2022.01.29 10:52 sew-amazing Stopped Weekly Drinking for 75 Days and Don’t Plan to Go Back
Around ten years ago, seduced by health studies suggesting that light drinking has health benefits, I went from being a person who hardly ever drank to drinking at least once a week - usually on Friday or Saturday, often both. I rarely drank what I would consider excessively - usually it was just 1 or 2 glasses of wine at night before bed. In this time I went through periods when I started craving, and indulging in, the odd middle-of-the-week drink as well.
To a casual member of society, I didn’t have a “drinking problem” as it is commonly understood. But I felt it was a problem FOR ME. I just didn’t feel like the real me.
In this time I experienced some of the worst health of my life. My hair and skin deteriorated. I had brain fog. I was constantly congested and developed GERD and IBS. And my weight kept creeping up - I went from being in the mid-130s (slender for my height) to being in the 160s, and it was a painful struggle to lose weight. I did lose most of the weight a few times, but within a year I would put it back on. Before drinking my weight would fluctuate, but never higher than the 140s. The changes to my skin were especially upsetting - it went from light olive to a dull, sickly yellowish-tan year round, and prone to breakouts. My face looked puffy. I looked like a stranger to myself.
Towards the start of November, I decided to participate in a 75 day health challenge, one of the components of which was to not drink. To my delight, in the symptoms that I’ve been having are improving. I’ve gone from 161 to 148 pounds. My skin looks brighter. I have less itching and less inflamed thickened areas all over my body. My focus has improved. In short, I look and feel more like “myself” than I have in a long time.
Last weekend, after not drinking for 75 days, my husband and I decided to celebrate by eating fancy restaurant food and … drinking. I was conflicted about the drinking part, and I should have heeded my instincts, because I didn’t enjoy it very much in the moment, and felt gross the next day.
I’m not saying I will never drink again - I haven’t decided yet. What I am saying is that I’m on a healing path and I will avoid stepping off it again until I feel I’ve reached the end. It might take six months, one year … maybe less, maybe more.
And then … who knows? I may be okay with infrequent drinking at that point (e.g., holidays and special occasions only), but I will NEVER go back to poisoning my body on a weekly basis.
In the meantime, if there is one thing I know for sure, it’s that it’s Saturday, yet IWNDWYT.
Thanks for sharing your inspiring stories and letting me share mine in return.

2022.01.29 10:52 ThrowRAhusk My (27/M) childhood trauma resurfacing and the realizations that come with it have turned me into a dysfunctional miserable wreck
I'm 27/M. The worst part is realizing how bad my trauma is NOW. As a child I thought my life was NORMAL. I thought all kids were SUPPOSED to wish their dads stayed at work. I actually felt BAD for feeling that and that I was being UNGRATEFUL. I thought being intimidated by or being scared of your dad was NORMAL. NOW I'm realizing how fucked up my childhood was and my guess is my mom is too (semi-consciously) and as a result she won't admit it out of guilt.
My dad had/has an OCD especially regarding hygiene/cleanliness when I was growing up and also just anger issues in general. He would blow up at my brother and I over the smallest thing. Sometimes physical punishment (some whacks, not beating but absolutely nothing I would ever come close to subjecting my kids to. For context, my family is from Asia, it's more culturally acceptable there than it is in any Western culture).
I was always on egg shells at home and just felt more comfortable when he was at work. I remember one time we broke a new toy and he blew up calling us ungrateful and grounded us. Another time I dropped food on my pajamas and I got a slap on my knee for that. I could list a whole bunch of memories like that.
My mom was dealing with depression herself at the time and I guess didn't stick up for us the way she should have.
This led to my having a demure and quiet attitude at school that made me a target for bullying. I also picked up the OCD and tried to avoid the typical things kids do that gets them dirty and was further ostracized as a result. I was bullied so badly in 11th grade I developed depression/was on the verge of suicide and had to drop out for a year and join another school.
Things kinda changed when I went to college and I was intermittently happy but I never truly felt comfortable and like I fit in. I've never had a girlfriend (a few random encounters here and there but fuck I just want someone who can love and understand me). I do have some close friends and am lucky to have them but I've never truly been happy and I felt like this always hung over me like a dark cloud.
Around 2019-2020 my mom had almost had it with my dad and was ready to leave but he finally got medicated for OCD and on the surface seemed much happier and my mom was too as a consequence.
During covid I had a lot of time to think and by early 2021 I realized the source of why I had always felt this way: my childhood and the lack of safety and comfort I felt in my home primarily because of my dad.
I brought this up with my mom and she obfuscated. I didn't want to talk to my dad about it because I know he's too much of a narcissist to ever accept it. My mom herself tried and he lost his temper. He will never accept responsibility.
I've talked to my mom about it too and she just obfuscates. She tries to bring up the "good times" that go with the "bad ones" but when I ask her to talk about the "good times" specifically she won't. I told her she should have left him but she refuses to and refuses to straight up admit his fault.
She agrees what he did was wrong but then I ask what the next obvious conclusion was and she doesn't respond. (I don't live with or anywhere near them by the way these conversations are on the phone). I haven't spoken to my dad in weeks now and am also starting to resent my mom even though I always loved her dearly and felt like she was the person I could always rely on. Why can't she just admit he's a fuckup of a parent?
I've been in therapy for a month or so now but am honestly dealing with some of the worst emotions I've ever experienced. When I think about these things the mental anguish is unbelievable.
I'm fucking 27 and have missed out on all the experiences people my age had in college and I'm never going to get them back. I feel like I'm dying (I'm not going to do anything to myself but I wish I could just not wake up sometimes) and I feel so disconnected and dissasociated from everyone/everything around me.
I really fucking hope therapy works and I can lead some semblance of a normal/somewhat happy life. I just want a girl to love and can love me and to just be done with all this pain someday.

It is difficult to go through life harboring anger towards others for past slights or harms. We all have scarring from injuries suffered as far back as childhood. And the burden can be great. But rather than forgive or forget, learn the right lessons from the past and act zealously upon them.

I've always wanted Scott to have a alter ego similar to Captain America since I started reading X-men in 2017. I stopped reading when the pandemic started. So when Scott became Captain Commander I was happy but a bit disappointed that he didn't become Captain Krakoa or something. Now I take a sneak peak and holy shit!!!

2022.01.29 10:52 Think_Condition6060 Still chasing first diamond
G’day guys so I’m back again now roughly 200 hours into the game on pc with all maps/dlcs unlocked and I’m still chasing my first diamond, I got my first rare the other day which was a dilute female mule deer which I’m stoked with and it only made me hungrier for more. Just wondering if there’s a general easier species to grind for a diamond or a map that seems to have more diamonds. Thanks in advance.
