One of my pet peeves is when others forget to put the caps back on the knees

but the place i'm going to be working at does random testing so i guess i'm not gonna smoke for a while.

pretty annoying situation living where recreational is legal.

might be for the best though. i can't do weed halfway. it's either wake and bake or nothing at all.

Not true man. There's a lot of people who are profitable in poker and even make a living from it. Sports handicapping falls into a similar skill-set.

The term "gambler" is simply a blanket term that a lot of us in the culture don't appreciate. There's no "gamble" involved when you're consistently making a profit each month. In my case, sometimes the profit isn't much, and I'm not at the point where I can live off of it, but if you're not losing money, it's not much of a gamble.

I'm glad you feel that way but just for your own sake, please take what everyone is saying and try to let it marinate a bit. So many people on this board believe the same that I do, that you do put down people who are taking psych meds in these threads. You may not mean to, but that's how it comes across.

There's a way to say "hey I think drugs of all kinds are over-prescribed, and pharm companies give doctors incentives to prescribe, and maybe as a society we need to get rid of drug lobbying and pharmacy reps" without saying "doctors give scripts to anyone who cries once in a while and most people who are depressed just use meds as a crutch instead of fixing their problems"

the first one is a defensible position, the second one is not

Yeah no doubt. I hear ya.

I do think there is a certain direct "weakening" of the culture that's going on that is a part of a bigger conspiracy. If people are strong and resilient it doesn't help the cause for the people pulling the puppet strings. Breitbart actually had an interesting story awhile back about the meds pandemic but I can't find it now.

I don't wanna go off on a tangent, but there's definitely something spiritual to be said about living natural in your own mindset.

Who am I to talk to though, it's not an easy thing to do. But there's definitely a spiritually uplifting energy that I feel whenever I'm totally straight-edge.

But fuck, I've been through some bad shit that I'm not even comfortable sharing here, and maybe I'm just super resilient that I've just managed to never get so depressed that I couldn't function. It helps that the bad shit I've been through happened when I was already an adult though, and I realize that.

Bottom line, I don't mean to belittle anyone. We all have our own gauges of what we can deal with and how much pain we can take. I've been recommended meds on a handful of occasions and I've always restrained. Maybe it was a dumb idea, I don't know. But I'm 31 and I'm still trucking along. There's something to be said for that.

I had expensive sushi for the first time ever over my stay in Austin

It was fine, but then i had Octopus Tacos at a later time and those were like life altering

I paid for the hotel so my gf had to spend the equivalent on feeding us according to her, I don't even want to know much we spent altogether

Downtown Austin is SICK but we were really out of place and everything was so crowded we wandered around like dorks and didn't see much

Jeez fuzzy. Maybe recognize that just because *you* can push through tough times with a prescription doesn't mean that everyone else can. Be grateful for your "resilience" and show a little compassion/restraint when it comes to interacting with other folks who require medication just to get by.

This is just basic empathy 101, friend.

Is Octopus Taco a euphemism for something I'm not aware of?

I've found that the quality of my life hasn't been affected by how much or how little I drink. I go through long dry spells where I drink very little to nothing at all and then brief periods where I drink more than I probably.

I'm one of the lucky ones, I think.

Yeah it's funny like sometimes sorting out one aspect of our lives don't mean other aspects can't go to shit

Do you know what aspect of your life is making everything bad? You don't have to share or you can just speak as generally as you'd like.

Either way, hope you figure it out. You're good people.

Is it because nobody will play Mario Kart 8 with you? Because I will, and I'm sure bonnie will too.
