    Thank you. I completely agree with you too.
    Ever since I brought it up, I haven't spent a thought or two on it since. Still have not given into it-- the journey is going along well!
    I support you and your pathway. I also wish you the best on this journey :)

    Yep I second that.  Keep posting on here. You help others in ways you can’t see.  I have found that helping others has a strange way of helping yourself as well. I am sorry that you don’t have any friends at the moment.  That can be hard for sure.  I have found that taking walks outside has helped me greatly.

    I hope the therapy helps, Cent. 
    You are not a loser.  Your posts help me and will help so many people from all over the world who use these Forums.  That is not only a healing gift, but often a life saving gift.  No one who helps save lives could ever be called a "loser."  Helping to save lives is one of the greatest, if not the greatest thing a person can accomplish in life.  You are a millions times more than a person who plays video games.  To us on the Forums, you are a hero!

    I feel like garbage constantly. My mom always tries to get me to stop hiding in my room and playing video games but those are the only things that distract me from it all. I can’t shake the feeling that Emily and my dad thought I wasn’t good enough to make sacrifices for. And then I feel guilty because that’s a selfish line of thought. 
    I feel like a fat loser all the time, and I don’t have any friends any more who can console me. I have therapy tomorrow for the first time in 2 weeks so I’m hoping we can clear some stuff up there but for now everything just kinda sucks.

    It helps me to remember that I have old pathways in my brain that are deep. Yet I can create new pathways that are healthier and they will deepen over time. I also imagine the habit as something that is really slow acting poison in disguise. This help me choose differently. I wish you the best on your endeavors.

    I am sorry to hear this. What an awful way to lose a friend.
    I know the feeling- losing a close friendship is hard. It's like losing a piece of yourself or losing that source of happiness. This is not an easy situation and my heart goes out to you during this difficult time.
    I am sorry for your loss. She sounded wonderful- and hearing the situation with her SO irritates me to no point.
    I hope you achieve a friendship like that again. Sometimes, that's what we need. Keep yourself out there-- there's always more friendships to come around, so long as you look in the right place.
    Keep us posted. We're all here to support you. Feel free to drop a message to either me or any other forum members you're close to.
    I wish you the best

    I am so sorry to hear about what you have been going through. It sounds like a tough situation, and I know it's hard on you.
    Keep reaching out. Find positive outlets. Journaling might help you clear your mind as well. Get your thoughts down somewhere. It might help.
    As for your therapist, do you think he'll be more aware of things if you just admit to him that he's not helping? Perhaps he can switch to different solutions or techniques. That's what he's there for- just be honest.
    Please, hang in there. We're always here to help and listen.
    I wish you the best

    I am a coffee addict.  I've had 16 cups today.🤪No I'm not nervous.  16 cups over 13 hours is what I need to function.

    Losing people is the worst, the absolute worst, the most painful, the most scary.  People who have not been through it can never understand.

    All I can say is I know how you feel.  Everyone I have ever loved is dead now so I am alone in this world now and might always be alone in this world.

    I lost my best friend 9 months ago. Her boyfriend said she could talk to me anymore and poof, she’s gone. She didn’t want this, she said she just couldn’t handle her boyfriend when he was upset with her. He was a jealous dude.
    either way it’s been 9 months since I last saw her. I’m still so hurt by it. She helped me through a terrible part of my life, taught me how to be a human again and now she’s just gone. Losing her was like losing my dad again. I just can’t help but think back to the good times we had together and how happy I was to have a friendship like we had. It makes me want to cry every time I think about it. I feel so alone now, I keep losing people. My other friend stopped talking to me because it’s made her u ncomfortable that people thought we should date, my other other friend moved an hour away. I just want people I can cry with again. I want people who can make me happy again. I can’t sleep now because I’m so sad.

    At the end of my drinking I kept doing it even though I knew it would make me feel bad and I honestly hated it.  Change is so hard.  Sometimes even if what we're doing is miserable it's still familiar and we know how to get through it so we will choose to keep doing it instead of moving on to the unknown.

    Wish I had the answer. I've got some terrible habits, I'll do things in full knowledge that I'll feel bad because of it after but I do it anyway. I'd go as far as saying it's self-sabotage.

    Thank you so much for that thorough explanation. It really does help me understand the overall image of this. And I greatly appreciate that :)
    And how kind of you to offer-- I'll certainly remember that. Thanks again, Sober. This thread has helped me more than you could imagine!

    Also that part of your brain that tries to con you into doing the addictive thing is what we call the disease.  There will be a literal argument in our heads.  Technically we all have free will but that part of our brain has expert level manipulation abilities.  When we were created that part of the brain was probably made to help make sure we stayed emotionally stable but whatever created us had no idea we would encounter very powerful drugs in our day to day life that are almost impossible to control yourself on.  Even sugar there's nothing really more addictive than sugar and we all consume it.  Anyway if you ever need advice you can send me a message any time.

    I wanted to ask for your guys' advice. Sometimes I struggle getting rid of bad habits or activities I do personally-- but I honestly want some help.
    What my bad habits are specifically, I will not share. Mainly because I can't bring myself to share them. But what has helped you guys overcome bad addictions or habits? What would you recommend to a friend who's in the same situation you used to be in?
    I'm kind of in a hole. And I'm trying to dig my way out.
    Wishing you all the best

    Yes, what you said is true. I have never been able to fully put the situation into words myself, and it helps reading what you described it to be.
