I have been abusing alcohol for some years. I want to quit or at least tone it down.
Physical pain and fatigue is the reason I'm using.

I recently got into Ibuprofen big time. And it seems to be a nice replacement. But it is burning my stomach up...

Anyone have tips on alternatives or other solutions to this? (Legal)...

My husband had success with a mixture of non-alcoholic beer (he really likes Athletic Brewing Co.) and sparkling water. It’s like a placebo- he’s so used to having a drink in hand, so they make a decent replacement. Also when he was having to deal with withdrawals while cutting down he’d slowly water down his drinks more and more over time until the alcohol content was significantly reduced.

I've watch her kids a couple of times but she's never given me head or the poon... Just a smile, couple of rubs on the shoulders and chests. I feel like she's just using me as a baby sitter at this point.
Am I simping and getting played? She's really attractive and I have only had sex with one chick, never dated.
Yes I am very autistic.

She's using you, specially if you just except to see you as an amazing guy that deserves "a little treat". Like >>27374970 said, try telling her your intentions before you waste any more time. If things go right just get the head and run, what kind of sensible woman would let her kids with a male barely knows??
>>
>>27374295
Yes you fucking incel autist, smiles don't necessarily mean anything. It's called being polite. What "American" have to do with anything? She's using you to watch her children so she can go get filled with actual men's cum. Loser.

This is based. I despise putting on an act.

I keep having thoughts about dating my underage coworker. She's 3 years younger than me (16) and I know it's really fucking creepy to date a high school junior but my carnal instincts are screaming. I know she's into me too, I just know that my friends would shun me for dating her and I would be seen as a pedophile creep by basically anyone but her.
But also she's a broken girl with daddy issues and one of the best bodies I've ever seen. I fucking hate how society (especially where I live) hardcore judges guys for dating girls 2-3 years younger than them even though girls mature faster and first. I am immature and retarded and she's taking harder classes in high school than I am in college and yet I'm a pedophile for dating her. Kill me.

My error was in believing that she was at least comfortable enough with me that she wouldn't overreact. I don't know on what basis OP "knows" she's into him. Young men of his age tend to be poor judges of this.

>>27374212
the age difference between a 16 and 19 year old is utterly consequential
>>
>>27374212
just wait another year until you start dating her 17 and 20 are good numbers
or date her now, but dont make it official
>>
Here in Europe you can even legally date 15 year old even if you are 20 and nobody gives a fuck.

It's just, the one is in high school, the other is probably working.

19 and 16 is normal here. People even do 30 and 16 here.

You're the same type of idiot who sees a picture of 10 people and only 2 of them are black and you call the company racist for not having 50% of it's workers be black. It's literally impossible for every company to have 50% black workers unless we import like a hundred million people from Africa. Black people only make up 13% of the population, so if a company has 13% black employees, that IS equal representation.

How am I supposed to enjoy life when I know that death waits at the end? How do I enjoy life not knowing when and how death will hit me? It worries me so much that it sucks all joy out of life for me. Already doing CBT but results are yet to be seen. Ever since my grandmother died it feels like my innocence about life and death has been stripped away.

As a man how do you improve in the bedroom? What do you do to be better? Is 7x5 small?

Working out makes you have more endurance.
I don’t think 7x5 is smal but if she’s start talking shit just bring up how her tits are small or her ass or even her vagina. It’s hypocritical for a woman to judge when she isn’t packing either.

I am 27. I just started a highly ranked graduate program and thought these next two years would be among the happiest of my life. I had finally found the person I felt I was supposed to be with - the first person I truly loved unconditionally. The connection we had was so special. She truly knew me; she was the first person in my life I've been emotionally vulnerable around. I would have done anything for her. I was sure it would last forever. She felt the same way about me.

I expected to be spending every weekend with her - going hiking, having date nights, attending concerts. Cooking together. Taking pictures.

I wanted to get this degree so I could get a better paying job for us both. Once we both finished school we were supposed to get married, move to the country, have lots of kids, and grow old together.

For the first time since I was a child, life seemed like it made sense. The future was something to look forward to, not worry about.

How the fuck do you just move on? How do I keep going to class as if I have the same reason to? Would I be better off deciding not to look for anyone else or start a family? Do I just wait to die and then hope we're together in death in some spiritual sense?

I'm sorry for your loss, anon. Just remember that if there was someone out there for you, there might be one more. Spend your life looking for that person. With seven billion configurations of person on this wicked ball, you'll find someone you can love again.

But for now, let it hurt. Grieve and mourn for as long as you want. All I can promise you is that it will get better, with time.

This is called survival mode. You are no longer in creative mode. You've finally faced a situation where you have to make MAJOR, MAJOR, MAAAAAYYYYYJOR decision. Do what you want, this is your turn to play.

Distract yourself good and long enough (with some I thing you could find valuable spending your time on) to be able to look back and say it was better than using all of your energy mourning someone who didn’t want to be alive anymore.

My soulmate was in a murder-suicide when I was 22 and it put a giant gash in my psyche for sure. But if you think there’s something you can do to keep yourself moving on, try it and it might put you on the right path to heal that stuff. journaling, exercise, making yourself be around strangers, whatever it is. Best of luck man

No, she wasn't aimless. She was studying at a highly ranked school (mostly on scholarship).

People seem to assume to worst when you acknowledge that a person has red flags. I'm not saying they defined her or made her a bad person - I'm just admitting that, yes, she had risk factors for suicide. She was sexually abused as a child. She had a history of self harm. Two people close to her had committed suicide. She had some self-destructive behaviors, like binge-eating and reckless driving.

She was also intelligent, talented, sweet, and gentle.

>>27374928
I'm sad that she left, yes. I don't think she did so because she didn't reciprocate my feelings, though. I think she was in the grip of intense self-loathing and convinced herself that I didn't feel the same way, and that I'd be better off without her. She struggled a lot with feeling unworthy, unlovable, etc. I do wish I had made her happy enough to stay, but it's not her fault if I couldn't. I think I did for a while, but once I started grad school the fear of my abandoning her just became too much.

Why is modern women first reaction to pregnancy abortion? My girlfriend approached me and asked me money for an abortion because it seems got pregnant. She showed me the blood test and expected me to act like a coward nigger all sudden and break up or something.

I just told her that i I'm a grown ass 29 years old man and I am perfectly mature to understand that unprotected sex leads to pregnancy. And that meanwhile I'm clearly not rich i have savings for something like this and if she wanted to we could marry and raise our child together as wife and husband. I have my own apartament, it's 2 bedrooms and pretty small buy hey it's mine and it's in a central part of the city so i can sell it and we can buy a medium sized house in a rural area or something.

She was like "really anon? Do you want to? Really" and i was like. Yes. I'm not going to murder my own child. My Dad raised a man not a coward faggot.

And she began to cry and i must admit that it almost made me cry too. Why are women like this? Seriously. Why would my first reaction to "im pregnant" should be abortion? Why would her first reaction would be abortion?

Im afraid to ask about her past. I never asked because i never wanted to know. It's painful to ask such things. It hurts your pride as a man. But something tells she already aborted before. I'm afraid to even ask about it. I don't want to hear the answer.
>>
This is why people encourage people to wait for sex until after marriage. She's reasonable to think you wouldn't want a child since you haven't married her. I respect you for being a man and standing up to your obligations. Abortion is never the right answer. Marry the woman and raise a strong, decent child. Always be the stable one in the relationship. She will respect you for this. Good luck!
>>
One more thing. Don't ask about her past. It will hurt your ego. This is natural. Don't worry about the past. Focus on ya'lls future together.
>>
>>27376295
>Abortion is never the right answer.
I wouldn't go that far. Sometimes abortion is perfectly reasonable and the more caring option (towards the child).

>>27376243
Women always run away from responsibility. They've been given everything their whole lives and don't know the meaning of personal responsibility or the fact that there are consequences to their actions.

>>27376307
No, do ask her about the past. She won't tell you the truth, but you'll know how much of a chump she thinks you are based on her response.

In my opinion no
