Since joining this board, my appreciation and love for Morrissey (solo) has been strongly rekindled... It's pretty weird. It's kind of amazing too. This must be what born-again Christians feel like, only I still don't think of Morrissey as Jesus...
Thanks for that, Innernette. Thanks for bringing some joy and excitement to my thus-far unhappy decade+.
Hell, I've even been neglecting my duties to The Smiths as a result...

Sister, I'm a pissant.
You're a big man, but you're in bad shape. With me it's a full-time job. Now behave yourself.
In post what you're thinking news, I had a type of, let's say "Teddy Bear" that gave me comfort that I resolved to drop with the new year because I thoughtit enabled something altogether unhealthy. Since dripping it I've become depressed, especially at night. I wake up lost. And my enabling brain keeps rationalizing through "signs" or whatever to embrace the concept, for the sake if the Teddy Bear! So I'm stuck in this battle of wills wondering which mentally unhealthy thing is healthier to do, because its no fun being lost in the middle if the night.
I say all this waiting for a bed to donate blood. Some lucky person gets my crazy O neggie!
But don't allow yourself to get caught in circular reasoning. If you are giving up this "Teddy Bear" then any sign to go back to doing it is void because that is part of giving it up.
Sort of like giving up smoking. When you quit your body goes through both physical and psychological changes. You may see cigarettes everywhere and your body tells you that you need to start smoking again. You feel unwell, experience flu like symptoms and put on weight. Again you think, I should go back to smoking. That it is what defines you and you think you can't live without it. You tell yourself that you should resign yourself to that is how life should be and how it should be lived. These are all signs of your body and mind trying to convince of something untrue. Part of the relinquishing cigarettes is experiencing that. It is the process and those feelings and thoughts should be ignored because in time they will pass.

As my contribution to the thread is it wrong that I am slightly obsessed with the messages left on the reputation point section in settings? It's like having my own secret admirers and detractors. Clearly my life needs to become more interesting.

I wonder if the tobacco industry would pay off any inventor of such a treatment for nicotine addiction.
