Sup dudes.

So I am actually officially back on INTL, I have a laptop of my own now for college and shit and I guess I'll be regularly dropping by.

So, like here's the update.

I totally stopped doing drugs, I'm going to college in 14 days to major in finance with a pre-law focus. I've been in outpatient rehab for about a month now, which has been that kind of rock bottom experience I needed to finally get my shit together. I'll probably continue doing outpatient classes at another hospital by my campus for at least the first semester or two I'm there, which is by my own choice, because I've realized I really do need the help.

I was looking over some of my old posts with a very odd feeling. Last time I was a regular poster here was like two years ago, I was a 16 year old kid who thought he was invincible. I come back now as a legal adult, and really wish I could undo some of the things I was advocating in those old ranting posts of mine.

Life is fucking serious, that's been my most profound epiphany. I could have ended up so much worse than I am now. I could fill up a few pages about all the crazy ass close calls I've been in, all the near misses and chest clutching moments. It hasn't been worth it.

I feel I've had enough psychedelic experiences and mind expanding trips for one life time, it's time to plug myself into reality and stop trying to escape through these substances, because that's what it really boiled down to, escapism.

Now I am not some turn-around judgmental teetotaler. I've realized that moderation with substances such as alcohol and pot are just fine, as long as I don't let the acquisition and consumption of said substances affect my daily life. It is possible to use them responsibly, and have a merry time. Anything harder than that, fuck it. Never, ever again.

Anyway, I just kind of felt like writing this stuff down, hopefully some of you all can relate to it.

Much <3 INTL and I'm totally going to stick around for real this time

P.S. thanks for keeping my lounge i'm a serial-killer :)

Congrats on getting your life together. That sort of experience and commitment to reality will come in handy as the following years bring you more responsibility. Good luck.

I wish my younger brother could have had such an experience. He can't even hold down the most menial of jobs and has pretty much given up on life. Of course, pot and alcohol are involved, but in his case, I think they are more symptoms than causes.

If you've had drug problems in the past though, it's never easy to totally escape them. Moderation is fine, but becomes difficult for those that have been on the extremes. I know an alcoholic in the area who insists he's living a "moderate" lifestyle and only drinks a "few" (10-20) beers a day.

On the other hand, my mom has been going to AA for years and keeps telling me "once an alcoholic, always an alcoholic". I don't really buy that, but it might be a good philosophy to have for someone that has trouble with moderation.

How can you say that?

If you hadn't of learned something important from all of those "near misses" and "close ass calls", you probably wouldn't be tooting your own horn on how much have you matured. In fact, if you had floated through all of that learning nothing from the experience, you probably would still be loading up on drugs and making your existence as valuable to society as an amoeba.

I meant the actual drug use itself is what's not worth it, and the close calls, although I suppose they were learning experiences, I'd probably rather I didn't have to have them.

If you didn't have them, you would never had realized the value of life?

If you never had that realization, would you be better off or worse off?

It's possible that he could have come to similar realizations through other (safer) means.

I doubt it.

We humans do not learn or progress unless there is a problem forcing us to do so.

If Napoleon did not have a problem keeping his food fresh during his campaigns, he would have never commissioned someone to create an effective method of canning.

If the Allied powers were not concerned that the Axis powers were developing a nuclear bomb of their own, they themselves would have never bothered to make one.

And if Skizzle had never learned how easily life is taken away by substance abuse, he would not have had the "epiphany" to clean up his life and discontinue using drugs.

In other news, I have just recently started several debilitating drug habits.

I feel like I've had enough mundane experiences and mind numbing trips to work, school, the doctor, and the occasional prostitute. I think it's time to plug myself into fantasy and stop trying to escape through reality. Because that's what it boils down to...escapism.

I think sometimes it pays to realize that most of us just aren't dying fast enough!

Good job. Your next challenge is to cure the deadly cancer and for extra credit AIDS.
"We've arranged a civilization in which most crucial elements profoundly depend on science and technology. We have also arranged things so that almost no one understands science and technology.

We could "cure" cancer with the aid of eugenics and the clean-up of the environment and prevent AIDS through the promotion of safer sex practices, abstinence, or death. It's technocrats like you who think that can fix all of society's many problems by stuffing a pill down our mouth or a needle in our arm, not by empowering people to fix it on their own.

Indeed, you would be out of the job if that ever happened! And that, of course, would be a bad thing for yourselves... society.
