Re: cant stop won't stop

I've recently heard a lot of this in my studies, but very few users really realize that this drug even snorted is not addictive in and of itself, and it's actually near impossible to get a high from...

Re: Alcohol.

There are people who attend meetings that haven't been diagnosed as full-fledge alcoholics and there are many that use the meetings as a source of information. These groups are very open to having...

Re: Alcohol.

I agree with what people have said above. It's amazing that you've recognized that this is a problem. As others have suggested try and tell people you trust (that aren't a part of the problem) like...

Re: Physical/Somatic Symptoms.

Re: GAD ! Longterm General Anxiety Disorder

Re: Felt like a sociopath...

I agree, I think it is more of how you react to situations that make you nervous. It's actually a common reaction (at least more common than you would think) and it's nothing to worry about. People...
