I've seen threads where people lament their daily consumption of cannabis. Is it a thing or is it some broscience?
I smoke daily just because I feel mad depressed without it, but I'm considering a smoke break. Maybe I should socially isolate myself for a week without weed or nicotine just for fun :/ Maybe I'm not in such a good place right now.

Smoking everyday always helped me. Weed, back when I could smoke it, always had nothing but positive effects so long as I wasn't trying it for the first time after a long break. Sometimes doing that could lead to those times where you're infamously violently too high for a while.

But if I was smoking good shit 3-6 times a day, I was more easily able to deal with and think about my problems--usually feeling instantly better about anything bothering me a lot instantly after smoking and realizing I was taking things way too seriously and thing were how they were and I needed to approach things in a way that benefited me most even if it was uncomfortable. I also didn't suffer from near as much social anxiety and stopped hating people for merely existing in front of me (had severe anger issues). I don't have these issues really any more so things are fine, but I'm one of those people who never had negative effects from smoking all the time except for blowing all my fuckin cash on it.

Also, it's not uncommon to feel depressed after quitting a drug that seems to help with it, weed was the ultimate antidepressant for me too. In my experience, quitting for well over 2 months allows your brain to adjust back, but before then it's not wise to judge how depressed you are and say you need to smoke because it's helping. It's been the case with many of the drugs I've done that I've thought that way and it turned out the drugs were making me more depressed after regular usage than I was giving them credit for. I was 100% convinced I was just like that, and things at least got somewhat better after being off for an extended period of time (the only thing was I rarely used to stop drug use for any kind of extended period of time). At least, far more manageable than I thought it'd be.

Weed made me happier, more social and a more well-rounded person for the first couple years. Over time it just started to enable my anti-social tendencies and helped me not give a shit that I was going absolutely nowhere in life. It affects everyone differently and you have to find what is right for you.
What I can say is that imposing social isolation on yourself is literally always a bad idea and cannot possibly lead to anything good.

Weed is rarely the cause of the problem however OP you practically spelled it out in your OP.

It is an anti depressant and people smoke it instead of actually dealing with what's making them miserable. It doesn't make you lonely as much as make being lonely easier so you're less motivated to fix it.

I very suddenly lost my connect 9 months ago and went from smoking every day to dry. I was only smoking it in the evening after I got back from the gym and I can see it didn't affect me negatively. It did however make it okay to be as antisocial as I am and it shouldn't be okay to have such a nonexistent social life. Of course since then my efforts have failed and I feel like I could really use it in the short run. But odds are I'd neglect my duty to myself to double the fuck back down and start arranging more shit.

Let's kill ourselves. No but seriously.

I cant tell the one I still like, I like her, cause 3 years ago I tried to kiss her and havnt seen her since. We get on and were talking online the other night. I get this 'Im fucked up and dont want to fuck your life up' vibe from her, maybe she likes me too but I dont know, she's so aloof. The thing is, she reminds me of the love interest of the main character in this story I wrote years ago, before I met her. Over time I have become this person, and meeting her, its like we are the same characters in an alternate reality. They have this kinda just friends thing going on in the story too. If only I could read her the story and see if she'd see the similarity. Then maybe she'd realise how I feel about her, and that we too can be saved.
She wont message me today, I know.

Dude, just get over her. And don't tell me you can't do it; just have some self control and don't look at pictures of her or interact with her. You'll get over her sooner than you think. And don't show her that story to her unless she's the kind of person who would be into that. It might come off more creepy that you're projecting a fictional personality onto her than it will come off romantic, if that makes any sense.

I probably am projecting but yeah, shes gotta come to me and I dont think thatll happen.

Yeah, if she acted really offended when you tried to kiss her then you probably don't have much of a chance. I don't think I'd want a prudish girl like that anyway TBH. My best advice is to try to get on with your life, and if you meet enough people then you will just forget about her. Don't try to find girls that imitate her; _replace_ her with someone better.

I think if you still like her, definitely periodically reach out to her, but don't get your hopes up. If she is coming from that perspective, it's possible she won't respond well for a while even if she does kind of like you. I'm actually in the middle of being that way with a girl that likes me, mostly because we already went out once and I'm pretty sure my inadequacies at the time are what led to how short our relationship was. Even though she's acting super flirtatious and interested again, even though I'm mentally in a better place now, I'm not with my life and it keeps me from actually wanting to try again, especially since she's never been someone I've had a real crush on or anything. I like things about her and she's physically attractive, but right now I don't know how well I could commit to anything and that stops me from showing interest again beyond being "friends".

So, if she's in a similar place, unless you show some overwhelming interest and really let her talk to you about her problems or something and she just kinda realizes one day you literally don't give a shit and she's not saving you anything by not being with you, she's probably going to remain aloof. The girl that likes me would listen if I talked, but doesn't try very hard to actually keep contact necessarily (which I might have taught her to do with my own behavior, and she's a bit more traditional in the sense that she relies on the guy showing interest in her to really keep up contact), so right now I keep the thought of being with her again out of my mind. She isn't all that aware of how things are for me now, and I'm afraid it's a lot worse than she knows or expects, so again it only reinforces my decision not to pursue her.

Doesn't feel right being on the giving end of an emotional shitstorm. It's usually me getting fucked over. Couple of months ago, just after moving the city I live in now, I started talking to this girl online. I thought she was pretty cute, was into the same stuff as me, had a good sense of humour. So for a few days I went for it. Until (and this makes me feel awful in itself) we video chatted and I realised she wasn't nearly as attractive as her pictures made her look. She's fairly overweight and as much as I want to find her attractive, I can't force myself to. And upon getting to know her slightly better I've realised that her personality isn't as attractive as I thought it was either. I just don't see us ever being a good couple.

So from then I started trying to systematically withdraw from the situation. She was, and to some degree still is crazily into me, always telling me how gorgeous and funny and cute I am with me hardly ever returning the compliments. I told her multiple times that I don't want a girlfriend, but she insisted on coming to my city to meet me. Being the sex-starved piece of desperate shit I am, I slept with her. She brought me a PS4 game when she first properly met me and has lent me £300 towards a car I'm meant to be buying in a week (which I'd like to add whether she was my friend, girlfriend, enemy because I broke her fucking heart I have every intention of paying her back every penny and then some). And I wonder if this generosity is characteristic or she's just using excessive generosity to try and make me want to be with her. We're still not together, but I think she's just saying she's okay with a casual sex type situation in the hope that I'll eventually wanna get with her. But I don't even want that. I want it to stop, I feel guilty and wrong for last time and I don't want it to happen again. I'd gladly be friends with her because she's a nice girl, but that's all I want. But I can't think of any words I can use to say this without hurting her. She'll be hurt and confused and upset wondering why I slept with her if I'm not actually into her.

I'm such a cunt. I'm not loo…

Don't sweat it man. Just try to let her down easily. If she keeps contacting you then just give her short answers and cut off the convos after a couple of messages. Not much else you can do without making her feel bad. She'll still probably be hurt/confused, but it's better than stringing her along and doing more damage. Plenty of people get into situations like this, and you're not really asshole for doing that. I've been much more of an asshole to girls I've slept with before, trust me. I have reasons to feel guilty; you don't.

I would say this, beating yourself up achieves nothing. Sure you feel bad, you fucked up. But everyone fucks up. What's important is you learn from this. First of all try to make the best of this situation for all concerned. Secondly try to work out what you could do should events start to play out like this again, to avoid this.

Don't be one of those people who berates themselves then just keeps doing the same shit. It's far more important that you sincerely want to get it right next time than you wail and gnash your teeth. A lot of people make all the noise but when the times comes to act they don't.

As far as your "shallowness" goes the thing about this that most people actually care about physical attraction. And you have to be honest with yourself. You both deserve better than a relationship in which one partner does not want to have sex. I'm not saying everyone should be aiming for the hottest thing ever but you've got to want to fuck, kiss and generally press yourself up against a person. What makes someone shallow is when they become too hung up on this, they ignore things like whether they enjoy hanging out and if that person is a decent or healthy individual or turn down people who are great but only "attractive enough". It's not easy to get entirely right even if you wan to though. It's just what people. I don't like it but it's us. I lost 140 pounds because I had to accept the truth. Then I realised it wouldn't save me from myself and would always be repulsive to women but hey at least my athsma's gone, I fit into normal clothes, don't feel self conscious in public and EVERYTHING is easier.

Interestingly usually the first rule of internet "dating" is meet someone before getting attached. Usually because they won't want to meet if they're fake but in this case it's her who would have been protected so it protects the other person too.

Anyway what the other guy said about let her down gently. Don't be too gentle. Dragging shit out, giving her false hope, giving her anything remotely ambiguous or "this might change" even that could be interpreted that way under cert…

The fact you feel bad about it means you aren't a shit person. There's nothing wrong with having preferences, but it's different if you go about this feeling there isn't anything wrong with just shitting on somebody for their appearance and don't respect her as a person. You obviously have a healthy level of respect for her as a human being, but you can't change how you feel. Someone isn't entitled to sex or being with you, you know? I think you're perfectly fine in this situation, even if I may have personally handled it differently (not saying I necessarily would have, everybody's different though so it's just likely I probably would have, and same goes for everyone else--it's okay for you to be you mane).

The things I do; nobody really needs to understand why I do them. As long as they just understand that I did what I did for the sole purpose of satisfying my own carnal desire.
An urge that I was brought into this world with. The sole reason for an existence such as my own can be summed up as a "want".

The root of my irrationally hedonistic mentality is unknown to myself, but maybe an individual looking at me would be able to discern its cause. Maybe this is why I limit my interactions the the bare minimum, I think I might be scared of finding out about myself.

My thoughts are jumpy. I feel electrical, well my brain does. It's not very comfortable.

They often say that it's imperative to see from another perspective from time to time. Who's they? I don't have the faintest idea. I just know that I say "I" a lot, and I don't understand why it causes me so much frustration. Okay, I'm going to vent, I hope it works.

Maybe my lack of diligence when it comes to things like research and self improvement has caused such a disgusting habit.

I don't know why I'm writing this shit on a bbs board right now, but every time I press in a key I feel a bit lighter inside. It's 6:31pm right now and I should be studying beacause... At this moment, out there in the world, some young adult is thinking about how he or she wants to attend school and receive a proper education, for the purpose of bettering their life. And here I am, the little shit, squandering my opportunity at a better future. Or maybe I just said that to trick myself into thinking that I'm able to adopt an ethically correct mindset like that, but it would only be for the purpose of gaining approval? How like me. I'm a mass of restless energy that can't help but sit still.

TLDR, I think I need someone to reccomend a way of coping with my own energy, so I can continue with my life and stop doing all the drugs, and wasting all the time.
Do physical activities relieve this feeling for anyone, they haven't done me any good yet.

Why do you care what people think about what you're doing. In a majority of cases (save those people who are in a personal relationship with you and are simply worried about you), they might make a snap judgment but for the most part they couldn't give less of a shit about you. What are you to them, other than someone they saw or heard did something once or a few times? They honestly don't give it more than a single thought, so why do you care what they think? I think most people understand perfectly well that what most people do, especially when it's dumb, is for the sole purpose of satisfying their own carnal desire. They're also aware it's a desire you were brought into the world with, because they have the same basic desires themselves. Everybody's existence is a filled with desire, lol. You can rest assured people already assume all that about you m8

Fuck I accidentally hit enter before I was done. In any case, yes, rigorous physical activity helps. If you're just doing 30 minutes a day or something, you're going to be a bit healthier but it's not going to actually do much in helping stop drug abuse. A big part of quitting is being determined to quit though. Don't be expecting an easy way to stop, it's going to be a fuckin grind the entire time. You're going to have to learn to cope with reality in an entirely different way and to seek and derive pleasure and joy from other methods. Honestly those methods are highly personal and it's hard to give advice on what to do for that. It's really something you have to find out for yourself by putting a solid effort into not being a drug fiend any more. I deal with it on a daily basis nigga

Any time man, I'm glad you responded in a positive way though, it means you're definitely interested in getting better. This shit isn't easy.

Also, regarding what I said:
>, it's going to be a fuckin grind the entire time
It's true, but I should've mentioned it's got a ridiculous learning curve. Once you're past the curve, it's much easier to manage, but the fact remains you'll be managing it most likely all your life. Addiction is some weird shit, because it literally changes neurological functions in a way that causes ridiculous cravings out of nowhere that happen repeatedly and then go away sometimes for a little while, making you feel like you're better. On top of that, the executive functions involved in impulse control are compromised, making the cravings that much harder to deal with. Same thing can happen with brain injuries too, so if you've ever had a concussion or multiple, that can play into things. It's definitely not an excuse and doesn't waive liability for relapse, but it's nice knowing there's something going on and you're not just a total fuck up.

Hey man, I'm in a similar place minus the shit with the law. A lot of it is self-inflicted, and a lot of it you'll get yourself out of, even if it takes a while. Again, same as me. I've felt completely out of my depth for the last 3 years but I've been making solid progress even if it's hard to tell from the outside looking in. Eventually there'll be something to show for it.

The kind of stuff you're dealing with is the kind of stuff that takes years to recover from, because whether it seems like it or not it took years to get there. The drug and alcohol stuff is mostly what I'm talking about, but I'm an addict dealing with having to be sober too. Even if it got to a tipping point all at once, this is a problem years in the making, and it's gonna take at least as long to really get out of. That's just how it is, it's not as unfair as it seems either really. It sucks ass, especially since you were using drugs because you didn't know how to deal with reality either back then, and having to learn to cope with shit a healthy way without them can be a huge ordeal. However, it's insurance for the future, because most people are liable to lose more later on for not having something as big as this erupt when they were young. You're basically dealing with a big problem right away when you aren't liable to lose something like a real high up position at a good job or breaking up a family you've built and been a part of for years, where things would truly seem hopeless. Right now it sucks, but you're at a point where you can actually rebound if you try hard enough to get your shit together. When you actually do, you'll feel that much better about yourself for having been able to do it and to know how to deal with those kinds of problems in the future.

I feel like I'm stuck. I've been going back to College and I'm living at home. By the summer I will have an AA. But i have no adventure. Well what should i plan for the summer to get me through this. I guess this is both a personal issue maybe travel. It doesn't have to be far. How can i make the most of this time before the four year school if I get in.

I look at my past and present and future and things seem pretty fucking bleak. I was born to terrible parents who abused me and each other and didn't prepare me for life in the slightest. Everyone in my family and just about everyone I know is poor as fuck and lead pretty empty lives. I live in a desolate shithole in nowhere, America surrounded by strip malls and fast food joints and payday loan scammers. I was suicidal for years for a whole host of reasons. Did a year of community college, zero interest in doing more even if I had the means. Never had a job that wasn't under the table, never created a resume in my life, as much of a joke as that whole process is, never been with a woman.

All I want out of life is a kitchen, somewhere to shit and bathe, a bed, a few books, music, and people in my life that I love who love me. Shit ain't easy when you're broke and dysfunctional. I'm doing better than ever mentally, but now that I've largely gotten over the hurdle of wanting to die every day and being consumed by hopelessness, and have finally started feeling like I could be happy and functional and maybe even loved, I don't really see any good avenues open to me. The reality of poverty is being consumed by demoralizing and dehumanizing work for most of your waking hours (and thus, most of your one and only life on this Earth, which is being pissed away utterly for somebody else's profit, and which you will not get a chance to do over if you realize on your deathbed how much time you wasted) and then not having the energy for much of anything else. This is how the people around me live. They work all week, are too tired to do anything with the precious few hours they have left when they get home, and repeat this process for 5/7 of their lives, if they're that lucky. Lord knows if the money-hungry had their way we'd all be slaves and days off would be a distant memory. Why would anyone have any interest in doing this? Most of the time you aren't doing anything that actually helps anyone or makes the world a better place; oftentimes it's the opposite. But that's where the most money is, fucking somebody. I have no problem with work; I've done hard physical …

Are you my hetero-lifemate? "I want to have a life and make music and be treated like a human being and treat others like human beings. Fuck." By God I'm so happy knowing that I'm not the only one on the Earth who wants this. Everything else you written down resonates with me so much, except the parents part.

Work is just a fact of life. It's the tradeoff we all make to have a roof over our heads, food, and simple pleasures. Despite the bullshit in society, things are actually quite communal. Everyone contributes to the common good to make sure we have infrastructure, resources, and protection from outside threats. The real issue here is that people take on too much because they feel they ought too. They buy things they don't need, have kids the world can't support, and they give into conveniences to meet their self-imposed obligations despite being stretched thin. This creates a shitty cycle of debt-bondage and emotional drainage that just isn't for people like you and me. Generations in the past would be shamed for this "selfishness", but luckily it seems like this generation is pretty woke when it comes to this. You don't have to fall into this lifestyle.

I'd say dig in and start looking into trade schools or college degrees. If that's not an option, try finding a Dollar Tree Distribution warehouse nearby. They hire anyone, it's easy enough, and the pay starts out at $12 an hour. And try not to focus on the existential dread.

I can empathize with p much everything you wrote but i have to ask
> I don't want to spend 50 hours a week working just to barely scrape
Where is it you would work for 50 hours a week and barely scrape by? Where do you live, is rent that fucked there? Around here my friend works at a decent factory job, which sucks for him to have to work at, and he works roughly that many hours a week, but he makes enough money now that he's doing pretty well for himself. He's definitely doing better than scraping by. I don't know any places you can work that allow you overtime like that where you will make so little that you can barely scrape by. Maybe I'm just getting lost in the details here, but I feel like it's important to mention that if you're working a job getting that many hours, you're likely going to be able to afford living on your own just fine without many issues with money unless you spend it like a madman on a drug habit or something.

I've been in the same town for seven years, ever since I received my Master's degree. I don't live with my family (my mother is dead and my father is the reason why I have a broken life), but I live in poverty and there really isn't anything going for me. I'm 33 and I feel like I've run out of options, although I'm not in debt or anything. I want to move, but I have no idea where I'd want to move to and for some reason everywhere else is a lot more expensive than here (I live in Northern Idaho).

I used to spend my time reading and writing, but I don't have the focus or even the motivation anymore, especially since I've been emotionally dragged up in the whole "Muslims are rapist chimps that are destroying Europe" thing. I've tried not to focus on that, but to no avail. I have stopped drinking alcohol and smoking entirely over the past six weeks, which is miraculous given that I got drunk almost every night for roughly six years.

I can't use my degree for anything, and I know better than to go back to university. I want to move on in my life and do something with myself, but I really have no idea what to do. I feel like I'm in a dead end. What should I do?

Start working out if you haven't been, you'll actually get results now that you aren't drinking. Ordinarily I'd say moving is never a solution to a crisis like this but idk about Idaho. Focus on positive shit about yourself that women are looking for, since that's what this is probably all about, right? You got a job, degree, car, nothing too crazy on your arrest record, you're set man. Get on POF or whatever people use in their 30s and take it seriously and you will find a companion who's into the same shit as you. I guarantee getting laid and having someone to do stuff with will enrich your life.

Wow, I'm sorry about that. I'd hate to be used like that by a company.

I used to drink at least six pints of beer a night, sometimes more. It seems like a fucking waste now. I mean, why? Then again, having to see my mother die in front of me and my father being the way he is did scar me a little bit; I'd say that it is fair that I'd have a drinking problem for a while. But you have to get over it eventually, or else it kills you :/

I am not sure if you should go back to college. I wouldn't; there just aren't very many jobs anymore, and college debt is usually very serious in the US. I've thought about getting a certification sometime, but I have to wait a few years for that. Fortunately I'm not poor enough to be homeless or whatever; since I've stopped drinking, I don't really spend any money.


I'm not motivated enough to work out; I'm not built to be too muscular, and I'm already losing a lot of weight. It would be fair to say that I'm not overweight anymore, or at least I won't be soon.

Yeah, the town that I live in is nice enough, but I've just been here for too long. I really don't know why it is cheap to live here; it has a university and stuff. The population is about 25,000 which is a small town in most parts of the country, but that is somewhat large here. There is a city about a hundred miles away, but it is known for being a bad place to live (I personally don't dislike it, but I've heard a lot of bad things).

I'm not gay but I don't really care about getting laid. I used to, but now I just like reading books and playing games. I don't look at porn as much because it just seems so bland to me these days. I really don't know why. What I do know, is that I have serious commitment issues from having a father that replaced my dead mother like she was nothing, and not getting love or acceptance from anyone. I've been neglected all my life, and now I can't connect to anyone. Also I've wanted to be a woman in the past, but I think that was partially due to mental illness. I still sort of do, but how? I'd just end up killing myself.

In regards in being affected by political situations, it really helps to cut off your daily consumption of political news... or go as far as to make it weekly. Although I'm assuming your news quality maybe better than someone like me in Burgerland, there's still the issue of such discussion being cancerous on the internet with shitposters shitposting for likes and retweets.

Might be best to download something like StayFocused or something similar so you can block yourself from visiting certain sites for a certain time.

Yeah man, sometimes you need to get out of the house. Especially if you start hearing things. My best suggestion for soothing insanity is to spend time with people who aren't totally fucked up themselves. And stop using drugs and drinking if you can. I went through some rough shit last year and stopped drinking for about 5 months, and my life has gotten categorically better since then. I drink occasionally now, but I'm certainly not reliant on it.

Dude, what kind of answer do you think is actually going to help you? You're expecting some kind of magic bullet. Honestly, the only somewhat magic bullet out there is just getting over it and doing it, or "stop being a bitch" as you like to put it. I'm speaking from personal experience, it's possible he is too. There's no way to make things easier to do so you have a smooth, comfortable ride trying to get better. This attitude is exactly why you are where you are. Again, I'm speaking from personal experience myself, I used to be the same way minus the booger and hair eating.

Yeah OP, the other people already nailed it because to an extent, we've been there.

It's called experience. You're talking to a crowd of old(er) hats here and we've done something similar to where you're at now.

Society has alot of expectations of you now, and it gets worse each year you age. It's that divide you should've felt during your teenage years; who you want to be vs what everyone else wants you to be.

Trust me when I say this: Go outside and do shit. You're early 20s can be fun as fuck if you go outside and do shit. Go to college or something. College is the place you go when you either:

a) Have a carefully crafted plan of your career goals that involves an education in a particular field

b) Don't know what the fuck your doing and need some time to figure it all out

You'll find more of the latter than the former.

I don't know about actually talking to any of those things, but yeah, they're all either the small comforts of life or the decent escapes. The moon thing doesn't appear to be uncommon though, imo. They're just coping mechanisms man, most everyone has coping mechanisms for basically everything that would wind up making them look weird. Human beings are strange animals in general, there's not a right way to do life, naturally some of the ways we cope are gonna be strange. Look at the people who think they're fucking ninja turtles or whatever.

>been in and out of relationships for the past 2 years

my insecurities and personal issues keep getting in the way of maintaining a healthy relationship. above all im in school and i work 40 hrs a week, now that i've spent a few weeks single i find myself being able to focus on these priorities a lot better.

I can do without having a gf but... How the hell do I deal with the sexual frustration? I can whack off multiple times a day, the only thing keeping me from doing it is that it starts to really fucking hurt or that there are family members in the next room. Legitimately considering going on SSRI's to shut my desires up - I'm so goddamn horny, I get boners in class with all the girls hanging around me.

I know this is kind of a joke, but don't ever do something that dumb man. My own personality has been quite changed after taking cymbalta, an SNRI, for a year and a half. Things are different in ways I wish they weren't.

Part of what can help, believe it or not, is really how you conduct yourself. I used to be masturbating like that and suddenly I was just like, this isn't as good as I actually want it to be and I don't like obsessing over porn the way I do. I pretty much just stopped obsessing over the female figure and thinking about sex or wanting to masturbate all the time, and just blow a load every once in a while. Honestly that was all that needed to change. Sometimes in particular that changes and you need to go a little crazy, but making a regular habit out of beating off and watching porn makes it totally unsatisfying and leaves you desiring for more. Just not obsessing over it in the first place was enough to counter that for me.

also, if all you need to do is fuck then the this post doesn't make any sense. my standards have gone down pretty ridiculously, and i don't feel shame for it whatsoever. you're just being too self-conscious, probably because you're still pretty young. if you want to fuck, then fuck. if you're gonna be all embarrassed of the girl you fucked, then you must not have wanted or needed to fuck that bad. I'm not saying to have no standards, but girls I used to classify as 3/10-5/10 these days are 4/10-7/10 p easily, and ive always been cool with going with 4/10s. i mean they're good enough to fuck, at least.
