Stop entering the country illegally and this won't happen yo your family. If you are claiming asylum and enter Mexico first you cannot legally claim asylum in the US. That is the facts.

You're like the guy who beats his wife and blames her for it.

Build The Wall, no more pseudo-drama from the Globos.

edit: This justifies The WALL

Feeling outrage from Trump weaponizing child abuse to gain political leverage is not "pseudo-drama." It is what a normal human with an ounce of compassion would feel.
If you are not outraged, you are a sociopath.

I like Avenatti's Tweet

It does not matter who started the family separation policy. Even if it was @BarackObama (it wasn't), Trump has consistently bragged about his ability to end Obama's policies. But now he claims he can't end this one?!?! This is now Trump's draconian policy and it should end now.

Fake hysteria is the only thing democrats have now... kind of sad

You support weaponized child abuse...kind of sadder.

I support punishing criminals

These are innocent children, not criminals. It is reprehensible that you think federally funded child abuse is OK.

You have taken a HUGE first step in the right direction! Recognizing there's a problem is tough. You can go to AA's website and find a meeting in your area that suits your needs. There are different types of meetings such as "free-thinkers" (atheist/agnostic based), men's meetings, women's meetings, LGBT meetings, young people's meetings, etc. Try out a few different ones in your area before you establish a "home meeting." Here's a detailed explanation of how a typical 12-step program unfolds. I was nervous as hell for my first meeting. As soon as I walked in, it melted away. I was surrounded by friendly faces of people who were in the same boat and knew the struggle I was facing. I wasn't alone. It felt amazing. Good luck! You are doing the best thing for you AND your marriage. You won't regret it.

It's very naive to think that a multi-billion dollar political machine isn't going to try and control the narrative by putting words in peoples' mouths when the spotlight is on them. Sadly happens all the time. Why wouldn't they? What consequences could there possibly be to helping someone with a speech on CNN?

Nice bait though. I see you're very practiced at angrily stumbling your way through political discussions.

Still no source.
Nobody is telling these Spanish-speaking children what to say. The proof is the concentration camps they are setting up after they tear them away from their parents. This action is inherently wrong on all levels. It is inhumane. You are a monster if you try to defend it. Period.

Oh my gosh. Y'all are dramatic. I at no point defended taking kids from their parents. I was simply pointing out that the tweet never said anyone was a crisis actor, just that the kids were being coached, which is just a sad by-product of manufactured narrative-driven news these days.

Your propagating a lie by saying "dems coach them." You should be more careful about what you are defending. This is a dire situation that's unfolding. We aren't being "dramatic." Everyone with any sense of what is right and wrong should be upset by this. It is fascism blooming under our noses. Weaponized child abuse to be used as political leverage is evil.
Don't you agree?

It depends a lot on genetics. Some people can drink inhuman amounts of hard liquor for decades and be fine, others can have liver failure in their late 20s. It would probably be a good idea to go to the doctor and check your liver function if you are worried about it.
I had to follow the "dry people, dry places" rule for the first few months of sobriety. I had to make quite a few changes to my social life and certainly lost some drinking buddies in the process. My true friends are still around and support my efforts to remain alcohol-free. Early sobriety is really hard and takes a lot of effort. I can promise you that if you stick with it, living an alcohol-free life will eventually feel perfectly normal. I am now amazed at how much time and money I spent dedicated to the consumption of that shitty drug. I literally squandered decades of my life and tens of thousands of dollars...

Fascists fear critical thinking.

parrotpeople [score hidden]

You don't think critically. You just reinforce the dominant narratives. How do your social views differ from those of, say, Google? Isn't it strange that all your social views perfectly coincide with giant corporations?

They could drop you in an hr department and you'd be right at home

Beers for breakfast to get rid of withdrawals. Room temp airplane bottles of Jager during the day. Chugged small boxes of wine at night. Jameson, beer.
It was misery. I felt horrible all of the time. My GI tract was a disaster. I could barely go out in public without running for the bathroom. My hands would shake. I was having panic attacks. I was depressed. It was horrible.
My life is 1000% better across the board. I can’t believe I spent so many years living that way. It was hell.

Your Asheville neighbor here! Yes it definitely gets easier with time. The cravings will only last a few weeks...eating something sweet always crushed those for me. Of course that's kind of trading one addiction for another, so be careful. The URGES will go on for much longer. An urge is much more situational. You'll be tempted to drink at certain events and activities for much longer than cravings last. I lost my urges after the first year or so. Birthdays, holidays, vacation, concerts, funerals, etc...are all challenges that you will face down the road. Be sure to have a toolbox of coping strategies lined up for those occasions.
Moderation is a mirage for 99% of us here. It doesn't work and it is torture. Besides, what's the point? We drink to get drunk. Zero drinks is so much easier. Admitting to myself that I was "alcoholic" helped me take my pledge to quit more seriously. Honestly, saying it out loud for the first time was incredibly liberating for me. Some people like using that label, others don't. In the end, it's your choice.
I would certainly recommend reading This Naked Mind by Annie Grace and Alcohol Explained by William Porter. Both books will change your perspective on alcohol and help you see it for the addictive poison that it is. Get your self a badge and start counting the days...welcome to the club! IWNDWYT.

That's what I allowed myself to do is eat cookies and chips which I don't do much anymore !

OMG...I ate so many cookies the first year! Thin Oreos. Packs and packs of thin Oreos. I had to stop because I started gaining all my drinking weight back.

Where does this reset to Day 1 in the brain thing come from....source? it doesn't seem likely neurotransmitters do not just wash away 229 days of something over one night. That's like saying 1 sober night will wash away 229 nights of drinking. if it works one way wouldn't it work the other way?

Papi_Queso 1 point

Have you ever wondered why it's so hard to quit drinking, but easy to start again? The Kindling Effect is when your brain quickly returns to the addicted state after a relapse in which the withdrawal effect return just as bad or worse than they were before. Your brain is very good at "remembering" and returning to the addicted state before you quit drinking where it produces stimulant neurotransmitters in order counteract the depressant effects of the alcohol. And yes it can happen with just one relapse...and no it doesn't mean that because it's one way then it must be the other.
It takes much longer to replenish those neurotransmitters after years of drinking...otherwise no one would have a problem with addiction or quitting in the first place. It's a very long process to recover and a very quick process to return to your drinking habits if you relapse.
