what do you mean ?

i have to imagine anything in your brain that is driving these pleasure seeking behaviours would also be satisfied by generic diet soda and caffeine pills is my point while being astonishingly cheaper. and if you switch to fizzy water instead not even too bad for you

hmm the thing is I'm not sure, I think it's specifically red bull at this point. almost every other energy drink I can't stand because I've had them too much, and I'm not even sure the caffeine does anything. I don't drink any caffeine on the weekend.

I really think it's a series of conflated habits to do with my workplace, the paths I drive to work, stopping at the supermarket on the way, the dopamine rewards from buying something etc



its why you don't just stop cigarette smoking with nicotine patches, there's an entire world of associated behaviors the reward pathway has a grip on, and if you've spent years developing networks of rewards and reward seeking behavior, that behavior ends up driven by the same part of your brain that drove our ancestors to enjoy red meat and sex


unfortunately for me, I've spent years refining these habits. I honestly doubt I will be able to break them without changing workplaces

yes it's instead why you slowly taper down your nicotine addiction by using an e-cigarette and tamping down on the percentages before finding something else to do with your oral fixation once you're down to 0% nicotine (or just vape for flavour i don't care)

this is why i was suggesting finding replacements that let you recreate all the other parts of your habit so that you can modify them one bit at a time

Caffeine addiction is fully broken. I'm still enjoying Roobios and hot cocoa this month, then nothing but water in earnest to bring in the new year. December is a nice way to get into the groove.

nice fuckin work man



I started this new drug empagliflozin and one of its side effects is thirst and lo and behold when I am actually thirsty I don't want redbull, which is good.

I think this will make things better/good

glad to have you on board


I want to take watuary to the next level. buy a url. invent and crudely draw a sexy mascot. the important things.

maybe even a way of registering for some reason 🤷‍♂️ probably because well, thereís already a couple/few ppl here for who this is year 3 and might be interesting to see how far I can take this and who wants to come for the ride and make it so thereís some way to show it
