  • Reminds me of the Bible verse “The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.” So true. Anyone who gets sober is incredible. Also, she kind of has a Kathy Griffin vibe. Not sure what it is.

  • I do not have alcoholism on either side of my family, but I do drink moderately everyday. I have 2 glasses of wine after lunch and 2 after dinner. I know that's on the heavy end of moderation, but I've promised anyone I know that if they ever see me in a stupor, slur my words, or a blackout that will be the last day I drink. It hasn't happened, but I also haven't skipped a day in 2 or 3 years either. Not sure what to do or where I'm at on the spectrum.

  • Alcohol is cool, until the HANGOVER kick in. Never like the shit very much. Sober for like? 1 year? Drugs arent for me. Exercise is enough.

  • That would be the same as over eating is genetic. Its not. Its just that so many people do it they can never blame themselves. Its so random. If it were genetic The entire family would be drunk all the time.

  • Joe might be an alcoholic too, but he laughs way too much when she’s talking about some serious trauma. Im a vet and saw some fucked up stuff, but none of that compares to alcoholism. Alcoholism isn’t like DMT or marijuana, that shit is deadly and ruins your life, it’s one of the few drugs that can actually kill you just to detox from it and those hallucinations are goddamn terrifying 100% of the time. Really cringing all the way through this, been there and doing that. Glad she was able to get sober

  • GHB... sounds like she might have been drugged with the OTHER date r*pe drug... In lower dosages GHB is euphoric and can be reminiscent of cocaine, but without the fiend like quality. It also floods your brain with chemicals that would usually only be released in the smallest increments, accounting for a hangover.

  • Is Russia & China's "hierarchy", USA's biggest threat? Or its citizens? For sure its hierarchy. Thus potential for war is from hierarchies & not from family oriented people of lesser pyramid positions. Meaning the military should take out hierarchies, but they defend them instead, lame. Are top rich individuals in general, really hoarding all that style, just to walk around the mall with it / the parking lot? Or to make hotel peasants do their dirty work for them? Or to have boat parties with fake unenlightened humans at best? Is that all they can muster? Even if a person is rich, to just watch tons of people at their boring jobs & believe that's okay, seems wack to not speak out. Is conformity with taxed time really better than creativity with free time? Population wise. Has the system even built 1 god darn thing, that gifts the public with anything at all automatically? (or tries to aim in that direction at least?) Some trees do just grow themselves, without human intervention, has society learned anything from that? As a model for how to regulate. Why is it, that people who are pro-ladder-systems, never good at having a solid solution on how to deal with tyrants? How is a few hard workers maybe not getting rewarded enough (even tho donations are a thing - I mean look at streamers), a worst problem than in-direct slavery? - The debate of equilibrium. Would people wait to revolt still, even if their was 1 world wide trillionaire? Must we really wait till then, to find out. Also after they over throw that world wide 1 trillionaire sales man. They do realize the only way to get his or the next guy's (who takes his place) hooks out of everything, is to demolish the dollar bill design or anything similar to it. Plus eradicating all roles of status globally. So the dollar bill game is gonna fall apart one way or another. Because repeating itself, won't be a viable option. Sincerely, a concerned citizen, ahead of his time

  • Alcoholism isn't genetic. Thats just making excuses...its learned from one's environment and upbringing. If ones parents drink and live a certain way, that person is gonna want to do that because that's life to them. Everyone is a product of their environment, it just depends if a person is IN their environment or truly a part of it. My favorite quote to live by is "to live in the world, but not of it"

  • I consider myself a really healthy alcoholic. I’ve been to the hospital twice already for acute pancreatic pain, the last time I was actually asleep for 2 days at the hospital and couldn’t walk for a few days. That was 4 1/2 years ago and now I drink on the weekend but I drink at least a bottle of tequila in two nights but I workout hard on cardio 5-7x’s on the weekdays. I wish I could just drink once a month or so and not every weekend because I’m afraid I’ll develop some type of disease and I’m only 28.

  • I'm 3 yrs sober now. It's wonderful. I binge watched a lady on ISpast. Her channel is This Naked Mind. She's great. I used to think it was genetic, like born within you to become addicted or not. But now I think it's a learned behavior. Maybe not learned but a downloaded or programed thing from being raised by faulty parents. From ages 0-7 it's your parents job to teach you about the world (this is green- that is poison-this is a cat) then from 7-12 it's your parents job to help you learn who YOU are (do you like green beans or peas- do you feel hurt- do you like that person) . But they usually teach you how to be them (eat this because I made it- that doesn't hurt, don't be a baby- hug your aunt even if you hate her), so you end up drinking or taking drugs because you feel guilty being you or you don't know how to be you and it feels crappy because it's too hard to be someone else. It's called Codependency. I also watch Lisa A Romano on ISpast. Start from her oldest videos because if you jump right in to her recent ones, it gets a little wonky. Good wonky but you should build up to it. Good luck to anyone trying. It's easier that you think. YOU GOT THIS!! *CHEST BUMP*

  • Tips for sustained sobriety: skip the AA cult (17% success rate - founded by literal puritans) and microdose psilocybin mushrooms. This is the most evidence-backed method to become truly well (not just sober). After you become mentally healthy, you will be able to drink in moderation with ease.

  • I became an alcoholic when the pandemic happened, but I wouldn’t say it has impacted my life and destroyed relationships. I just like to go out to bars and relax and watch the game and converse with people. I can control my drinking and I consider myself to be a highly functioning alcoholic. You’d be very surprised some people are highly functioning alcoholics. But with the pandemic going on and with the state of politics that the country is in every time i watch the news it’s like “I need a drink” It’s gotten that stupid.

  • While most addictions may have a genetic component that PREDISPOSES you to succumb to the addiction, there is nothing in genetics that PREDESTINES you to become an addict. That distinction between predisposing and predestining is important, because people like to use genetics as an excuse which absolves them of personal responsibility. They like to use genetics in the way that we say genetics determines height, skin color, hair color, bone structure, etc - things that we have no real control over. Yes, someone who is PREDISPOSED to an addiction may have to struggle harder to avoid the addiction than someone who isn't predisposed, but as many people who quite such addictions life long attests, genetics doesn't make overcoming those addictions impossible.
