I'd perfer not to say what i feel like I'm addicted to. But i have to do it every night. Idk if it's outta boredom or what. I get antsy if something keeps me away from it.

It's only a nightly thing.. but occasionally, I'll do it when ds is at school. There's nothing like support groups for this. I don't have insurance.

What are some methods that helped you? I promised ds I wouldn't for a few days. The same night, I broke that promise... last night, I promised myself I'll put everything away and see how long i can do without it.... I'm getting everything ready now.

I need help!


Eta. I smoke hookah. One session lasts 1-3 hrs.

Just take it one day at a time... one hr at a time... one min at a time.

My brother was bad on cocaine. Only way he got over the addiction was in patient rehab. He tried outpatient but that wouldn't work. You have to stay away from the people who do it, lose the numbers, change your number.

My response depends on whether it's ice cream or heroin....

There are different ways to cope with different addictions...since we don't know what you are addicted to you won't get much help.

Lol no! Dear god, if ds knew I masturbated and asked me to stop, I'd be mortified!

I smoke. Not cigarettes or weed though, nothing illegal either

Is it something that might be better tapered down, rather than cold turkey?

Hit enter too fast.

Be honest. Which means saying why you're addicted to. Don't avoid it. From there a plan can be better built.
