I think the stress of modern dating has finally broken my brain. I'm losing it

I just started a tinder convo with, "You are so beautiful it's literally stupid"

Meanwhile, I just had an awkward IRL interaction that stupid TV trope happens where a person is so attractive that you're at a loss for words and basically Blue Screen.

Gave her a boring compliment, correctly guessed that she's of Ukrainian ancestry, and then didn't know what to say, so I jokingly asked her mom for permission to get her number.

You know when two minutes later, all the things you should have said flood your mind? I give the suave version of me who only exists in my imagination full permission to kill the real me and assume my identity.

Or if living my life is too much trouble for him, just killing me should be sufficient. Like I'd even notice if he didn't follow through.

I've only done 'shrooms once, and I did a half-dose because I wanted to take it easy for my first time instead of over-extending myself, and I was partying rather than being in a calm environment or nature or something.

It was pretty mellow. Didn't have any hallucinations or delusions, just kept on stimming and had colourful visual distortions. Didn't like how fast it made my heart beat, but everything else was fine.

This is my favorite article about addiction. Also fuck AA (unless it works for you then great. but I think for a lot of people it's completely counter-productive and terrible)

Ah, okay. As Daffy Duck said, "And another thing!"

In the back of my mind, I'm hearing someone ask, "Well, if it wasn't our natural desires warping us, why did we drink destructively? Isn't it insanity to drink until you are so sick that you are dying?" And, obviously, the same goes for taking drugs until you die, or smoking cigarettes until you can't breathe.

Fair question. Let me make a wild guess, and say, "Maybe you wanted to feel good."

I can't help but think you might have wanted to kill the pain, and just relax and feel good. Maybe even feel better, or feel really great.

Gee, how could I guess that one so accurately? I must be psychic or something.

But isn't that just what Bill Wilson said, "our desires warping us?" Nope, not by a long shot. There is nothing wrong with wanting to feel good. In fact, you are sick and warped if you don't want to feel good.

What goes wrong, what happened to us, is: we got confused about what would make us feel good. Initially, alcohol or drugs, or both, did make us feel good. So we identified the high with the means of getting high. That is a very common problem, one that hits everywhere.

shrooms are kind of hard to dose because there are so many variables (strength, potency, weight, natural tolerance, etc). i've done them quite enough times, but i was the type of person where the environment didn't hugely affect my experience. i could always find my little space. but some of my best shroom memories are of me giddily enjoying activities i would never really partake in, like fucking frisbee golf. but the strongest shroom trip i ever had left me on my friend's bed hallucinating the ceiling opening up to reveal lights and trees and "goddess" energy, while MCIS was on repeat and i kept seeing BC's angry bald head spinning around the room out of the corner of my eye. so profound, and so stupid. thankfully my equally intoxicated friend friend was the only witness to that.

The only time you ever address me or respond to me is to be a jerk.

fuzzy turned off his rep because he couldn't handle all the gay rhetoric we were directing at him

It only counts if someone quotes him and the quote is particularly repugnant, which it usually is.
