@Typo-MAGAshiv Almost 12 years ago I had a drinking problem.
I knew the consequences. My body was getting weaker and weaker. I was losing my mind. I kept drinking.
I always drank the strongest liquor I could get a hold of. I could have drank something light. I could have reduced the frequency of drinking. I kept drinking.
My friends and family would call me a drunk bum. They would openly insult me. I never said "stop alcoholic-shaming me!". I never said "just because you can't get booze you insult me, you are an involuntary teetotaler!". I kept drinking.
I knew what I was getting. I knew what came with the territory. I accepted it. And kept drinking.
I never once exclaimed "where is all the good booze!?". I could have had a glass of OJ instead. That choice was always there. But I chose to drink.
I never argued with the booze itself, yelling "why can't you be nice to me? why do you make me feel so bad after?!!". Neither did I tell others that there was freedom in drinking, because I knew I was enslaved to drinking. I kept drinking. I kept drinking.
It was always my choice. And I took everything that came with it.

@thesun Yo! you should check out the Cyropeadia by Xenophon, it has nothing to do with pick up or the manosphere but it is a great read for anyone man who is interested in manhood and masculinity. It's a fictional bio about a boy who becomes the King of Persia, though it is fictional it has information you can apply to the "real world" (i.e in one conversation Cyrus is told what it means to be a true man or warrior, how endurance and toil are the ultimate form of education)
