A guy I used to know got in that system. First part of the spiral was his divorce. Then his job was eliminated in 2008 and he lost most of his 401k. He moved in with his girlfriend but started drinking and she threw him out. He drank alone in an apartment and would black out and go for drives and got caught drunk driving. Now has suspended license and has to attend classes and pay for them and he really doesn't have the time for the classes or the money. Just trying to keep his job. Barely scraping by and you could tell he was becoming unhinged more and more. One night he decided to go out driving and was totally plastered and caused and accident that he was going to see jail time which was going to mean he loses his job. His parents were quite wealthy but were not offering him anything and really couldn't do much for him. He ended up killing himself and the problems all went away.
