Whatever I feel about the A I have a way of dealing with it

Angry: I do something to make the OM unhappy

Sad: I workout

Lost or hopeless: I do something to make my life better.

Numb: Live life as usual.

What do you do to deal with the rollercoaster?:confused:

I had stopped drinking but I am rethinking my position, there is more truth and forgiveness in a bottle of booze than in anyone's eyes.
By the way I prefer this translation of Ovid
“Perfer et obdura, dolor hic tibi proderit olim." (Be patient and tough; someday this pain will be useful to you.)”
― Ovid

Anger: I hit my heavy bag (and remember to put gloves on first)

Sad: I hit my heavy bag (but forget to put gloves on first)

Lost or Hopeless: I write poetry or lyrics

Numb: I drink. It isn't a good coping mechanism, but you asked and I'm honest.

I just like the irony of using his name for these forums. Also the end of his life give a good moral story... The good quotes are a bonus!:D

I can't talk. The first 2 or 3 weeks I went through unknown litres of 80 proof rum.

I got so close to Jack Daniels, I now refer to him as John.

Yeah, I'm not a beer drinker. Never have been. These past 9 months have been expensive. I don't mean to laugh, but I am kind of chuckling about it. I mean, easily a bottle of good Irish Whiskey is $35. And its gone in a couple days. Well, it was that way. Not so much any more. Regret and I are doing a bunch better than we were! I don't drink half of what I used to.

I am getting a heavy bag heard it does wonders, and while drinking is not a crutch you should walk to far with at times it can at least be something to count on to make you feel better no matter how temporary, sex is that way sometimes but has too many landmines attached at least right now.

Above all write it beats screaming, don't worry if nothing rhymes or makes sense it is a way to purge yourself of angry, hateful and destructive thoughts. I have found writing can be a sense of relief and of dismay(when she looks through my notebook) then I have to explain some of those things and their meaning and persude her not to call the looney bin for me.

Bourbon is my weakness, I have also slowed down drinking now I only use one hand.

Can't think of one aspect of the OMs life I haven't attacked. If it weren't for that I'd probably need a journal, or still be drinking.

The workouts are great for keeping depression at bay.

What does this mean?

I like to write on these boards. Even if it only takes me a couple minutes, I need to get it out. SOCO is what i have been partaking in, one liter a week. Though this has slowed down since I am dumping my stbxw.

I bought drums and play when I get angry, they help. Running is good.

Talking is something else I like to do, and listen to my playlist of hate music when I need to get work done.
