During the night, I am sad. All other times, I am perfectly fine.

In the mornings, I am perfectly fine. I can go through all range of emotions, from joy to anger to even stupid, or sad.
However at night, my emotion swings terribly and stays sad until I sleep.
Is it common for people to experience feelings of depression when it is nighttime? Is it less common for people to experience these feelings every night to the point where one must cry tears or drink themselves to sleep (which is unhealthy due to my tolerance for the stuff and my main reason for wanting to stop this behavior. Currently dealing with the alcohol by removing all alcohol in my house.)
If it is a common phenomena, then why does it occur? How does my environment (either inner or outer) affect this?
And finally, solutions or treatments, other than the obvious "Go see an expert for this". I find it very hard to share this problem with people I know, since I feel unaffected during the day, however when night comes I feel like utter sh*t and am more open to expressing my feelings to those who would listen (which is growing smaller due to the sh*t my close friends have to deal with, another reason why I want to stop this behavior).
A lot of the feelings of "down-ness" end up in me feeling confused about myself, leading me to post online for answers. I plan on seeing an expert (need your help on deciding on who to see, psychiatrist, psychologist, therapist, etc.) and telling them of my problem. What sucks is that I always have a hard time explaining this face-to-face as well. But I'm going to have to try and trudge through it.
