  1. Hey guys, Anybody here had pretty severe problems with alcohol that they were able to overcome? I'm on day two of sobriety, focusing on meditating and being present with the moment, because I think my discomfort with the moment was the fuel behind all the alcohol abuse. It's strange, when I'm sober I am a responsible and successful person, but as soon as I drink I become just awful. Rude, loud, sometimes violent. It's weird to have such a huge piece of my life be dysfunctional, but on the outside I seem to be killing it at life. I have a career, I'm actively engaged in hobbies, my finances are all in order... just unsure how to tackle this, for good this time. I've woken up on the floor of my apartment covered in vomit one too many times. Any and all thoughts are welcome, thanks
  2. Didn't Bundy have a wife at one point?
  3. Not really. Both seem pretty bent on prevailing as opposed to compromising and working together.
  4. what makes his supposed indoctrination any different from indoctrination on your side?
  5. a couple drops of hydrogen peroxide in each ear for about 5 minutes has helped me a ton with excessive wax, but I think the best option would be to get them cleaned in a clinic. Actually I think Walgreens will do it for 60 bucks without insurance.
  6. I stretch after working out in the morning, and I do yoga somewhat frequently. I've noticed my posture improved a ton, after a just a few weeks of stretching and yoga there was a noticeable difference. Also I'm less sore after heavy workouts. I'm pretty sure consistent stretching will aid in the aging process in regards to your joints and whatnot.
  7. I don't recommend mixing SSRI's with any substance really, even alcohol can cause some seriously bad reactions when mixed with them. I'd suggest making it your goal to taper off the antidepressants, then start your psychedelic journey. Also, AOT, yes.
  8. Persistence is a quality of all successful people. If it's extremely important to you, develop a mindset of doing it for the sake of doing it.
  9. Yo man! We're in the same boat, so I really feel you. I think it's really helpful to apply self-love in large amounts during times like these, so be mindful of any intense negative feelings. Let yourself feel them, but don't let them consume you and keep you in bed til noon. Maintain a morning routine to remind yourself everyday that you are taking care of just you right now. Eat clean, go outside, listen to awesome music, and spend plenty of quality time with yourself doing what you love. Reach out to homies, they're your friends for a reason and friend support is a huge help when healing from heartbreak. Good luck to you!
  10. Bottom line, treat it with respect. It's insanely powerful and can give you some incredible feelings of love, but recognize that the only reason it makes you feel that way is because it dumps all your serotonin, meaning you already had that love inside of you. MDMA is just forcing your brain to release it. Make sure you take a safe dose, do not re-dose, and have the next day off to take some self care. I've had some life changing experiences with it, but I've also been stupid and used it in an unhealthy way, MDMA is not a forgiving substance when used improperly. I wouldn't call it a psychedelic though, perhaps my definition of a psychedelic is inaccurate.
  11. As someone who works for a vapor company, I can definitely say with confidence that nicotine is no joke when it comes to addiction. Something that has helped me a lot in the past is dropping to 0mg juice, which still allows for the oral fixation and whatnot to occur, but removes nicotine from the equation. The first week will be rough (headaches, fatigue, etc.) but once you actually break the cycle, you'll feel so good about it. I really struggle with nicotine because I'm surrounded by it all day, but I've made the promise to myself that this will be my last year with it. Its interesting to see addiction close up all the time, people drop hundreds of dollars on nicotine products. I've encountered a lot of people on the verge of mental breaks because they ran out of juice or their coil fried. It's almost sad to see sometimes. Good luck to you!
  12. I use Ghosts vegan protein personally, their products are pretty awesome. I'm pretty sure they ship to Canada.
  13. It's unsettling to read this, I definitely held the belief that meat you acquire via fishing or hunting is better for you than store bought products. I prefer to eat meat from the wild. Is there an argument to be made about how everything you ingest or come into contact with will cause your body harm?
  14. I think the main reason Leo says that wheat is bad for you is because it's empty calories. Carbs don't really do much for you in terms of nutrition. It's also very cheap- hence why it is so popular and widely available. If you look at the standard American diet, every single meal has bread as a filler of sorts. Do you want to be pouring cheap, processed fillers into your body? When I stopped eating carbs my entire life changed, because not only did I lose a significant amount of weight, I also felt much more cognitively engaged. Mind fog disappeared, as did anxiety on a huge level.
  15. Sounds mildly biased in all honesty.
