    Oh ok gotcha brother. You know I still believe some it's just you can get caught up in it and believe everything is a false flag.

    I honestly started to believe everything was bullshit even people or things I read about like addiction and other things.

    It wasnt until I started to see that its not all bullshit that I started to back away a bit from the conspiracy stuff it was consuming me.

    Likewise brother I devoted many year's to a lot of it,we can't change any of it so why torture ourselves with believing it all?Like you said it consumes...Been there,done that.Its still scary that Congress has basically turned into a resistance on the democrats side,they are falling for everything the internet says.....(Thanks Google and Facecrook) your distorting reality and harming the country with your propaganda and privacy theft

    Yes brother I total agree with that assessment. young liberals just not knowing any better. Everybody wants to be taken care of and not do anything. If all of society thought that way our country would be finished.

    They say if your not a liberal when your 20 you have no heart, but if you are not a conservative by 30 you have no brain. Haha

    I got into the deep web stuff and seriously backed off.
    Thays what started people trying to creep me out.
    But they are lost. However I do not recommend anyone try out the deep web-NOT DARK- deep web is what I was into. Until i saw real stuff I previously thought was Hollywood fiction and found out it was the truth.
    I don't even go to movies hardly anymore.

    Update. My jitters and anxiety-which felt so much like a small case of PAWS it was uncanny, are gone.
    I have a bad habit of falling asleep reading. But I love to read at night.
    Last two nights I haven't gotten enough sleep because I've been up reading.
    However last night I fell asleep with a piece of nicotine gum in my mouth.
    Not a good idea.
    So also last few nights I've been taking the patch off right before bed and slapping a new one on and chewing gum right after a morning shower.
    But at least I can now sleep without a patch. And I'm not sweating really anymore. Couple more weeks and ill see how it goes from 21mgs to 14.
    I'm actually looking forward to it. I hate the money spent on this.

    So I said I would keep everyone updated on my battle with nicotine.

    For the record "battle with nicotine" sounds stupid-rediculous- even to me. Because of all of the other stuff that I have quit and not gone back to. Stuff that made me hallucinate, puke...stuff that I was put on suicide watch for when inpatient (for good reason).
    And then there's nicotine.
    Well, I haven't lied on here thus far-and I won't start now.
    Shortly after two paydays ago which was not long after my last post on this thread I got stressed. Patches are addictive and expensive and I was not having success with the patch protocol.

    About two weeks ago I broke down and bought a can of dip. Grizzly wintergreen pouches to be specific.

    And that is where I stand with my battle with nicotine.
    I will handle it later when I'm not so stressed...I know this is a cop out. But I have to tell the truth here. I'm not using this as a social media platform and I won't pretend to be doing something I'm not.
    So there's my update. Sorry if my failure here disappoints anyone. I will eventually beat it-but not today...
