i used to drink monster energy drinks in high school. forgot about them, but last year saw they had low-calorie versions now. got completely hooked on them last year because i worked at a callcenter and it was like a tiny bit better than getting hooked on cigarretes like everyone there. now i have a better job but cannot stop drinking this shit everyday. i dont know how i got so hooked so fucking quickly!! i used to drink them when i was stressed but now i drink them every other day with bullshit excuses like "well today its my off day from work i should drink a monster as a reward!".
this about the zero/ultra versions though, the regular monster gives me chest pains and i cannot sleep when i drink them. they also have made me throw up multiple times cause they are so heavy on my stomach. but i do drink them when they are out of the zero versions and always regret it. please help me this shit is so expensive its not funny

I hope it ends up being helpful. So this is kind of embarrassing but step #1 was asking nigel
to hide the weed from me, and that's about 60% of it. As for real strategies for when I start fiending, I remind myself that I actually feel fine and clear headed in the moment, and getting high makes me retarded and sad. I also envision a big pile of burning 100 dollar bills.
It's time to quit drinking alcohol. I've been drinking on 54 out of 55 days this year so far, mostly around 6 to 9 pints of beer a day. This behaviour isn't new, I have been drinking nearly daily for the past 5 years, to be able to sleep, to be able to live in this shithole, to feel good for a short amount of time. Because of the drinking I've gained 25 kg, I'm nearly as fat as Shayna now and I hate it. I hate the amount of time and money I waste and what I'm doing to my body and my mental health. Fortunately, I'm not physically addicted to alcohol, only my brain is hooked on it, so there are no dangerous side effects if I quit now. Hardest part of getting and staying sober are the first 3 to 5 days for me, as I'm getting unbelievably depressed the first sober days and I'm already depressed as it is, though I wonder if I drink because I'm depressed or if I'm depressed because I drink. Well, guess it's time to find out if my brain will be happier without the alcohol and what I can achieve being sober for the next few months or maybe even years.
This is what I'm trying to quit, wishing all you other nonnas good luck and endurance reaching your goals ♥
Youre gonna end up binging. You gotta be in a deficit, yes, but make the meals smaller and more frequent. This revs metabolism. 3 meals, 2 snacks.
(A tldr version of the weightloss plan made for me by a nutritionist. Down 65 lbs and counting since june)
I'm going through the EXACT same thing wtf. I was actually late to work today because I was doing that last night… I might start setting alarms for a cutoff time so I remember to stop.>>1507772
I try to do this too but I usually just find myself up at 2am again…
Have you tried replacing dessert with something healthy like apple or yogurt? It should help with the sugar cravings after dinner. Good luck nonny
This is me and sugar free Red Bull. I've always had the occasional can but ever since I started drinking them to keep alert while I was doing the books for a friend's business I can not stop. At one point I was drinking more than five a day. I've cut down to two a day by having one less each week.>>1507769
If you want to do OMAD you need to eat one large meal of mainly fat and protein. Half a kilo of belly pork is about 1300 calories, so in a deficit for most people, yet I can almost say with certainty that after eating all that pork you wouldn't want to eat anything else until the same time the next day. Omelettes are also a cheap option for big OMAD meals. Whisk up 4-6 eggs with some heavy cream and melt some cheese on top before serving.

I really need to stop picking at my face, it's an obsessive habit borne from anxiety and just gross. Making my skin worse, all the things. I have lots of blackheads on my nose and large pores across my cheeks that get clogged easily. If any nonnie has advice, please help. I spend up to an hour at a time picking and squeezing, I look horrible. Any tips for flakey nose skin and a quality blackhead remover for sensitive skin, I'm all ears. The shame I feel is crippling. Thank you.

ayrt let's hope some Stacy dermanonnie is able to save us from ourselves. At least we have each other.
Im also realizing i need to cut back on drinking. This week was particularly bad. I would go out with my sister, have a few drinks together, then get home and keep drinking. Then i would pass out without even taking off my glasses or brushing my teeth and spend all of next day nursing my hangover.
Im generally fine when I do stop for a few days, but I end up feeling so bored or thinking “this show would be funner to watch with a cocktail”
I dont think i want to quit completely and forever, but to how i was before where i only drink when I go out with friends or to dinner
I use salicylic acid. There's a variety of acids you can use, start off with the weakest concentration and use it once every three or four days to see how your skin reacts to it. The acid will break down the buildups in your pores, and they help when my skin is flaky and dry despite having a crapload of moisturizer smeared on every ten seconds. Don't use it every day, moisturize, and only use it at night if at all possible. You might need to experiment with a few acids to find the one that works best for your skin. It takes time to really work, but you should start to notice results in a few uses, like brighter skin and less blackheads forming.
I also use micellar water and a konjac sponge to gently clean my face and rinse with cool water. That helps with flaky skin and clogged pores, but I wouldn't recommend using acids on the same day you do this.
Thank you kind nonnie
, you're the best. I will try this. Warm regards from bagcat-chan.

I’m addicted to Diet Coke/Pepsi and sugary treats. I’m trying to kick these habits because they’re just unhealthy. I’m not sure why I keep eating or drinking these since they just make me feel sick (sugary makes me feel nauseous and my stomach feels upset, and the sodas make me have the jitters because of caffeine intolerance.) I love water and tea and I love natural sweets like fruits as well. Sometimes it’s just easy to grab a soda or a donut even tho it wastes my money. Help
no way kek I thought I was the only person stupid enough to have this problem as a full grown adult. And I was late to work this morning too wtf!! people have been asking me if I'm ill or if something's wrong and it's like well, there certainly is something wrong (with me) but I can't tell you what it is, kek
I was just like this at 15 but it was normal then because I was 15, kek. But actually I think I figured out why I'm so insane right now. At 15 it was because it was my first time being attracted to someone at all, so of course I went nuts. This time, it's my first time being attracted to a woman, so I'm going nuts again in the same way like a teenager. This revelation however does not help me devise a solution. Godspeed to you nonny
I hope you have more luck kicking this than I have>>1507772
is a decent idea but even if I put myself to bed at 8pm I'd wind up staying up till 4 anyway, which is then actually more time being retarded and not less kek

oh holy fuck i just gagged nicotine gum is the worst and im a cigarette smoker nona love yourself and get a spearmint
I've been drinking like you describe it while I was younger, now I don't have friends to go out with, so I drink alone, at home, just basic functional alcoholic shit. It's just no joy anymore and I get nothing done besides the things I have to do, I just feel stuck and I'm tired of it, so it's time for me to quit completely. After all, I have been drinking for so many years now, I guess the next 20 years without alcohol wouldn't be so bad, kek.>>1508524
proud of you, Nonna. I will follow in your footsteps, except not with Liquid Death (we don't have canned water in my country), non alcoholic beer will be my saviour.

I haven't told anyone, but I'm over 3 years free from self harm now. It wasn't easy and sometimes my mind goes back to the idea of it, but I think I will go another 3 years without, just to see what my skin will look like then and if the scars will maybe become less visible. Just wanted to tell someone and I hope every one of you can quit what they want to quit and replace it with something good and healthy.
that's great nonnie
! i'm very happy for you because i know it's hard to stop
i'm trying to quit my phone/internet addiction. i just waste so much time on the internet reading stupid shit including some of the threads on this site
and i just need to do something more stimulating with my free time. i started turning my phone off when i'm home for the day and i'm not expecting any important calls. for some reason i don't endlessly survive the internet on my laptop

Thank you so much.
And no, I didn't replace the self harm with anything. After so many years of doing it, it felt like it was time to move on and that it's okay to stop hurting myself as I suffered long enough. What I can say is, it gets easier the longer you withstand the urge.

I went from being so bored that I wanted to die to feeling like there aren't enough hours in the day to do everything I want since I quit smoking weed. Was emotionally dependant on it for like 15 years, smoking very heavily. I feel so much better now. It was responsible for at least 50% of my crippling anxiety. Withdrawals are no joke though. I downloaded the I am Sober app which sends me a notification to pledge sobriety every morning. That might sound dramatic but those little milestones help keep me motivated.

Perhaps you identify with the following questions:
Do you spend far more time <using the substance> than you originally intended?
Are you unsuccessful in efforts to stop or limit your consumption of <substance>?
Has time spent <using the substance> interfered with, or taken precedence over personal or professional commitments, hobbies, or relationships in your life?
Do you go out of your way to keep your <substance> consumption secret?
Has <using the substance> caused significant problems in intimate relationship(s)?
Do you experience a cycle of pleasure and enjoyment before and during <substance> consumption, followed by feelings of shame, guilt, and remorse after?
Do you spend significant amounts of time thinking about <the substance>, even when not <using> it?
Has <using the substance> caused any other negative consequences in your personal or professional life (e.g. missed work, poor performance, neglected relationships, financial problems)?
If you’re a <substance> user that depends on it … at all and for any reason, all you need to do is read on. If you’re here for a loved one, all you need to do is persuade them to read this book. But if unable to persuade them, read the book yourself. Understanding the method assists getting the message across and preventing your children from starting. Don’t be fooled by the fact that they don’t have access to it now – all do before getting hooked.

Raw honey is healthy. Chocolate is questionable due to its high oxalate content, which strips your bones, specifically your teeth, from calcium. This forms calcium oxalate (kidney stones). Chocolate isn't alone in this. Beans in general are high in oxalates, regardless of whether they are regular beans, cocoa beans, or coffee beans. The same applies to some leafy greens, such as spinach. If you want to be healthier, ditch refined foods, and foods high in oxalates/oxalic acid.
Your best bet is out of sight, out of mind. Stop buying it. Stop whoever you live with from buying it, or at least tell them to keep it out of sight.

I need to stop daydreaming and making up unlikely scenarios in my head that just end up hurting me emotionally, especially when it comes to romantic interests.
I did the same thing. just do it like 10-20 more times and it will eventually stick. gotta keep trying or you'll never quit. cigarettes are sticky like that.
my anxiety dropped off the face of the earth when I quit by the way. it was the nicotine making me anxious apparently.
Great job nonny
!! And yeah, 4 drinks a day is too many drinks a day especially for a woman. Women shouldn’t drink more than 3 alcoholic drinks in one day, and shouldn’t exceed 7 drinks a week total. Having a couple drinks in the weekends is fine, even having one beer or one glass of wine to wind down at the end of the day is fine, but the guidelines are good to stick to.

i just realized it's been 84 days since the last time i smoked weed. 8 months since the last time i did hard drugs. i still need to quit drinking though.
Regular coffee is a bit too heavy for my stomach so I drink just a tiny cup in the morning. I tried drinking black tea throughout the day instead, but ended up feeling sick and even vomited once. It means I overdosed on tannins. Green tea actually makes me sleepy instead of alert.
Yesterday I drank just two small cans of energy drink, and supplemented the rest with 6 sachets of Jacob's Milka instant coffee so that kinda worked? It's not as heavy on the stomach as regular coffee. >>1544439
I actually never tried matcha, I'll try finding it where I live to see if it's better than just regular tea
