Always addicted to something

I have always had to have something to be addicted to. Now middle aged looking back it started with food, then nicotine, alcohol, huffing, weed, fitness, alcohol, nicotine, opioids, and amphetamines. Why cant I just live without an addiction? Something is in the way and I cant pin point it. Even if I could, would it change anything? I dont know what else to say. I'm just tired of everything which is really nothing new.

Just wondering if this is bad.

I started drinking every night when I was 20 in 2012.
I drank 4 or 5 or 6 drinks every night, still functioned just fine.
At some point around 2014, I started drinking up to 10 shots of tequila every night and was still okay.
Around 2015 I'd occasionally wake up in the middle of the night on days off and drink an additional 6 shots or so, enjoy my drunkenness, do chores and such, ...

Non addictive personality and cocaine use

Cocaine addiction is classified more as a psychological addiction rather than a physical addiction. I know that logical addiction is much harder for one to control compared to a physical addiction.

I have a friend that claims to have a non addictive type personality, shows all the traits associated with that and has even been told bye a psychologist that my friend does indeed show all the characteristics of having a non addictive personality.

My ...

Addicted to alcohol?

Apparently my team think I'm dependant on alcohol bc it makes me feel better. I drink maybe twice a week but was refused help before bc of it. They said I didn't have enough routine. Anyway, alcohol actually cheers me up son I don't drink that much so I don't think it's an addiction x

Rehab is Crap

Over the years, I have taken sooo many of my friends to rehab.
After a while, I started noting a pattern...

I would bring S. in because he was hooked on pills. They would get them off them by putting him on other pills. They would send him home.
18 months later I would be back with him because he was hooked on THOSE pills.
Rinse, repeat...

If I ran the joint, people would go ...

During those times I met someone that introduced me to this product called CBD. It helped me a lot during the hard times but now I'd like to stop using it. **Supplier link ...

Acid may have me hooked

Little back story I have aspd so human connection has been a truly scarce commodity in my brain. I did three hits of acid and my whole world changed. I actually felt connected. I am married and it was the most emotional I have ever been with my wife in the 10 years we been together. Never have I ever felt that kind of feeling before its hard to even put a word on it.
