I feel like such a failure. I have done it yet again. I knew I would. I'm not blaming anyone here for not helping, or anyone but myself. It really seems I have more worse days than better. Stress of the job, stress of not really being able to do anything on my own, stress build up from a million things. When will this all end? Where will it end? I don't want to destroy myself and then be left a wobbling pile of jello. A 5'10 construction of gelatinous cube.

This isn't working. Thank you all for your kind words... but I don't know if I can keep this up much longer. I have failed, and I don't know what else to do. Sure people would say I just started, but I really haven't this is the tail end of a 10 year battle with the cause... the punishment is a later addition, but the underlying cause has haunted me like a demon of unfathomable origins for 10 or more years.

Another failed victim of an addiction.


No. You are not a failure!    
"Don't you dare give up. We are in this together and we will all make it. Giving in doesn't make you a failure. Remember: Success is getting up one more time than you fell down. As long as you get back up, you are a success. The only way to fail is to stay on the ground. So get back up please. Brush it off. And try again. Email me and I'll give you my number so we can check up on each other. I hope that having another person fighting with you will help."

Failure is not trying    
"and you are trying. You've been posting on here, and I would assume reading on here, which does help.

You only fail if you give up. I understand how it feels when you slip up, and you really didn't want to slip up. You wonder, what's the point, I'll just do it again and again. I'm never going to be done with this. This takes time to be rid of this, but I feel you can be. I've not personally gotten there yet, but I hope to. Someone said that it can take as long to be done as you've had the problem. That isn't really encouraging, but it's a starting point. There isn't an instant fix, or solution to this, though I wish there was.

My offer is the same as IAMSTRONG. You can email me at
I will try to help to the best of my ability. I'm a good listener if nothing else.
And thank you. I appreciate your response to my post."

"I am new to this. I will help you if you help me. I will need help. Just dont give up. Its just a set back. We can do this together"
