Would it be going too far for me to make a joke about hanging myself being another way for me to steal black culture?

My peers, lately, have found companionship through means of intoxication - it makes them sociable. I, however, cannot force myself to use drugs to cheat on my loneliness - it is all that I have - and when the drugs and alcohol dissipate, will be all that my peers have as well.

really I made the brief mistake of thinking there could be any joy in this life and now I'm paying for it doubly

You have to do a full month, the joys of sober living don't hit until you go all 4 weeks.

Man- I just found joy in the crashing waves of the sea.

I know I ain’t you but I think it’s pretty fair to say that if I can still find occasional bursts of joy goddamn nearly anyone can. You’re a special unique snowflake but you’re not that unique. Joy will return to you. In fact, you were joyous at the dots show just recently

Not **** talking you either. Just saying things pass. Even melancholy and sorrow and the desertification of the mind.

Congratulations -

It takes time until the pain and fog clears and the sunshine of sobriety lets the happy seeds grow but they will. **** is going to be alright dude. Then it’ll be wrong again and the ride spirals down I’m not gonna lie but you, my friend, have a lot of good runs left- I’m sure of it.

Maybe for early stage alcoholism.
I set 100 days as my first major goal and even made a bit of a big deal about it when it arrived. Day 101 was terrible. Worse I'd had in a while.
