Why'd you stop? You some kind of quitter?

[–] hardshaft 0 points 10 points (+10|-0) ago 

I can't speak for OP, but I quit unintentionally due to laziness. After some years it started getting boring, one day I just felt too lazy to order more and instead opted for weightlifting and good food. Plus it's nice having libido again and not constantly fighting constipation.

How do post a poat using Boats for Voat... these posts are lame and I need to post on IAMA. Are there account restrictions for new users? I litterally can't find "post" button anywhere on Boats. Is it just not supported?

How difficult is it to change the trunk springs in a 2000 Mercedes CLK 320? Do you have pictures illustrating how to complete this procedure?

[–] SirJiggzalot [S] 0 points 11 points (+11|-0) ago 

Dont know. And no.

[–] lord_nougat 0 points 9 points (+9|-0) ago 

Damn! That's precisely the correct answer! Thanks!

Thanks, Gravy!

Big ass pry-bar and some beefy channel-locks pliers. Also, why are you replacing the springs when it is the trunk struts that usually go out and cause the trunk to not stay open?

[–] lord_nougat 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

Because it's the coupe, not the convertible. For some reason, they engineered the trunk hinges completely differently between the convertible and the coupe - obviously for the sake of room for machinery and folded down top. The coupe does not have those struts.

So what actually made you clean yourself up? Like, please go into as much detail as possible.

For me, it was the realization that drugs had become the God of my life. I was committing idolatry. Instead of seeking God to heal me I was seeking drugs to heal me. I was serving drugs and Satan, not God. Sounds corny maybe, but for me thats what did it.

[–] middle_path 0 points 15 points (+15|-0) ago 

Whatever works for you.

I woke up in an E.R with a doc scowling and hollering at me. Made me quit.

[–] imback 1 points 9 points (+10|-1) ago 

My friend just died. No kidding. Stay away from everything. I was always trying to pull him up out of that lifestyle and for a while he showed promise. He had the most potential of all my friends and I looked forward to seeing his future unfold. But it's over. He will have no family, no kids, nothing else. His story ended abruptly. The rest of that group are still alive and doing the same shit. Hopefully his death will wake them up.

Goodbye bud. I'll miss you.

[–] SirJiggzalot [S] 0 points 10 points (+10|-0) ago 

Sorry for your loss ! Sucks . Addiction is no joke. Really, Im very sorry about your friend !

[–] imback 1 points 4 points (+5|-1) ago 

Thanks. Just found out a few minutes ago that he had already OD'ed in the past year with another friend who had administered narcan. Also just found out that he died alone. I'm upset that he didn't learn a lesson the first time but I know how this shit is. Still upset. Very upset. He was like a brother for a time.

It is if it's a clown doing cocaine

I suffered from my abusive alcoholic father throughouty childhood and beyond. There were many other contributing factors that created a sort of perfect storm of shit. I'm 31, never had a GF, women never found me interesting or even seemed to try to know me. They all seemed interested in me as much as I could entertain them with nights out, concerts, dinner,... And then quickly lost interest because I've always been and certainly now thanks to social rejection... I will remain a social outcast. I'll never have family, kids, wife, house,... And I've only done alcohol and cannabis. The cannabis now is my medication for my anxiety and stress which has seemingly increased over the years. As I realize more and more that I'm trudging through this miserable capitalist existence and I don't even have a reason for doing so like EVERYONE else. Apparently all I have is to not die, and if lucky no more than another 20yrs in this miserable existence.

So how do I fit into those statistics??

Trauma ruins lives, drug addiction is simply one of many symptoms.

This will sound gay as fuck but try it... Plant a garden. Really. I was more or less where you are and that was a colossal change for me. So nice to make and tend something and be rewarded. IDK.. It is so valuable. I have chickens and rabbits now as well. I love to just go chill in my rabbits little yard. I sit there on the bench and drink a beer just about every nice day I get. I love it.

[–] cantaloupe6 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

It might be difficult - change your focus away from your pain, outward. Read Seven habits of highly successful people. Enjoy nature. Chemical amusement is a time sink. Learn how to live well cheaply. Network. It's easiest to a find GF through a woman friend (28 yo) are looking for marriage. Embrace capitalism - do a service (for women) like painting. Get advice, get the most for your time. The garden idea is a good one. There is an enormous number enjoyable free activities. Consider changing your diet of ideas, to positive ones. You've suffered horribly at others hands, it took your past. Aim yourself towards a positive direction. A GF can contribute ideas it doesn’t have to be all you - they like a leader. Sorry for the traumatic childhood, perhaps you can be the father you'd have wanted to have.

You don't need to be part of a couple to be a whole person. I'm alot older than you and I've survived alone, I actually enjoy it.

[–] MegaDouche 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

If you can provide a good life for it, get a dog. You might meet woman that way but even if you don't you'll have a best friend that considers you a god and is always happy to see you. They don't fix you but they are called man's best friend for a reason.

[–] 24601_JeanValJean 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

Sorry for the loss of your friend. As a former addict myself I found the only thing that will change an addict's behavior is the addict him/herself. Nothing else. Not overdosing, not the death of a friend (that won't happen to me) not jail, not selling one's self respect for some dope will do it. It has to be from within the addict's own being.

[–] MegaDouche 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

So did mine but I'm old enough and hardened by life enough to think he got the better deal. Potential is overrated.

Would you say that marijuana was a "gateway drug" in your case?

[–] SirJiggzalot [S] 0 points 40 points (+40|-0) ago 

No. Beer was.

[–] B166-ER 0 points 17 points (+17|-0) ago 

Let's be honest though, as someone with a horrible childhood... The drugs and booze we're not a gateway... My childhood abuse was the gateway drug.

[–] altaccounttwo 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

Can confirm. Beer leads to cigarettes which makes sweet Mary Jane look appealing. If I had gone straight for weed I doubt I ever would have picked up a beer.

wait, doesn't the beer industry lobby against legalization?

[–] Moatman 3 points -2 points (+1|-3) ago 

I know im a little late but why would you put beer as your gateway? Do you think weed was part of the starting issue?

What's the most reprehensible thing you've ever done to get your fix?

[–] SirJiggzalot [S] 0 points 11 points (+11|-0) ago 

Idk ? Pawn girlfriends jewelry, steal cash from my mother , take your pick.

[–] The-Dude-Abides 0 points 9 points (+9|-0) ago 

We already established that in a comment above. He slobbed on a knob once.

[–] SirJiggzalot [S] 2 points 13 points (+15|-2) ago 

Think you're confusing me with you're mom.

[–] Gorillion 0 points 9 points (+9|-0) ago

LOL, that comment went down below. Just like he did.

"slobbed on a knob". This is why I love Voat.

Did you ever suck dick for heroin?

[–] SirJiggzalot [S] 1 points 26 points (+27|-1) ago 

No, but I heard your mom does. Lol.

[–] The-Dude-Abides 1 points 8 points (+9|-1) ago 

Shes a nice lady. Leave her out of this you cocksmoocher

[–] Darl_Von_Kibble 1 points 3 points (+4|-1) ago 

That was my mom. Wait,

[–] SirJiggzalot [S] 1 points 2 points (+3|-1) ago 

No but I licked your moms pussy once, that was my rock bottom .

[–] HST 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago 

Why are you responding to shit twice, hours apart? Still doing heroin mate?

[–] green_man 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Interesting, you posted two replies to my single comment. I'm guessing you fried your brain, you're still using, or both. My money is on both.

[–] Hayashimo 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

How does it get the the point that you think something so dangerous is worth it?

[–] SirJiggzalot [S] 0 points 13 points (+13|-0) ago 

For me it was like this, I had a percocet habit, was dope sick at work and some guys were talkin bout scoring dope at lunch, so I asked em to get me a couple bags. It was love at first sniff, I know that sounds sick, but I literally said to myself, " Where have you been all my life." Like a toxic lover. She's a psycho bitch you know is no good for you but the sex is so damn good. Like that I guess.
