Why do many intelligent people end up depressed/hopeless and have a drug or alcohol problem when they get older?

Some of the people I've met with drug problems weren't very intelligent.

They get a lot of expectations put on them. And it cracks them.

Because they are smart enough to see the world as it really is and as they get older their hope that anything will change diminishes and it makes them depressed. Or maybe being in their own head too much and over thinking makes them depressed.

Because greatness of mind comes at a cost. It's always a trade-off in life.
