2022.01.22 14:04 1bighypocrite How I knew I needed to get serious; or, "surely I don't have a drinking problem, do I?"

I thought I'd share some of how I got from "hmm, do I have a drinking problem?" to getting really serious about doing whatever it takes to stop.
Like a lot of people, it all started with rationalizations about how I'm fine, and how drinking is reasonable. Weird behaviors hit, like constantly having to go to the store to get just one more thing for dinner, and having a sip of pickle juice as soon as I got home to cover the smell (because breath mints would have been too obvious). Drinking became really frequent, and over time it became harder and harder to come up with the answer to the daily question I'd ask myself, "Damn, how many did I have last night?" because the numbers were just so high.
Even as my behaviors became more and more strange, I always said it was fine. Eventually it dawned on me that all those little rationalizations are bullshit. That drinking voice is so very creative about rationalizations, and it knows all the buttons to push. In the non-drinking times earlier in the day I would reassure myself, saying there was no problem. Eventually I was able to take a look at my behaviors and say, "Yeah, that's not a very normal thing to do, is it?" or "Hmmm, I guess I wouldn't say 6 nights a week is totally what people do." I challenged myself to come up with a definition of problem drinker that somehow excluded myself; the definition got more ridiculous over time and eventually I realized that, yeah, no such honest definition exists. I've got a problem.
Being someone who really wants to drink (or who has that whiny little voice that won't shut up), I of course tried to bargain. Like, OK fine, I'm going to get real serious about this, it's just the weekend days. Or, I'll never go over some number of drinks. I really honestly believed those things in all sincerity. I meant them, and I thought I could live with them. Over time, I looked at the hundreds of examples of failure to reach that holy grail of moderation, and I was shocked to find that I couldn't think of a single example where I kept to it. I faced the very difficult realization that I was no longer in control, and that moderation just isn't an option, no matter how dearly I want it to be.
Eventually an even more uncomfortable realization hit. I looked back at various concrete points in my history and realized that drinking always got worse. Whether I looked back a few months, or a year, or multiple years ago, I always thought, Wow, I was nowhere near this bad back then. Drinking is always progressive. However uncomfortable I might be with my situation right now… it's not going to improve. It's not even going to stay the same. I might be plenty functional for right now, but it's got nowhere good to go. When someone goes through that slow slide to the point where they've lost everything, it's not as if they didn't say "wow I've really got to cut back" a million times along the way, just like I was saying to myself.
And so I was faced with three very difficult conclusions, which I couldn't possibly argue against, no matter how much I wanted to, and no matter how much I've tried: I've got a problem. Moderation isn't an option. And it's going to get worse, much worse. Where does that leave me? Well, I can just throw up my hands and accept ruin, or I can quit. The right choice may be obvious, but it's not going to be easy, and "oh OK I'll just stop" isn't going to work any better than the moderation attempts. No, I have to be intensely serious about sobriety. Anything less is choosing that path of ruin.
Relatedly, there are a few questions I wished someone asked me a few years ago:

As for precisely what to actually do about all that… well, that's a topic for another post.
I hope this is helpful to someone.

I can't stand blacks. They are a bunch of nasty, scamming, mfs. Always trying to get over. I honestly made this throwaway because my other account got way to much karma and upvotes. So much so no one would believe me if I told them. I use it for policing Reddit especially the black 🦍. No one will be getting over or asking for any type of assistance on here.

2022.01.22 14:04 Shin-yolo Y'all, I'm the stereotypical transmale and I feel like people will think I'm mocking the trans community...

My choice in name is Oliver, I like wearing cute clothes and I don't think I want to go on T (Will still transition but only to the point people will call me he/him without me telling them to), and I love frogs and cats. I act in a way that makes my whole family say I probably have high functioning autism, and I just feel worried that people will think that I am trying to get attention or something. I am trans, I am 100% trans, and that is something I'm sure about. But I just feel like people will think that I'm faking it.

2022.01.22 14:04 Master-Influence-687 good distro with no top black bar

I need a good, well-maintained, easy to use, no top bar distro which uses apt package manager.
I used ubuntu, but the window borders are too big. And there is freaking top black bar.
The main issue is there are two bars. One side bar, and top bar. The top is almost useless and only used time and notifications. Making inefficient use of screen real estate. If you like the bar, atleast put that menu like MacOS does it(I don't know what it's called. please tell me what it is) when an app opens. Instead its so useless.
TO be honest, I actually want it to be just window bar. All of the info is in the bottom which is how I like.
Linux mint does this, which is exactly how I wanted. I really liked the UI of Linux mint but it is buggy to be used as daily OS. I want Linux mint like OS which is up to date software. Like instead of Xorg, it should've Wayland and pipewire instead of pulseaudio.
I'm ok with paying distro if they offer good support. So, you can also recommend paid distros.
