I'm looking for a manga that kinda follows the main character through his life. But it has to focus on the bad sides of life, like abuse, drugs, alcohol, violence, bad friends, maybe death of important people, and other drama/tragedy stuff. I'm in the mood to read some dark stuff bigrazz

I don't care about genre, so it can be everything. But it has to be a male main character. I hope there is something like this. Thanks!

Berserk is exactly what you're looking for.

Well, if you read shounen ai/yaoi, you might like Acid town.

I'd suggest looking for some 90s mangas for that. May be just me but well, that's the impression I get.

But anyways:
Cantarella
God Child
Vassalord
Akusaga
Corsair
Pet Shop of Horrors
Wild Adapter and maybe some of Minekura-sensei's other works.
The Ravages of Time maybe... can be considered somewhat dark seeing as it lacks the bright points mangas usually have. Probably cause they didn't alter history. IDK since I have no idea about the original anyways.

BEWARE OF YAOI! lol well... yea.

Thank you all! I think I've read two of the manga's you mentioned, but haven't read the other.
And shounen-ai/yaoi doesn't bother me at all. I think I like almost all genres. If there are more manga's, tell me. So, thanks again! biggrin

Coponicus no Kokyuu
Goth is dark. It's not incredibly dark though.
Shiiku Gakari Rika
Double Mints dark. Opinion depends on how dark though.
Black Lagoon I thought it was dark.

Not Simple - One of the best series I've ever read, and fits just about everything you mentioned.

Nijigahara Holograph - This has multiple protagonists (the nominal protagonist is male), and it's fairly dark throughout.

I don't know of any aside the ones mentioned above.
You may want to try a genre search including seinin and something like tragedy or drama
