That's quite philosophical Tatsy but I think it may be true. The advantage or 'happiness' we can gain from feeling hopeless is that we feel we can allow ourselves not to feel responsible for a while. I think it's very understandable to want that when we are going through a difficult patch.

Could your happier option be now to stop drinking because you would prefer that to the 'perverted pleasure' you've identified?
