Honoring My Friend's Legacy: A Message of Hope and Support for Those Struggling with Alcoholism

2023.06.04 12:47 ajuman Honoring My Friend's Legacy: A Message of Hope and Support for Those Struggling with Alcoholism

Dear Reddit Community,
Today, I come to you with a heavy heart but a renewed sense of purpose. My dear friend, who battled his own demons, recently passed away. In his final moments, he made a request that has resonated deeply within me. He asked that I continue using this Reddit account to help people struggling with alcoholism and to open myself to those who love them. Today, I honor his memory by fulfilling that promise.
Alcoholism is a formidable foe that affects countless lives, tearing apart families and friendships. It's a topic often stigmatized and misunderstood, leaving those who suffer feeling isolated and ashamed. My friend recognized this all too well, and through his own battles, he understood the importance of reaching out and offering support.
To anyone reading this who is facing their own struggle with alcoholism, please know that you are not alone. There are people who care deeply about your well-being and want to help you through this difficult journey. Whether you are just starting to acknowledge the impact alcohol has on your life or have been battling it for years, this community is here for you.
I invite you to share your stories, ask for advice, or simply vent your frustrations. Together, we can provide a safe space where understanding, compassion, and encouragement prevail. I encourage you to open up and connect with others who may be facing similar challenges, for it is through shared experiences that we find strength and healing.
To the friends and loved ones of those struggling with alcoholism, I implore you to be patient, empathetic, and supportive. It can be incredibly difficult to watch someone you care about grapple with addiction, but remember that your love and understanding can make a significant difference. Educate yourself about alcoholism, seek guidance from professionals, and most importantly, be there to listen and offer a helping hand without judgment.
In memory of my friend, I dedicate myself to being an ally on this journey, offering a compassionate ear, words of encouragement, and resources that may aid in recovery. Together, we can create a community that fosters hope, understanding, and growth.
Please feel free to reach out, whether it's through comments, private messages, or even starting a new thread. Remember, seeking help is a sign of strength, and every step forward is a victory worth celebrating.
Let us come together, hand in hand, and shine a light on the path towards recovery and healing.
With heartfelt regards,

2023.06.04 12:47 PopularFunction5202 Midwest Reptile Show today!! 😃😃😃😃 (T convert here!)

I am so excited to attend the Midwest Reptile Show today in Indianapolis! 6 months ago it would have been the last activity I'd ever plan to do. At the moment, I am not in the proper circumstances to care for a T, or even a jumper. I am going to attend the show to look at them in person, and hopefully take some photos. I've seen tarantulas in person once, at a pet store, since I joined Reddit a few months ago, I wondered if I would be scared or freaked out. It's one thing to see your all's lovely videos and photos of tarantulas, another to see them in person. That which I saw was a very pretty red knee. I'm thrilled to see many different species today! Just wanted to share my excitement! Have a great day, everyone!

2023.06.04 12:47 daddydilly694-20 I'm seeing someone today, might end up staying the night.

For context, we are both young (19).
I have a hard time getting rid of the jitters when first meeting someone, I'm a bit nervous and always feel stressed until we end up becoming physically intimate.
Not trying to sound like an ass, but sex is a good way to break the ice for me. However, I never expect it and don't ever initiate unless there is clear chemistry and consent has been established beforehand. For a few reasons I'm not comfortable discussing here, I don't feel like that will be happening today, which is probably a good thing. Don't want to rush things again.
I'm just nervous as hell, I'm terrible at talking to women, and my anxiety level is pretty high when I first meet someone.
I suppose I'm overthinking this, but I'm not sure how I should go about getting rid of my anxiety.
Any tips on getting rid of the anxiety associated with first meeting someone?
Thanks in advance guys.

2023.06.04 12:46 nirekj Account Issues - how do I get support?

So I was playing earlier today and as we were loading into a match, I got kicked back to the loading screen.
I was then asked to re link my accounts etc which was weird as I had already done this and has my account set up properly.
I’ve been running around in circles trying to work out what had happened to no avail.
I have disappeared from my friends lists when I asked them to check, however what I did find, was my account name has been changed.
I am suspecting that maybe my account has been hacked? I don’t understand how when I have no emails or notifications about changes being made etc but I have no other explanation for why I just randomly lost my account but can see it if I search this alternate username.
Who can I contact and quickly to get this sorted out? I have spent a significant amount of time and money on this game - and it’s really frustrating to not be able to find a contact number for support particularly when suspecting something like this.

2023.06.04 12:45 MonyWony Sorely disappointed in a recent update (Mastery Tree No Longer Resets) V Sad

So just today I decided to play a little Forza Horizon 5 and saw I was running a little low on cash, so I decided that I would do my favourite money-making method; spend a while grinding skill points, buy a Pontiac Firebird FE, fill out the mastery to get 2 super wheel spins, then resell the car to either get the money I spent on it back, or reclaim the car with a fresh mastery tree.
But low and behold I see that about a 3rd of the cars I purchased already had their masteries completed. I checked the recent updates and saw that apparently, Forza fixed the bug that "unintendedly reset car masteries for a vehicle if listed on the Auction House".
So now I just wasted 2 million coins, and have no way to make money (at least until I find another method). So I gotta hope that someone buys those cars I put back on the auction or else I will have 8 useless Pontiacs that I will have forever.
It's also taken a bit of a toll on the economy, some of the cars that people used for grinding wheel spins have no more value. The Pontiac dropped by about 200k in value.
I am so annoyed that this happened and wish that the Forza devs would change it back.
And please don't comment just saying "Suck it up" or "Quit whining it's just a game" or anything I just wanted to rant, you don't have to agree with me but please don't pester me.

2023.06.04 12:44 Kitchen_Talk_3304 Random Expression of thoughts and feelings about self-isolation

Hello dear people, I had a rather usual but unpleasant experience yesterday, which I would like to write about and get off my chest. Maybe some of you can relate or have had similar experiences.
I went to a club alone to dance and talked to really nice people in the queue. During the conversation, I noticed that I was building a wall internally between myself and the people around me, and between my external self and my inner thoughts. It feels as if I'm not really present. Even now, as I write this, I can feel myself tensing my jaw, and a thought, still wordless and formless, hovers above my head. It's almost as if I'm afraid of saying or being something wrong, or being discovered, and that thought takes the form of a destructive sword that hangs over me (is that why they say the sword of Damocles hangs over someone? ^^). Anyway, those were really nice people, but I noticed that at some point, I became quite distant and felt like I shouldn't be there or participate in the casual and relaxed conversations (to make the feeling bearable, I tell myself that the people are uninteresting anyway). I was completely sober that evening, only drank an energy drink, and smoked many cigarettes. As I write now, I feel a strong longing to go back and do things differently, but I know that's not possible. In particular, I would like to tell a young man named Olli that he's really adorable and I find him likable. He exuded a naive innocence that I believe, or at least think, I will NEVER have again and never truly had.
I noticed the feeling of alienation when someone asked for my name. It felt as if that information was somewhere in my mind, or rather in my body, but at that moment, almost like a hard drive error in a computer, it wasn't available. When asked about my current occupation (I'm a student), I could only utter one word: my field of study. No enthusiasm about it, I "forgot" what I do there. It's as if I don't really experience what I do on a daily basis. I had this phenomenon during my bachelor's degree as well. After a day of studying, I would realize on my way home how much I had been clenching my jaw. On that way home, I regularly, if not almost always, had to sit alone in the car for 10 minutes or find a closed quiet place where no one could see me and "shake it off." The shaking off was a ten-minute act, my whole body trembled intensely, my thoughts raced, and although not chaotic, they were not particularly meaningful. At least, I hadn't thought for a long time that it wasn't normal and that I needed help. Even today, I don't have a real sense that I have truly completed (and experienced) my first degree. This is how I feel about many things or events in my life (even complete chapters of life are forgotten or cannot be reached in terms of feelings for this chapter). I engage in strength training at a relatively high level and objectively have the corresponding physical appearance. I occasionally hear comments about it. Only now, at 28, can I slowly believe and accept that people are not lying to me, not trying to take something away from me, not expressing their envy (if at all), not trying to harm me, but simply expressing that they appreciate what I do. This is also valid in other fields, like work-related appreciation or the appreciation of me as a friend to my dearest friends.
In my first relationship, which started when I was 23, a woman told me for the first time, aside from my mother, that she loves me. In that moment, I had a panic attack. Objectively speaking, life is good to me. But, I can rarely form clear thoughts that would bring about a change in my circumstances or accept the present circumstances and see myself and my fellow human beings for what we are: humans, with good sides, weaknesses, lies, and deep truths. I suffer from isolating myself. But in the moments when it happens, I feel utterly powerless. Last night, someone in the queue offered me gin, although I never drink alcohol. I took a tiny sip and felt that something was wrong; the feeling of alienation became even stronger. I asked the person who offered me the gin if there was something else in it, and she denied it. I noticed how genuinely concerned people were about me. I had the urge to confess to them that I was having a small, silent internal panic attack at the moment, that I was afraid that they didn't like me, but what's even worse, that they did like me, that they trusted me, that they found me likable, and that they could see how much I would love to live, but I hide it behind a facade of rationality and efficiency. All the things I truly need to live (and not just survive), I actively push away (and regret it at the same time, but I realize that the good feeling of being human together is (for me) like suppressing the urge to vomit in public, to avoid the shame of vomiting in public and also to avoid seeing what was inside me and is now in the toilet, not allowed to come up). I don't trust the statements of most people and spend a lot of mental effort analyzing their intentions. Most of the time, I don't assume that the intentions are good, neither with other people nor with myself. The thought that people have good intentions scares me, perhaps because it's not as easily categorizable and controllable as the opposite assumption, namely that people generally have no good intentions. Maybe I'm also envious of people like the young man Olli in the story, who seemingly have no problems, no racing thoughts, no shaky ground beneath their feet, and the feeling that at any moment, a statement could be made about them revealing what a bad person he is, and the consequence would be that he's forever banished. At the core, I'm a helpful, loving person and I think I've understood what the important things in life are. I just find it incredibly difficult not to disgust myself and to touch the feelings, even my self-perception (the feeling of myself, not self-esteem). I tend to intellectualize a lot and touch that self-perception with gloves made of cumbersome thoughts and word constructions. But I realize that's not the solution and I don't want it anymore.
There have been and continue to be moments when none of this is true, with trusted friends or when I'm alone, mostly in nature. Basically, I'm afraid of isolation in both directions: if I show myself (even to myself) as I am in this moment, I have a great fear that it's "too much" and that I repel or overwhelm people, pushing them away. On the other hand, if I don't show myself as I am, which is more often the case, the isolation has already taken place. There is no human exchange happening. Somehow, as I write this down, it appears to me like a funny dilemma, a tragicomedy. I know that the only way out is to show myself as I am, even though it disgusts me and is difficult for me.
Thank you for reading. If you can say something about it or know if other people feel the same way, please let me know. Feel free to ask further questions. I've considered doing an Ask Me Anything (AmA) as this story is certainly not build on a random occasion but the result of the life i have been living until now, but for now, I just wanted to write down and share the experiences of last night, since this story represents a quasi pars pro toto.
I wish you all well, if not now, then soon :)

2023.06.04 12:44 DawnOfLegion1 Who is on your "most stylish wrestlers ever" Mount Rushmore?

My all-time list would be Ric Flair (the grandfather of immaculate suit game), The Rock (Versace shirt era + Hollywood Rock's leather drip), Jesse Ventura (wore a lot of.. interesting things, yet made it work), and finally Batista (probably the most well dressed big man of all time, plus his style evolved over time).
As far as today's wrestlers, I'd go with Seth Rollins, Ricky Starks, SANADA, and of course Cody Rhodes. Honorable mentions go to MVP, The Miz, and Pretty Deadly.

2023.06.04 12:44 katelyn6262 Prom dress

I’m feeling kinda hurt and i would appreciate advice on a situation happening between me and my close friend/co worker. We have been friends for 3 years and are both 19, I’m not living with my parents and for the most part pay my own way. My prom is coming up on the 20th and the dress I had no longer is wearable due to a recent weight change. My friend has her dress from last year and she told me I should come over and try it on, that was 3 days ago and today I asked if she had asked her mom yet if I can wear it (her mom bought it) and she only told me she doesn’t want to talk about it, and that she’s busy. I know she’s second guessing letting me wear her dress because it’s special to her but If I’m being honest, I’m hurt over it. I keep on thinking how I’d help her in this situation. If she doesn’t say anything tomorrow I’ll use my credit card to buy a dress and it’ll probably get here on time. I would appreciate advice on how to handle and not hold a grudge against her.

2023.06.04 12:43 raicopk Introducing r/Socialism's new post flairs and 2023's user survey!

Introducing Socialism's new post flairs and 2023's user survey!
Greetings everyone! We have some news for you all that we are excited to share!
For a link to the survey, please scroll down to the bottom.
New post flairs!
Awhile ago, after realizing that post flairs had gone missing for some (still unknown) reason, we added a selection of post flairs which we hoped could be useful. This, which was done rapidly and without adding much thought to it, was essentially a way of categorizing content by type of content (images, videos, news, etc.). It was nice to have, but didn't really serve of much.
Today, on the other hand, we are introducing a new system of topic-based post flairs which we think can be much more useful, as it will provide users with the ability to differentiate and search-for posts based on general but concrete topics.
Similarly, the new system also responds to some suggestions on last year's user survey (see below!) which suggested emphasizing the role and importance of struggles like Feminism, Anti-Racism, LGTBIQ+ liberation and Anti-Imperialism. Feel free to let us know if there is anything which we might have missed (take into account that those should not be too specific!).

The image shows the list of post flairs which the new topic-based post flairs system consists of: a selection of topics such as political economy, ecologism, political theory, activism...
Subreddit's 2023 user survey!
It has been over one year since our last user survey (see the results here), so it's finally time for this year's version!
For those new to the subreddit, we have done, since 2014, a minimum of one yearly user survey with which to collectively get to know the demographics of the subreddit's user base. Besides providing interesting data, though, these surveys also allow us to better understand the community and adequately address it.
The survey is completely anonymous and covers topics of general demographics, ideological and political values and subreddit-related questions. It should take about 10 minutes to complete.
State of the subreddit
Although you can (and are encouraged to!) create meta posts at any given time, we would love to use this opportunity to listen to any thoughts and/or suggestions that you might have for the subreddit and how it's moderated.
Whether it is in the dedicated survey question (where you can do so anonymously) or in the comments section, please do not hesitate to share any feedback you might have to improve the subreddit. Is there anything you would like to see more of? Anything you'd like to change? Something which you think would provide a great addition? We promise we do read and try to consider every suggestion as much as it is possible!
We look forward to your participation!

It was 20 years ago today the city won the bid and I think overall was good for the city.
The Echo arena was built and the city centre through Liverpool one became modern and linked up the waterfront to the City Centre.
Some negatives is that I don't think the city pushed on in the decade following like Manchester have also places like Anfield and Kensington look the same if not worse.
