The story of how iCod's week-long withdrawal from SAS.


Yes I'm still alive, and I'm kicking as well.

I must say, this past week was been truly horrible, an internal war, even...

If you somehow haven't notice yet, j have been absent from the forum for a week, 7, days, 168 long hours, as the mods finally got to me and slammed that glorious ban hammer straight onto my unsuspecting face. Le sigh.

Now, unless something has changed, frustration is where I can ***** and moan all like so let us begin.

Been a **** week but I only do rants on.my blog. But basically, life without SAS is completely different than with it. Having been actively daily for several, several months, I.obviously found it difficult to live with simply not being able to even this damn site. It was definitely a struggle.

I mostly found myself bored as all hell, nothing to do....I usually would spend upwards of 8-10 hours a day on this site, so just imagine what losing such a huge block of free time feels like. I usually found myself just staring at my wall in complete isolation and boredom, and without my escape of SAS, well, I can't believe I didn't go crazy.

Most normal people would take this banning situation as a sign to do productive **** and whatnot, but I'm pretty sure it's clear that I'm no normal person at this point.

The week was long and rough. I first tried to find a temporary replacement for SAS, just somewhere I could vent out my thoughts and relate to others without being called a woman-hating narcissist by the mods.

I tried that social phobia network site first, but it was pretty dead and inactive, so that was out of the question. Upon Google searching for more social anxiety relates forums, I've seem to have come up empty. Only the forum I was banned from and a totally dead one. Just my luck.

So feeling completely defeated and ashamed, I gave up on the search and proceeded to do what o always did on my free time before I had SAS. Sleep and cry. I would've been nostalgic if it wasn't so terrible.

Day 2 of my jail sentence, a SAS user randomly appears out of nowhere and adds me on Skype. (Not saying who as talking about members is appearently against the rules and i dont wanna get them more pissed at me.) Surprised, though escatic, we exchange words for a period of time before heading our separate ways for the day. It was nice to know o wasn't totally alone in my banishment, yes indeed.

The rest of the 7 days consisted of me getting hooked onto Reddit and /r9k and eating and sleeping and facing life alone. Quite **** tbh, 0/10 do not recommend.

But who ****ing cares. I'm back, that's all that matters, and thank God. I was slowly spiraling down insanity and sever depression from this isolation and I didn't even have the internet to help me anymore. Dear lord it was awful. I am not back on my sweet sas drug.

And that is my survival story. Real tear jerker, eh? Lol.... Let's just hope my words don't get the mods enraged anymore.

8-10 hours here? Dude I think it's great that you visit SAS and enjoy your time here, maybe it helps you relax and what not, but this is just wasting your time away, you won't get anywhere like this.Same goes for reddit and 4chan

JUST DO IT, ******

I took a month or two off and it was great. Well, the months themselves were (and are) horrible, but I didn't miss this place one bit that's for sure. I'm still contemplating not staying, though the thing is I started losing contact with a lot of the online friends I spoke to outside of this site, so I just ended up having no outlet or pushing all my problems onto one person. This site can really be toxic at times. I recommend try to get at least one or two people to talk to before you leave, or you'll just get bored and lonely and come back.

And yeah, spending 8-10 hours on an Internet forum on a daily basis will eventually turn you into this:

We're happy to have you back. I really don't know how I managed to last a month away from this place...

Apparently I don't understand the rule of "who has it worse" andbroke it too many times
I will now forever avoid any threads regarding dating/women...etc. Too damn risky.

Tbh the mods are just too sensitive. they're banning people who really don't need to be banned and just ignoring the.obvious trolls and letting them raise hell. A little bit biased if you ask me.

I know full well that I'm wasting my time on here. I literally have nothing is going on in my life. I have failed already. This is quite literally my only and lost outlet in the way of connecting with other human beings and doing something else besides sitting in front of the computer and crying about my life.

Let sigh...thank **** I'm back. I was going insane.

Lol, I'm sure the word normies hasn't been brought up in the last seven days, that has to be it. That's my word.

Well, off to S&S to argue with Cletis. Damn I really ****ing missed this place.
