Alcoholics thrive in denial...meaning they can't accept that they live in habitual patterns...can't admit that they are out of control...and can't…"
This group is for anyone interested in the sport of wrestling, whether you wrestled in school or are just a fan and want to learn. People say it's a dying sport but the popularity of MMA has really brought home the importance of wrestling as a skillset that every man needs, especially anyone interested in martial arts in general. Hopefully this can facilitate discussion and people looking for training partners in their areaSee More
Thank you for all of the advice and shared experience. I realize now that I still have a completely stable mom that is supportive of my situation. I have some thinking to do about the relationship with my father. He contacted me a couple…"
"Willie, in your entire post, nowhere did you mention where your mother is in all of this. Is she a mature, responsible adult? Are there other adults in your life who seem to be wise and stable, whose advice would be valuable? …"
"Here's what I have to say:
1. I have a great deal of experience with a father who is an alcoholic.
2. I myself went through an addiction experience.
3. I have a great deal of experience with divorced parents.

"It doesn't sound like it's imminent -- that is, I don't hear from your post that he's trying to connect. So it's not crucial to decide immediately. If not... maybe when you feel more balanced about it."
Im a a young man, at 17 years old theres still so much more to learn. My parents have been divorced for most of my life so I am used to that aspect of my life. Im aware that pretty much every guy has some conflicts with their dad, I mean with al those hormones in your body at this age its hard not to question the alpha of the family. My dad is a drunk and a mean one. He is kind of a hard ass. Ive put up with his shit for 14 years and on july 30th 2012 he was hammered, stumbling over drunk.…See More
"Even when everyone 'knew' there was a 'G' spot no one could pinpoint where it is, exactly, for all women. It's kind of funny that they'd think it was in the same place on all women when every woman was…"
"1. I agree. However, for something like this to happen would basically require the "easier" states to add additional requirements to their conceal carry programs, which many will not like.

I'm genuinely curious to see what those of you who favor stricter gun control laws would want to be enacted. Except for a few liberal states, gun control has generally become a political liability. Additionally, as gun laws in most states have relaxed over the last few decades, the blood in the streets scenarios gun control advocates predicted haven't come to pass--the violent crime rate keeps going down. Recognizing that the political environment is not going to allow sweeping gun control…See More
"I wear Scottevest apparel, typically a vest, as my purse. Lots of pockets to keep things organized. I can comfortably carry my ipad, phone, multiple sets of keys and more. The lighter weight vests layer well under a coat for…"
"I have started going shirtless after my workout shower as part of the cool down process. It helps cool the body and reduce perspiration faster when I am shirtless. Sometimes I find myself still shirtless hours later."
"I don't think cowardice has any place in the discussion. When heading down a wrong path the first to turn around in defiance of the majority and head back just may be the most radical leader. No cowardice there, but courage to face up to the…"
