Whether it's a full and diagnosable addiction or a negative tendency, you have to do whatever is necessary to eliminate or weaken it if it's that destructive. If the only remedy is complete avoidance, so be it.It turned into an addictiong, and for years I have suffered from envy, and lack of satisfaction in relationships. I realize however that facebook is pure, voyeuristic poison and I have permanently deleted it. It is an odd feeling not having it for the first time in 8 years, but I feel it's time has come.
Also, off-topic, but, I mentally read your post in Trump's voice because of your avatar. Is anyone else here influenced in that way by a poster's icon?
This comment and your avatar wonderfully compliment each other.like cummies.
Substance abuse and addiction (the two are actually different) are very complicated subjects and I would rather not write an essay here explaining all of the differences and factors and possibilities. My very succinct response to that is, sometimes people who were otherwise well emotionally really did just start drinking or using drugs because they were curious or wanted to feel better. Something internally was then activated and they were abnormally fixated on it ever since. Of course, some people do turn to substances to medicate trauma such as yours, and I believe with enough abuse someone can become an alcoholic/addict without being born with that predisposition.Just like drugs, nobody just starts sticking a needle in their arm just because they want to get loaded, something made them that way, made them turn to those things.
But yeah, I agree wholeheartedly what you said, DirkBloodStormKing. Something made these people that way.
Whether someone's a born or made addict/alcoholic is difficult to say and varies from person to person, but certainly those born ones who have trauma or psychological disorders are very likely to try to medicate them, which activates that inborn disease and then reinforces it.
I had believed I was redeemable until you pointed out I was vermin, and thus rated your post Informative. I shall get drunk and high on everything known to man after I send this, in light of your revelation.every single one of you is going to stay addicted to whatever you're addicted to
every single one of you is going to die addicted to whatever you're addicted to
i don't even know you all and i can say that with absolute certainty because i know you're sad weaklings with no hope for self-improvement
Well, there are multiple reasons someone could have a heightened familiarity with this topic. People in the medical and psychological professions need to attend some AA meetings to better understand AA and addiction. Psych professionals are trained to understand addiction and do a lot of research. Some live with an addict and thus are highly familiarized with the process and disease. I've never actually disclosed whether I'm a recovered alcoholic (though it'd be the most likely reason), only that I know a great deal about this subject.It's really hard to have a discussion about addiction without powerlevelling. Almost everyone knows or is an addict, and very few people know the science behind it, so without personal stories the entire discussion would just be "I think addiction is bad" or "drugs seem pretty cool" over and over.
That being said, the thread is relevant to people discussing their addictions and is in a different sub-forum from the lolcow one, so it's not really powerleveling to disclose one's battles with addiction here if it's done tastefully.
There are so many things you could do with your time. You just aren't aware of them and have no inspirations to indulge. There must be aspects of your life that are deficient and could be improved with planning, time, and energy. You must have areas of interest you have wanted to better understand. You could write about various subjects. You could even just purchase and play games you haven't been able to if you're too lethargic or anxious to do anything productive. There are so many things you could be doing. I'm always engaged in work on one thing or another and wish I had more time and stamina to do them, and to relax.My biggest issue with being sober atm is just being fucking bored.
You do understand that angrily and impulsively responding to trolls just magnifies their desire to troll you right?boring shitfastia shitpost
