The 64-year-old told the Sunday Independent: 'I’d make lists and keep working at the writing of those lists until the upside overwhelmed the downside.
'In my case I wrote down "what’s the upside of being alive?" And "what’s the downside of it?"
'Was it ever very serious? Overall, no. In that moment though, perhaps it was.'
The comments come five months after Geldof said he found the tragic incident, which saw Peaches overdose on heroin, 'unbearable'.
He revealed he 'half-expected' her death, adding to RTE Radio 1: 'The way she was carrying on, there's nothing you can do about it.'
The musician has also previously described how he goes ‘over and over’ the incident, wondering if he could have saved her.
'You go back, you go over, you go over. What could you have done? You do as much as you can.'
Peaches left behind her two children - Astala, three, and Phaedra, two - and husband Thomas Cohen.
Mr Cohen, a musician, is now raising the children and has been pictured on a number of occasions with Geldof and his extended family.
Peaches' death was a haunting reflection of that of her own mother Paula, who died from a heroin overdose in 2000 at the age of 41.
