Sautéed veggies? I don't think they take that much and there are a lot of sauces to condiment them with. My comfort food for when I'm feeling like shit and don't want to cook is rice/noodles with sautéed vegetables (it can be with everything seriously, peppers, onions, garlic, eggplant, zucchini, etc) + soy sauce + ground ginger + salt. Very basic but tasty and simple imo
Do you like salads and fresh vegetables? I love fresh tomatoes with olive oil, little bit of salt and oregano. You can add cheese or garlic as well

No. 204542

I know it’s not quite as healthy as eating plain veggies, but I usually roast them in the oven with a bit of olive oil (and various seasonings). You can obviously only use a small amount of oil if you’re watching calories. Toss some broccoli on a sheet pan with olive oil, garlic, salt/pepper, a little lemon juice, roast for 25 mins or so, and you’ve got a very easy/delicious side dish. Add a bit of parm cheese and it’s even better. Green beans I usually roast with only olive oil and crushed rosemary. I also love roasted spaghetti squash with saucey main dishes, it’s kind of a plain flavor by itself but it goes great with BBQ sauce. Any kind of roasted vegetable dish is pretty easy because you just toss with oil/seasonings and let it cook. Brussel sprouts are also delicious pan-fried or roasted with garlic and a splash of balsamic vinegar. It depends on your tastes of course, but I love veggies with a fuckton of garlic.

Soup and chili with lots of veggies are great for fall and winter! It takes about an hour total to make this minestrone soup recipe, but you'll have leftovers if you're just cooking for yourself so you can heat and eat it for a few more meals.

I put turmeric in practically any veggie dish I make, it makes it taste 10x better to me.

I couldn't find a recent thread similar enough on here so I wanted to start one myself.

Do any of you struggle with addiction to drugs/alcohol etc? Do you have advice for those who do?

Personally I don't think i have an 'addiction' but a habit which could turn into one. I struggle to go to sleep at night by myself without a few bottles of wine or weed. For the last couple of months I've been going out drinking/smoking every other day. I also picked up smoking because of the people around me even though I don't necessarily like it. I'm still a teenager and I have alcoholics and ex drug addicts in my family so this worries me. I've tried other drugs like Coke and Molly very briefly so I know it isn't very extreme case. Advice/thoughts are appreciated

I'm still recovering from a porn addiction I've had for on and off 4 years I think. It's fucked with my view on sex and confused my sexuality a lot, I wish I knew what I was getting into when I started. I don't understand how watching porn is seen as normal.

I have a drinking problem and I’m a bit of a cokehead. Granted, I can function fine for the most part but I still struggle with addiction. I do coke like every two weeks which is still a lot. I’m definitely not as into it as I used to be but I wish I had better control.

No. 204524

I feel like I've got my alcohol issue better under control but I got looped back into smoking cigarettes again after being off them for about 3 years. I vaped and worked myself down from 6mgs nic to 0.5mgs nic but now I'm that smoking cigarettes again the vape just isn't doing much for me. I really only smoke on Saturday's though which is my designated drinking day.

I wrote out a gay little contract stipulating that if I purchase another pack before the year is over I have to dump all my hoarded liquor and unsubscribe from world of fucking warcraft. i have my friends supporting me and keeping me honestly about it which cigarette check ins so I cant be like "OH i TOTALLY didn't buy a new pack this is still the last one from September!" which i know is shome shit i might pull. wish me luck.

It's now been a whole year since I last smoked weed and yet I've been getting cravings so intense that I've cried. All my friends talk about how high they're getting and I feel so angry and jealous because I know if I start again it'll take over my life like it did last time. I wish weed wasn't so normalised.

No. 204681

same here. It doesn‘t relieve stress and the need to smoke stresses more than the ‚good‘ effect from it, i.e. the short nicotine buzz. We just get tricked by our own brains because it’s so addictive and increases the concentration capacity for the blink of a second, hence why so many people are addicted to smoking at work.
Not to mention that your concentration ability is way better off without your brain being under constant additional stress from addiction.
I used to smoke a shitload like that too for many years. What is really important imo is to radically stop smoking in the morning or whenever you get up. The later you enter ‚smoker mode‘, the less you will smoke over the day. In my experience, after the first cigarette the urge to smoke more in regular intervals is much stronger, so delay that as much as you can. Not starting your day with smoking was the biggest step for me, and it will get easier over time to the point where you feel disgusted at the idea of smoking early and it becomea an evening thing. For me it was a slow road, nowadays I only smoke when I‘m drunk because otherwise it gives me a headache.

Ravelry is a really good source. Other than that, you want double pointed and circular needles. I learned how to make a hat on circulars but eventually moved onto double points because it made the finishing of it easier. Hats are really easy and fast. Mittens are pretty easy too but they come with a thumbhole which is quite easy as well.

I go through phases on knitting, at the moment I'm doing socks in West Yorkshire Spinners Fairylights (it's a seasonal yarn, I ordered it off ebay) and they're going to be so cute!

I usually work with thicker yarn and needles since I'm from Finland and that's what I was taught to do but I'm trying to get more ambitious and try working with different weight yarn and smaller needles.

>what gemstones do you find yourself gravitating towards, if any?
Dark blue sapphire.
>what motifs/themes do you tend to like?
I like geometric designs usually. I find overly literal representations of things (like flowers) to be corny.
>what metals do you prefer? Do you care about undertones when selecting metals?
Ideally platinum but it's pricy so I often go for sterling silver. Yellow gold is also pretty though I only wear it with certain outfits. My undertone is neutral/muted so all metals look pretty good.
>what cuts do you usually prefer?
Emerald, baguette, asscher, radiant.

Let's talk making new friends. I'm ashamed to say I have no good friends. We all moved away or drifted apart. Pre-covid I might have tried joining new activities, but now it's almost impossible to make new friends irl.

What can I try? Discord never worked for me, and Bumble Friends was a waste. I really want strong female friendships even if online, and feel kinda embarrassed I have no one.

Sorry if this is newfagging, but to second what >>202869 is saying, everyone here keeps mentioning woman-only Discord servers, but no one's saying where to look for them or how to find them. Is there a lolcow Discord somewhere?

No. 203556

I found the first one I joined through Ovarit. They required voice confirmation and a full interview process. Ended up joining other women's servers from members advertising in the original one (for more niche interests). Sorry, like everyone else I don't want to get doxxed or bring scrotes to women's spaces but if you do minimal searching you should be able to find some options.

I think there was a lc Discord at some point but it immediately devolved into a bunch of underage trolling and idiocy.

No. 203568

That honestly sounds perfect. I don't like going out too much either, the occasional stroll around town just chatting is perfect though. Watching a movie or reading together is also really nice.

I also just have convenience friendships, but for me it's also hard because I work from home and didn't go to university.

I'm considering picking a new place in my city every week and going there - like a museum or book store. I also like fitness so I can sign up to a club maybe.

What country are you in?

I've wanted to add more piercings to my ears for a long time but can never decide which type. I think it can look very pretty when done right but I'm wary of looking trashy and overdone. Perhaps just a second lobe piercing and a helix. Post about earrings and piercings here I guess!

Mine stay open for way longer than they're meant to, except when it comes to helix piercings. Though helix piercings have always given me trouble, painful bumps, hard to sleep on, then close up in no time if I try to take jewelery out to relive pressure on them. I just can't keep a helix but I know pretty pretty common.

Could you go back to your piercer and ask them to do it? The only thing is they might not put the new jewellery in unless it's the grade they usually use, in case it gives you irritation or something.

I have a really bad, mostly secret shopping addiction. I buy almost entirely designer clothing (I'm really stingy when it comes to eating out or vacations), and I spend a categorically retarded amount of money on it. I've successfully put off doing the math for a couple of years, but I finally got the courage yesterday and it's in the six figures…

Even thinking about that makes me feel weak and sweaty. I'm so fucking stupid, I could have paid for a house with that money. For someone reason I get fixated on one brand or one collection at a time, and I get autistic about getting individual pieces that I obsess over. I don't have any debt or family obligations (have been estranged since high school), and I make enough to cover my spending and not that much more.

I've tried to quit before, but it's never lasted for more than a week or so. It's hard when I'm like a magpie and need to have any shiny object that catches my attention, and films/television are filled with people wearing picturesque clothing. My bf knows about my problem, but no one else does and I'd be mortified if anyone found out I was this retarded. Idk what to do and am open to any advice.

No. 203251

I'm getting more and more depressed for some reason and I want to spend money to treat myself to whatever but I also promised myself I would stop buying things I won't use so I'm spending too much money on food delivery. Sometimes I think about the amount of money on things I bought when I started getting my own money and wasn't poor anymore and I get embarrassed and frustrated, I spent money on makeup I didn't even use or that weren't even my shade, the few things I used just disappeared from my room and I have no idea where I can find them anymore, I have such a hard time finding clothes my size that when I found some clothes that fit me I used to buy them and not wear them because they were either too basic or too ugly anyway, and there are so many books and video games I sold after not liking them that I got like 200 or 300€ back from that even though I sold them for very cheap last year. I'd say even if I'm doing better with spending money responsibly now it's not going to last very long.

No. 203274

I am doing a shopping free month, aiming for a year. I want to focus on hobbies instead of overspending on fashion. So far i have made it through a week. It kind of gives me a kick to not shop now, to look at my bank account and see that the money is still there.
