave room for misinterpretation if you are going to get bent out of shape when people misinterpret it.
