Hello, Ops.

Instead of pathetic, I think you're incredibly brave. It took courage to post this and open yourself up to possible negative feedback. It took courage to admit you have a problem. It took courage to ask for help.

I've seen some excellent advice in the replies to your thread. It is important to start walking the road to recovery quickly; you have taken the first step on that road already.

Please know that I will help you in any way I can.

Please Stop Writing on my thread. I am asking nice. And by the way, if you ever have any problems and needed a friend or a nice word and wrote about it. I would have been one of the first to try and help and if I wasn't helping you, hurting you instead I would instantly wish you luck and move on. Please do the same for me.

Well you shouldn't feel like that... addiction and are depression are not signs of weakness, failure or anything like that.... the fact that you reached out and asked for someone to talk to, called out to your fellow beings/members/friends just shows that you know you need to change and that you are willing to do something.

You should never feel like that... don't think of yourself as a loser, you are whatever you want to be and whatever you can dream that you are.







Why are things in this world so hard and stressful and expensive, and why am I so weak I let it all get me down and BAM Here I am back Addicted.



Well that's what happens.... everyone has their crutch... everyone has their addictions.. some are just more destructive and unhealthy than others.
All you need to do, is as you've said, start talking to people... ask for the love and support of your family and know within yourself that you have to change and you have to try and make this work.

It may be a long journey....but even a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step





Sorry I know you guys probably don't wanna hear this crap, I just felt like I needed someone today, and had things to say and found myself here on ATS.




Some people may not want to hear it and that's fine, they wont read the thread... others will take the time, respond, empathise and try their best to help and offer advice.
That's life... you get assholes and you get decent people who help others when they're down.

Ignore morons like the first guy who posted and just focus on the positive and helpful advice and words that people have offered... I'm sure within this diverse community there are others who have been where you are, have stood where you're standing now... at the bottom of a pit, looking up thinking there's no way out.

But there is.







I will say I am struggling with my Faith Cause I feel like God doesn't hear my prayers and doesn't care. I am so confused.




Well perhaps god doesn't answer prayers? Who knows.

I'm not religious so I'm not here to tell you about faith or god.

what I will tell you is to focus on yourself and your friends and family and partner.
They are what's important and they will be the one's who are there... you need all your energy and relying on a god who may or may not be there is probably not what's best right now.

If you find comfort and solace in God that I am not telling you to not carry on with that, don't get me wrong... I am saying that if it's not helping and it's putting extra stress and worry on you... forget all that for now and just focus on getting straight and working things out.

Good luck and I hope it all works out.

Don't forget there is always someone prepared to listen at ATS

even if the first idiot makes you think otherwise

I'm sorry but who the F do you think you are?

How heartless and cruel your post was... to someone who was asking out for help?

Why don't you do as you have been asked by others and now by the OP herself, and just clear off?

Seriously.

You're not helping and you're just being nasty.

You've been doing it for 3 pages now??

And guess what?

The thread is still here... what does that tell you?

It should tell you that ATS and its moderators and owners decide what it fit and proper on this site... and NOT you.

This isn't some idiot telling us about their great "trip".... this is a person pouring their heart out and asking for some help man.

Have some #ing respect...

Hello, satron


I don't mean to offend anyone, but shouldn't your complaint be addressed to the staff here?

It just doesn't seem right (at least, to me) for someone to come into this thread and begin to degradate someone who has made a plea for help and guidance because they are unhappy with the application of board policy.

You've missed the point this entire time. This thread isn't about someone advocating drug use, which is against T&C, this is a thread from someone who is asking for help after an addiction of, in their own words, "Nothing like I used to, but now it seems booze and xanex seem to be turning into a daily habit for me." From reading your posts you seem to have obviously missed that they said this, the impression you seem to have is of her saying something very, very different.

So no, they're not talking about taking Illegal drugs which you seem to believe. This is a very real problem being brought up, one which affects a lot of people and there's absolutely nothing wrong with this thread being here. So maybe change that pathetic attitude of yours already. It's not helpful and It's already been made aware to you, even by the OP, that it's not welcome.

If you don't know and it doesn't matter, then tell me why you bring such self-evident absurdities up?

Maybe I have you confused with someone else, no offence meant.

Get a washable marker, write on your bathroom mirror!!! Write personal goals. Write positive attributes about yourself. Get big paper and write the same thing again and again!

My prayers go up for you. Take each minute, hour one at a time, and say to yourself, I made it another hour, I CAN MAKE THE NEXT HOUR TOO. Till you make it for a day, then you can say, I made it through a whole day, I can make it for an hour once more, click them off one by one, then you will have another day.

You just did the hardest part and that was sharing with your family and friends. You are not alone in this, we are here for you. Every time you think you can't succeed, contact someone. Search the avatars for ones online and message to see if they can spend a few minutes talking with you, call a family member who is supportive and see if they can talk for awhile or come over. You are reaching out, many of us have been there or know someone else who is. If you find there is no one available, that is not a reflection on you, but everybody is busy and making time is hard. Just remind yourself, they may be available later on, so tell yourself I CAN HOLD ON A LITTLE LONGER.

Blessings dear heart, ps only read and reread the positive notes, and refuse to look at the negatives till you are stronger.

Doing what?


And guess what?

That this thread is somehow unique. But is the problem faced by the OP really unique? No. But where are the other threads with the same subject? They've been dumped. I've seen them personally, and then they disappear.


It should tell you that ATS and its moderators and owners decide what it fit and proper on this site... and NOT you.


Well, historically, these threads would get dumped. You think I just thought that out of the blue?


This isn't some idiot telling us about their great "trip"....


I never said he was, DON'T YOU EVER PUT WORDS IN MY MOUTH AGAIN.


this is a person pouring their heart out and asking for some help man.

Have some #ing respect...

And I'm sure they aren't the first. Think about that!

It's obvious to me, maybe others. You have a personal agenda on this thread. To get it closed, because you want it to be.

As I said before...this thread is not about you. Also, even though it's been written multiple times, the OP is a she, not a he as you keep posting.

OP....I'm glad you are going to spend more time here on ATS. As you can see...you have many friends rooting, praying for you. You are worth living a healthy happy life. You will accomplish this goal, I have faith in you.

Maybe, but I'd like other people to hear about it.

I haven't denigrated anyone, nor am I trying to.

I offered some advice. But there is something else here to look at, and we should.

I hope you don't mind me saying but honestly, that's really astounding advice, in my opinion. I hope the OP, as well as those who may be reading from a similar position, take note of it. I imagine it will prove very helpful to a lot of people out there.

In reply to the OP as well - It's these kind's of posts that I was talking about before as well you know. ATS can be an extremely helpful place a lot of the time.

Then go start your own thread with your issues....stop trying to derail the OP's heartfelt reaching out for friends....in other words....you've already been told, multiple times. You are not welcome. The OP very kindly asked you to leave her thread alone. Take your AGENDA elsewhere. Please...

OP...I apologize for addressing this poster again. I'll not be doing that again. I just remembered...don't feed the trolls.
