The Stop Drinking (or using other substances) thread - Hello, my name is "kiwi farmer", and I am an alcoholic.

The only good thing to come out of covid was I ramped up my drug and alcohol abuse to the point I almost ended up shitposting in hell. Now I'm coming up on 6 months clean and feel a fuck of a lot better. I don't miss hangervers or missing out on stuff because I was on some combination of drugs that made me erratic. The only thing I really miss is weed but I know it will just lead me back to doing the other shit. Another user said get hobbies. I can't agree more. At least try meetings. They are kind of gay but I met a good group of friends there that I regularly hang out with. If you keep hanging around people who use you'll end up using too. Get help if you're struggling with this. It's no joke.

So @mindlessobserver, have have you been man?
It's tough going. Thankfully no liquor but I did break down a week ago while out with some friends and had two beers. The social pressure is the hardest and the expectation when you are eating out that you have to order alcohol to go with it. Still have a pretty intense craving too, but I am scratching the itch with diet soda. Debating if I want to try the craving meds again, but they never really worked.

Well, you're only human. We all fuck up. The fucked up thing is if you want to really stop, you gotta distance yourself from people who drink, or do anything you're trying to stop. I wish you the best man.

I've started using a desire to pay down the debts from my move and to reaccumulate crypto as motivation to stay away from the sauce. So far so good. I've found it's really important to redirect my brain with different motivations, particularly at the end of the work day when my usual habit was to go and buy booze. Guess those therapy sessions from 2 years ago are actually doing some good since these are techniques they discussed.

I dont drink. Either you are genetically prone to drinking or prone going dry

Im the latter.

I will say get new friends and more natural ways to get your kicks. You might be drinking cause its the only time ya social


Its dependence on grog.
Yeah guys, get your kicks more naturally. I'm a porn enthusiast so I don't need to get my kicks from drugs or alcohol.

I helped a friend stop drinking with this easy trick:

1. Eat asparagus .
2. Fill a slurpee cup with piss (it must be a slurpee cup), and let it sit out in the heat for a day or two.
3. Get all of the alcohol in the house, and pour a good amount of the semi-fermented piss into each container (You might need multiple people/Slurpee cups of piss, depending on how much alcohol there is ).
4.????
5. Sobriety.

I have never spoken to Kiwi Farms sober. I'm typically in the process of downing a 750ml bottle or drinking 30 beers. Often both.
I don't like to be this way but the world scares the shit out of me, so instead of preparing I pick up a drink.
It's not about the social interactions for me. It's all about numbing the pain.

I feel you man, i was a heavy drinker for almost a decade but i quit drinking a few years ago. It was hard to rewire the brain the way you put it, i noticed after awhile i started seeing way better results at the gym with my lifts once i quit completely and i was able to drop around 20lbs which helped with pullups and running. To be honest autistically investigating dark and evil shit online in a weird way helped me get my shit together and focus on reading, physical fitness etc. I think i am predisposed to alcoholism, so imo the best way to deal with it is just quit all together if you are like me at all.

I don't know how much we overlap or should overlap but I've been fucking over other people and myself for years with drinking. I never feel like I can't stop. I have stopped for reasons before. Problem is that I don't stop for others reasons and this creates social disfunction. I drink as much as I can which has a very dire aspect to it when you consider that people at all levels depend on me. Also health.
I don't know what you are experiencing but I'm losing friends and my professional life is taking over because they are the only ones who care about the output and so on. At this rate at some point my professional output will falter, and I will have no one who wants me for me. I will die alone. Good luck.
