    Talk things out with them, see what's wrong.
    If they aren't willing to talk, then just give them space until they calm down and try to comfort them afterwards.

    Give them ice cream and/or alcohol

    Sometimes the crying is caused by one of those things so I give them the other one

    Yeah; but no, she was already under the influence, don’t think giving her more would have helped, but I bet ice cream would have lmaoo

    Someone say Alcohol?

    Anyway, comfort is the big one. Make sure that the person who is crying understands that you are there for them. Someone to talk to without any kind of judgement.
    I sometimes don't know how to begin comforting, especially if I feel it would make it more awkward than anything else. The best phrase would be;
    "I don't know what's going on, but talk to me, I may be able to help"
    Icecream is a big one, but so is a glass of water. Water is a way to get someone distracted in a slightly, which allows them to calm down a bit before talking about issues that are bothering them. It also shows that you are there to help, not to judge.

    if it was me crying, punching me is probably the best way to get me to stop, not even lying lmao
