2022.01.17 21:23 ProbablyTooWordy I made it a year (plus six days now) ... if anyone's curious, here are my observations from the past 371 days binge-free
I really wanted to make this post last week, right as I was going to hit my one-year sober anniversary, but my body had other plans. I was incredibly sick (still kind of battling it, honestly) and my head was in a fog. Which is funny, of course, because for years I loathed posting here since it meant I was doing something wrong. I'd only do it when I relapsed. I'd fucked up, and posting here was my penance. It's how I dealt with the guilt and the shame and the unbearable burden of simply existing in the wake of a week-long booze binge. That is, until my body felt well enough to start the cycle all over again after a week or two. Honestly, I'm not even sure what the point of this post is except to serve as something autobiographical and vaguely hopeful, although I'm not sure how I'll wind up there in the end. Still, here we go:
For most people here, I probably don't need to go into the specifics, although I do find them illustrative in some sense. I was trapped in a brutal cycle of binging, recovering, abstaining and then binging again a week or so later. Sure, I tried to tell myself it'd be different this time -- I'll only buy a pint of whiskey, and I'll start at 6 PM, which isn't long enough to get TOO drunk! -- but all that did was prime the pump. By the time the next 3-5 days were done, my apartment had a few empty handles of whiskey and dozens of empty bottles of Coke Zero, plus all the trash you can imagine from ordering in constantly. My kitchen wasn't the only room that suffered, either: the entire place fell into a state of disarray. Washing sweat-soaked sheets, unclogging bile-stained drains, vacuuming food that fell on the floor during my attempts at eating ... all of it became part of the ritual.
It's probably needless to say that my life suffered as a result of my addiction, too. Unfortunately, the main areas were ... all of them. Work, family, friendships, relationships, physical and mental health, financial security, you name it. Those things could all be put on hold because what my brain REALLY wanted was the sweet, ephemeral bliss of those first 90 minutes. In exchange for that golden hour and a half, any sacrifice was worth making.
Well, almost any sacrifice, I guess. I know recovery is supposed to be for yourself, not others, but it wasn't until I met the most wonderful person I know that the tide finally shifted. Her love, her support, her partnership and friendship ... they were major factors in getting my recovery to stick.
Sure, I'd put in half-measures and partial steps before -- I've been subscribed to this community for 5+ years now, and I've been in therapy even longer -- but it was never enough to make lasting changes. Besides, I never really cared if the people in my life came or went. As long as it meant I could drink how my brain wanted, I was willing to give up mostly anything. It wasn't until I found something I didn't want to give up that I found the courage to seek help.
My last binge coincided with the January 6th events in 2021. They were so surreal and so dispiriting to watch that even with a ton of tools in my toolbox, I couldn't stave off the desire to numb. It wasn't the first time I tried to stop, though. Hell, I went to outpatient rehab in Fall 2020 and started attending Recovery Dharma meetings soon after. Since were were well into Quarantine Life at that time, everything took place remotely, which was a major help. Don't get me wrong, I'm not exactly defending COVID here, but it did make a lot of resources and meetings way more accessible than ever before. Suddenly, I could attend a meeting virtually anytime and anywhere.
And oh, attend I did. Recovery Dharma is, as I assume most recovery groups are, about finding your sangha, finding a place or a group where you feel you belong and you're positioned for success. In my case, that place was somewhere out east: Pennsylvania, New York, Tampa, Asheville, and so forth. I'm from Oregon -- but my work days ended when prime time began out east, so I was able to make it work for months.
I should also mention that medication (in my case, Naltrexone) played a major role in my recovery. Make no mistake: It was NOT an easy adjustment. The first few days of taking it made me violently sick, lethargic, and weirdly photosensitive. Truly, if given the choice, I'd take a hangover over that feeling. Fortunately, once I powered through it for a week or so, my reaction subsided. And so, too, did the cravings. It's honestly a trip how effective it has been (and still is!) for me. I was skeptical at first, but I'm glad I stuck with it.
As for the perks? Well, this subreddit is full of posts that detail them, and most of mine are no different: I have tons more energy, my work is consistent, my family relationships are stronger, my rescue dog appreciates all the extra walks, and my romantic life has reached heights I never dreamt possible and never thought I deserved. My anxiety and depression have all-but disappeared, and the really bad stuff is a lot more manageable with the tools I've cultivated in therapy.
Perhaps best of all, I'm in a place I'd describe as "quietly confident" about things. Sure, I'd imagine cravings will still surface -- it's NFL playoffs time as we speak -- but I'm not in the business of pillorying myself over those. They're simply part of the deal. It's like those moments when you're driving and your brain makes you wonder what it'd be like to steer into the other lane. Not that you WOULD, of course, but your brain wants you to know that you COULD. Doesn't mean it's a good thought, and it doesn't mean you have to act on it, either.
I guess that's about all I have to say in terms of reflection for now. Really and truly, I owe a lot to this community and the hundreds/thousands of like-minded people whose posts kept me going through rough times. Your stories are my stories. Your struggles and successes are my struggles and successes. I knew I had to quit drinking as far back as 2013, but it took me the next seven years to build the foundation I needed to sustain that effort. I couldn't be happier that I did, and I look forward to keeping this train rolling. I will not drink with you today.

2022.01.17 21:23 Horror_in_Vacuum Are biomes "randomly" generated or ir there something like "biome rarity" in the game?
I got a new PC and decided to start a new world in minecraft.
My previous computer was so slow that it couldn't really handle version 1.8 and higher, so I was stuck playing 1.6.4 and 1.7.10 since 2015.
But there's one thing that I noticed only now.
1.7.10 was one of those updates that add new biomes, but it seemingly messed with the chance of some biomes being generated.
This may be just an impression, but I could swear that since version 1.7.10 I haven't been able to find a single jungle.
Also, deserts are really rare for me.
I have created countless new worlds since then and I only seem to find plains, oak forests and spruce biomes.
And this is still true for the more recent versions.
I'm currently playing a custom 1.12.2 modpack, and I've been trying to find a freaking desert for 2 real time days.

2022.01.17 21:23 Mr_bike I sometimes prefer going sideways along with these lower points in the markets, it's much quieter.
Since I've seriously gotten into investing last year, so has everyone else and their dogs. When it goes up it is nice and I like the positive vibes, but on the same hand, everyone gets so blinded by the bright green candles all you see is nothing but post about how high we are and nothing but good news. Also, during these times, anybody is a genius when they buy a meme coin and make 100x gains from 100 usd. Then when it is down, it is the same thing just bad news and people screaming to HODL.
Right now though, nothing crazy is happening, and a lot of people have lost interest or lost everything and called it all a scam. I just have my assets safely stowed away and staked. I don't feel the need to check the markets every ten minutes looking for a sell or buy point. It'll probably be quiet for a while and I'm just gonna enjoy the peace.
