    Congrats man! 9 months was around the time when the cravings really began to dwindle for me.

    Your first Christmas holiday season after quitting will be difficult but if you've made it this far, you can do it.

    Peace.

    Thanks mate. This thread keeps me going sometimes. Like a special interest meeting ha.

    Rip poz.

    I haven't been an outwardly social person for a very long time so to be honest the christmas time doesn't hold any sentimental using thoughts.

    Will stick close and get through one day at a time etc etc

    Finally considering putting down the booze, at least for a little bit. Went on a drunken rampage on Friday night, pissed off everyone in the only bar in town I like, to the point I woke up Saturday morning with 4 slashed tires and had to spend a few hundred bucks I didn't have on new tires and rims. This should be the last straw. Hopefully the shakes don't try to sway me away.

    I've been obsessing mentally about sex for about 10 years. Random one night stands, missed opportunites, falling short with the women I was with, older of younger. Some underage. It hit hard when I was at my peak, and didn't get it in with 50 women when I was 19.

    I guess drugs got in the way. My first asked me not to use marijuana when we were dating, andI didn't even have a second thought. We were 17 and 16. Then I dealt with doubting my sexuality because of some mental and emotional problems. I experimented once, and knew that I was straight after that. Then I started hanging out with this bisexual friend of my older sister's, who was, not to my conciousness, deep in the game of turning girls and boys. I grew up in a Christian household, communed Catholic. Started using cocaine, and really and truly thought it would and had deeper faith in it, by the way, travel me along with the straighter and narrower path.

    After all that, I used coke twice this year, and now I'm 27, and I'm looking back to look forward. It's the first time I've been absolutely clear and safe in my own heart, head, spirit, that I'm straight. I find myself going back to when I was a sober 11-14 year old, taking so much of my friends' and culture's beginning's high held standards, how low I was seen by those who left safely away from the dive bar years.

    I'm worried about the next move with my relationships. Do I open up about my doubts? Do I tell her ever last detail? My safety 1st mentality says take it slow. I know a lot about taking it with a woman who has had years of similar emotional issues.

    My drug habits are way lowered this year, and I think hard as ever about others' diversity in background about these types of things.

    Sorry for the no reply boodah but that stuff is way outside my knowledge base.

    Keep talking to people and try and find people you can identify with.

    Alcohol is bad, alcohol generates horrible decision making and shitty physical distress after its effects causing punches to the face, car accidents, clamitia via questionable sexual partners and impaired protection values.

    Smoke pot.

    I wrote a horror story once. Ended up getting way too drunk, so I could zen myself the wrong way into my writing.

    This was heart felt, thanks for being candid, although I'm sure it was cathartic to write.
    Sex is surely my addiction, I drink and smoke pot regularly, but have no problem going cold turkey.
    I've done the things you spoke about ad nauseum, my hunger for vagina is insatiable it seems.
    So many great nights and adventures, yet, the ones who got away or the lackluster mornings persist in the mind.

    Drug use definitely makes things more complicated, i'm kinky/freaky enough naturally, but weed can turn
    me into a sexual maniac at times.

    Best advice I can give you, don't fret about it, some people will never know what good sex is like.
    Be upfront with your lady, advice I live by. Some of the things I've told the mrs. weren't easy, there were
    plenty of awkward talks, unfulfilled requests, and complicated smiles, but honesty really is the
    best policy.

    The way I see it, I rather lose my woman because I revealed who I am than keep her around under
    the guise of being a half measure of myself.

    Only thing that I know won't work for you is taking a drink.

    Interviews are a two way thing, if you tanked it, do not beat yourself up about it right away. Give it a while and you will probably see things in a little different light, perhaps the interviewer was an asshole, perhaps the job was over or under your skill set despite your level of enthusiasm, all kinds of things can go wrong and most of them are beyond your control.

    It is the worst kind of anxiety though, the after the fact with unknown variables variety.

    Despite offering the illusion of making problems become forgotten I have found that when dealing with regret that suppressing my central nervous system with alcohol does not actually help me process the situation to arrive at any positive outcomes.

    I also blew a potential job recently, I am not really wanting to move but an ideal job popped up. I sort of half-assed the process and may well have taken myself out of the running because of it. Such is life, I held back because of the most ridiculous idea of loyalty to my current boss and perhaps my career will pay the price, or perhaps I dodged the bullet on a shitty job...I may never know.

    Congrats on the anniversaries to those that have em, I am still doing the sober thing but have not gone to meetings or anything for a long while now.
