Is it possible to ever have a good relationship with alcohol?

2021.12.09 00:45 Arm-Life Is it possible to ever have a good relationship with alcohol?

I have been an alcoholic since I was 18. I drank every weekend but over the course of two years it progressed to almost everyday. I will go on benders and binge drink and then take a day or two in between and then I’m back to drinking again. I’ll usually drink 5-6 drinks before I’m drunk because I’m pretty small and it doesn’t take much but my tolerance has definitely gone way up. I got into an argument with one of my friends who Is a “recovered” alcoholic yesterday. He has been to rehab for alcohol and drinks casually but he’s called me 2-3 times out of the 1 year I’ve known him completely obliterated. He tells me that if you are completely sober, alcohol still rules your life and it’s not the way to live. I told him I felt like if I ever drank again, one drink would turn into two, then three, etc. I don’t think alcoholics can ever learn to be casual drinkers but he thinks differently. He also doesn’t think it’s a disease. What is your opinion? Do you think an alcoholic can ever have a good relationship with alcohol?

My(23F) bf(23M+)and I had an exam and I did kind of well but he didn’t do that well. He says he is fine but ik he is just pretending to be fine. It was an important exam for the both of us. We both wanted to do well and get in the same college. He now says that I deserve someone better and that I shouldn’t be around him and I don’t deserve this negativity. He said if he do get in next year he will think about it. He isn’t even ready to talk to me on call. How do I help him? I told him we both can do well in the upcoming exam(2nd/3rd most imp exam)that is due next month We both are grown ups but we both take studies seriously. We both were preparing for an entrance exam to get into a college for masters. Also I haven’t written the exact age coz we both use Reddit a lot and he will know it right away. I don’t know how to help him. I honestly wouldn’t have done well in this without his help. He was there by my side and always helped me out. I wanna be by his side and help him. He has already been through a lot and I don’t want him to deal with anything alone. His parents aren’t also that supportive. But I don’t know how to help him now. Am I been too pestering? Or I should keep doing it to bring him out of his shell. I wanna help him out. Pls tell me what should I do.I honestly haven’t been happy since he told me he messed up and I have cried a few times already coz I wanted both of us to do well. I always thought I will be the one screwing up coz he is smarter than me. What should I do?
TLDR: my bf and I had an exam but he messed up and is saying I deserve someone better. Ik he isn’t fine and I wanna help him. What to do?

2021.12.09 00:45 justchampagneprobs Just found out my bf slept with someone during an 8 week breakup 2+ years ago

First time poster here:
Me (25f) and my bf (26m) started dating summer of 2017. We slept together 9 months in and were each others firsts. In the spring of 2019, we broke up because he had a lot of shit going on and was having a hard time balancing a crazy work life (a mix of day/overnight/weekend shifts at about 50hrs a week) and "long" distance of about 2hrs. His mental health was suffering and fortunately shortly after got the opportunity to change jobs to a 40hr M-F job. We met back up after about 7 weeks apart initially so I could give him back the things he had kept at my house and we talked for 2 hours standing next to our cars in a mall parking lot halfway between us. We began texting again and he asked if we could meet up again. We did about a week later. We had a talk where he told me about how overwhelmed he had been at the time and ended up taking it out on me by breaking up. He had realized how much he missed me and that he really wanted to try again. We agreed to go slow and talk/work through any issues either of us had. He had casually been seeing an old coworker of his and I had been talking with a guy off tinder. While we were together, we both messaged the other people to end things. Since then, he has been wonderful. He has moved in with me and found a job down here, and we have been working together about communicating better to prevent old issues from reoccurring. It wasn't until last night (2.5y later) that I found out he had actually slept with the other girl, basically by accident. We were joking about some things (in bed) and I said "well it's not like you have much to compare me to" and he replied with "yeah I've only slept with two people." I totally frozen and didn't even know what to say. I don't care about body count or necessarily even that he slept with her (although it stings a little that he was able to move on so quickly), but at a minimum it seems reasonable to have told me when we got back together so that I could ask him to get tested or whatever. I had assumed he would have told me if anything like that happened between them and I felt betrayed that he never did. I really do love him and we've discussed getting married, etc in the not so distant future. I just don't know if this is a red flag/what to do with this information.

2021.12.09 00:45 thekoreanaccountant Anyone have a running race event business?

This year my hubby said to me "For the amount of time you spend looking at the next race you'll run, you'll probably be organizing your own races just so you can run for free." Which got me thinking, does anyone have a business where they organize races from 5ks to marathons for clients? I have an accounting and small business background so I'm very intrigued by his comment. Thanks!

2021.12.09 00:45 AnotherDayOfFighting Tired of Fighting

About 5 years ago, i was hit hard by anxiety. Hard as in having my personality ripped out of my hands. Having my entire entity destroyed to the point where i had to learn even the most basics of things. I was somehow (dont know how) able to keep my severe level of my disease hidden from most people. I was studying my dream degree. Praised by everybody around me for my work. But that was all i had energy to do. Work on my studies. The rest of the time i spend in my apartment. Scared of everything. Paranoid and dealing with my illness to the best of my ability. Every morning i woke up, my first thought was "How am i gonna survive today" and the last thought of the day was "how am i gonna survive tomorrow". I was deeply ashamed of my struggles. I was in my early 20s, the best years of life. Yet i was fighting for everything.
after 1,5 years of therapy, it was like i stepped out of a haze, where anxiety didn't control me anymore. But with that came the realization of how my life looked like. Up until this point, all my focus went on survival and holding on to my studies which was a massive motivation. But my life was fucked. I felt completely alone, hundreds of miles away from my family. And then came the depression, quickly evolving into suicidal thoughts. I quickly began in therapy again and luckily after 6 months the suicidal thoughts were gone, but i was back to having anxiety (although not as severe as in the beginning) and a mild depression. hurray i guess.
Fast forward to right before covid. I was finally getting my grips on life, things were even going pretty good. And then BAM. lockdown. And with that my career, everything i had worked for were just - gone. At first i was optimistic, but then it started to go downhill. Few months go by where things started to be okay again... Then my dad gets cancer. We don't have a good relationship and he fucked up a large part of my teenage years (And is responsible for several of my mental health issues) He has pushed away everybody from his life, so there's just me and my sibling to help him and support him. The lockdown, my dads cancer - which forced me to put my social life to a total halt, as covid would kill him. And my non-existing career, being without a job, all that combined made my anxiety come back with full force, to the point where in hindsigt, i should have been hospitalized. The next 6 months i spend using all of my knowledge from my last anxiety battle, to climb back up and start in therapy again. As i came out of the anxiety, the depression came back again.
Today. I feel exhausted. burned out. Everything has been a fight for 5-6 years straight. Trying to just have a somewhat normal life. Feeling somewhat okay. But it feels like every time i get up, something comes in from the side and knocks me down. Now i'm sitting here, feeding my nicotine addiction, crying out of exhaustion. My teeth are fucked from years of not being able to take care of myself, but i can't afford to have it fixed. I've borrowed so much money from my parents and i just don't want to burden them financially anymore. My career is still shit as another lockdown hits. I'm severely underweight, but can't afford enough food to gain weight. I'm looking for jobs but have no luck. My degree is useless in these times. I'm using all of my strength to keep fighting, to keep going and i will. But i'm just so exhausted. I feel ashamed. I feel like a burden to my family, friends, society. I feel like a total loser.
I just want to be happy again. I'm so tired of fighting.
