Yep, I feel shit too. No solutions, been living with this since a kid. Keep existing cos the other option would devastate my wife - can't bear to do that.
You're very blessed to have a wife. I admire you for standing by her so firmly.

I don't use rec drugs anymore, haven't in over a year. I haven't even had cig since the the month before last, just a nicotine vape and a single drink.
I apologise I read it wrong :hug: Im glad you dont.
Hobbies/ interests will help. If I didnt have mine Id not be as doing as well as I am. Ever thought of a sport o rbeing outdoors? It might be something you never imagined.

Its a shame about the shooting being something you like and can't do. Personally, I hate guns but I know that used recreationally people get a lot from it. I started going to the gym 3 time a week to help me and it wasn't a magic cure, but it did help me a bit. Initially, it was all very anonymous and no-one said anything, but in the cafe afterwards, I did manage to get chatting to some of the others in there and it was good. I know, I know eating at the cafe was wasting all the good I did with the gym!

Here in Britain, we have ramblers association (you might be too young to appreciate them) but they are groups of people who go for fairly long walks in the countryside with each other. Its a thought for you as you could meet others easily that way. Just food for thought not trying to make you feel worse if its not for you.

I know, people trying to make you feel "better" can be a downer at times. I hope you take this in the spirit in which its intended. I sympathise with how you feel, truly I do.

I understand where you are coming from. Isolation is for sure not my friend, I do need to break my pattern. I just pissed away another weekend doing nothing but a bit of cleaning. I only left the house once to get food and vape stuff.

If I can acquire friends, a game console, a pistol, a reliable car, and my own place I would have everything I needed. And maybe a girl, God help me. I've got the car so I guess that's a start.

I think friends should be top of your list and then how you do that follows on. The girlfriend is liable to happen if you first have the friends. I wish you well with your search for methods to do this.

I can spend a weekend away from other people and doing nothing - not even cleaning! Its a bad habit of mine and I have to force myself to talk to others at times. But I get there in the end.
