Nerve wracking but I lost my camera at the weekend. Or had it stolen. I was far too drunk to remember the night much. I’m quitting drinking and turning sober from now on. All I get is earache of friends and family about my drinking even if my intention is to have one or two, they all tell me it makes me weird, they all complain about my behaviour even though I think it does that to everyone. I enjoy the social feeling it produces. Others don’t like it when I socialise when drunk. I don’t like to socialise when I’m not drunk and need to learn how to again. I’m not an alcoholic even though friends and family treat me like one. Going out sober is supposed to be easier for picking up girls apparently. Besides the terrible nerves and social anxiety I experience I doubt it will do anything but make me feel more self-conscious and stifled. The irony is that when I get drunk I say and do stupid things that I wouldn’t do if I was sober. This is my New Years Resolution. To resolve my drinking problem. It doesn’t seem a problem to me, it’s just a problem for others. Being the people pleaser that I am and expecting to improve my life I’m committed (for the moment) to be sober, be sober on nights out, and sober in social situations. Everyone else gets drunk and acts weird but they complain when I do it. This is problematic so I’d be silly for it to continue happening.
Advantages of being sober include but are not limited to having a sound mind (questionable), better judgment, better memory function, better social calibration, increased alertness, better decision making ability, access to intuition, experience and conscience. Tyler (Owen) Durden From RSD prides himself on never drinking in field, I’m not even sure if he never drinks at all. The other day I saw a meme that poked fun at healthy eaters who drink because alcohol is a carcinogen. Drinking alcohol in large quantities is advised against in health circles. Drinking responsibly moderately is advised in the UK. I met an alcoholic some time ago who said he had Alzheimer’s. My first assumption was that it was drinking related. Drinking is a huge part of western culture when it comes to socialising. Night clubs and pubs/bars are all places that serve alcoholic beverages and have huge popularity in the West. Many young adults contribute to the huge number of customers of alcoholic drinks and nightlife culture here in the west. Being a drunk is even admirable in western comedy culture. Many men pride themselves on drinking large quantities and being able to stay sober through large quantities of alcohol like they’re waving their cock around. There is a lot of pressure placed around having drinks during leisure time in the West. I’ve never felt so left out than when my friends were all drunk having a good time and I wasn’t. Drinking is seen as glamorous in the West.
Women are attracted to high value guys. What is high value? According to Mystery Method they are Health indicators, Wealth indicators and Relationship indicators. What is your social proof? What are the types of people you spend time with all about? Do you make enough money to live a healthy life? Do you have enough exercise to stay fit and healthy? These kinds of things are what women screen guys on. Believe it or not, there is a wealth of information based in the SMP value indicators and how they are used by women to select romantic interests. The possibility of maintaining SMP indicators takes a shift in thinking to focus solely on one area of expertise and to maintain the others. Women are always waiting for a cool guy to show up in their life. Red Pill theory determines tgat by the time a man is between 36-38 he is in his prime because of the SMP indicators I just mentioned are usually at a good poi t realistically. Getting drunk, self-medicating in all kinds of forms; overeating, overdrinking, smoking, excessive television watching, excessive exercise, anything that means you are neglecting other important parts of your life areas is considered self-medication, is always low value. This is one of the tenets of Red Pill thinking because it determines that a man should be responsible, valuable and disciplined. Self-improvement outcomes include higher self-esteem, confidence and competence, well-being, overall life satisfaction and productivity (at a glimpse). It serves then to simply do everything you can to self-improve. And if you’ve been self-medicating in some ways, see if you can manage them through setting yourself some New Years Resolutions, some goals for the year ahead.
