The 4 Steps of Living with ATSism

Step 1: Admit you have a problem
Step 2: Admit the world has a bigger problem
Step 3: Admit your previous problem isn't as big a problem as the problem of solving the world's problem
Step 4: Accept that you have a problem but
if you're going to let the NWO win and keep posting!

So... uhm... now for the real issue... Who's got the cookies?

That's right, it's not US, it's the
NWO's fault!


And don't forget, those pesky elusive aliens!

Oh man, just what I needed..Another Recovery Group meeting to fit into my busy schedule. I guess I can fit it in between my Yankees recovery group and my Chicken Wings anonymous meetings.

Welcome Orange, Andolin. Today marks your first day in responsible ATS/BTS use.

I am going to cover today how know matter how much we sometimes would like to strangle the posters of comments sometimes. We can’t unfortunately.
. So we must always remember that there are some out their in this great world who only try to persecute the “Truth Seekers” ie: us.

We must realize that those individuals are only out to minimize what we say by angering us so we resort to personal attack instead of putting the truth out like we all try to do.

Boy, I hear that, brother! Now that you mention it, I have felt like that sometimes!

You know, it seems like there are a whole bunch of users who like to spread around a lot of malicious gossip about me, in U2Us or off-board. And then use the forums to taunt me.

Now I have apologized for my past mistakes and wrongdoings countless times, I feel like I have done everything under the sun to try to be one of the good guys. And yet I still get hated on all the time. :bnghd:


What do you think Ant4AU? I feel like this is a really really mean treatment....

Don't worry about it Eddie only you kow what is in your heart. All you can do is state your opinions on topics and move on. Dont let it get you down it's just the internet. Not life or death. Take it all with a grain of salt.

Now don't get me wrong, I am not trying to cure anyone here. I am only trying to make us more responsible
So when your battles become heated you have a place to come cool off clear your head so you can return to the boards and intelligently finish your view.

This thread tickles me...the first thing any whatever-aholic is supposed to do is give up the behavior in question and quit hanging around people who enable or encourage it...no chance of that!

It's quite the curse... because if we give it up then where would we go to talk about our problem... it's a riddle I can't answer. More posts please, that'll fix me up.

We are only trying to make responsible users here. And let people know it is ok for them. To reaffirm them that this addiction is not a problem if handled responsible. And with you peaking in you are on your way to making the first step. Welcome kosmicjack.

Well it's not the tauntings in the forums that worry me - those I can shrug off easily enough.

It's the tauntings at work, in the supermarket, on the bus etc etc that worry me. I mean, I am not a violent person, at all, but everyone has their breaking point - and I have had to show like superhuman restraint already.

What is it going to take to make the tauntings stop....?

Throw yourself to the ground and flop like a fish out of water for a minute then quietly get up and walk away.

The point proven being that it is your choice how you react, so let the choice be your own and do not allow yourself to be dictated to.

Hmm, so you think that would work better than say hitting someone with a brick?

Eddie I feel your pain. Since I was about 18 I can not think of a time when there wasn’t a rumor going around about me or people just talking smack. Just nod your head and smile. To me it’s hilarious. I am apparently worth enough to many people that they cannot stop talking about me. I love it, on occasions I will throw some extra stuff in the mix for it to get real juicy.

Sadly the high school mentality never ends with some people and those will continue to be an ass their entire lives. Laugh at the immaturity of those and stay on track. Like I said earlier you know your own heart and you are the only one that has to be satisfied in your life. Hopefully you are like me and have a core group of friends that no exactly who you are and know the bs that is going on around is just that bs.

So do not fret Eddie you have friends here and I am only a u2u away if you need someone to talk to. Chin up mate as long as you are happy with you , screw the rest.

It may not feel as good
But it would work none the less. The key is letting them know it doesn't bother you.

Only if the brick is used as a metaphor for the stoic calm of your soul and their head trauma being a metaphor for the futility of attempting to disrupt your calm
