Above, the storm clouds now had depth against the blue sky. The monsters darting behind the trees had red piercing eyes.

My 8th grade English teacher just got a boner.

I love that you got sober. It will be 6 years for me next March.

However the rest made me try on my wife's underwear. They were uncomfortable.

Congrats on six years of sobriety! Did you go to meetings or just quit on your own?

I do go to meetings sometimes. It really helps to be around other addicts. We cut right through the bullshit.

>"ice tea please." is all that came out. I couldn't do it. It didn't even sound good, the thought turned my stomach.

This was me, but only with food. In 2003 I was 55 lbs overweight, drinking two 16oz Pepsi, hitting the vending machines at work in the afternoon, devouring half a bag of choc chip cookies in one sitting, always going for seconds on dinner with dessert. After 3 months of cutting carbs, soda, garbage food, working the iron maiden, and hitting the bike, I was down 30 lbs. One afternoon, I figured hey, I'm doing good, hit up the vending machine for a bag of doritios. I was half way through when my stomach started to churn. I threw the rest away as my body told me, what the fuck are putting in me?

3 months later, my wife bought some 50 lb bags of sand for a landscaping project. As I was lifting them out of the back of the jeep, I though, holy shit these are heavy. This is what I was carrying around on my body day in , day out. No wonder my knees hurt, my back ached, and why I groaned when sitting down or getting up.

Today I am 195lbs on a 6'2" frame and no desire to go back to the way I was.

Good for you on cutting out what was essentially unnecessary for you to enjoy your life.

Kudos to you. Another opiate of the masses. Focus on you and amazing things can happen.

Good for you man. I credit the MRP with getting my drinking under control. It’s given me a purpose and a brighter future to strive for. If I hadn’t I would probably be slowly spiralling to my death one drink after another....

Also thankful for MRP. I thought TRP was bullshit till my marriage was on the brink, and all the while my wife is dropping lines you woulda thought were straight outta here. She missed the alpha that swept her off her feet.

Little did I know this journey isn’t at all for her. It’s all about recalibrating what is innately in each and every man. NMMNG was literally like a walk down an old road I had taken with someone walking by me like, this is why you are where you are, now let’s fix it. I always have enjoyed team sports, and always felt edified by the coach who would chew me out, and then say “I know you can do better section8!”

MMSLP was also an awakening to let me know, hey this is biology. This is just how it is. All in all I realized the biggest thing for me was I need to own it. I think I was more co-dependent than I’d ever care to admit, but here I am.

3 months in, still not ready to make any field reports or anything like that but seriously a happy and fulfilled life would not be possible if I didn’t find this.

Emphasis on fulfilled, because life is no bed of roses.

You a fan of literature or just pens?

Both are a reason to write, but one is for the feel, and the other feelings.

Good point. Did sober September and it took my desire to drink down to once per wk. Also nofap for three wks now. Not cuz I had to, just trying to see how much discipline I have.

[–]BarracudaRP0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

People pay good money to rewire their addictions like you just did, good job. I also couldn't step away from booze until I started doing Red Pill work. You mention diet and lifting, I'd be curious to know how hard you were pursuing those when the sobriety took over?

Love your contributions. Save the flowery language for your diary.

Congrats, I have the same relationship with it now. Quit for my own reasons and now don’t even want to touch the crap if it’s made freely available. Well done!

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
