Re: Preferred Mode of Oblivion

A red wine buzz every now and then, sleeping and dreaming, listening to music with headphones, and reading weird and horror fiction. Also watching John Carpenter's THE THING with a bottle of scotch late at night.

Re: Preferred Mode of Oblivion

I was suffering from back pain recently due to an accident and I was prescribed Oxycodone. I was never a drug user of any kind and did not see the allure. But once I took the pill a few times, and the pain went away, and I was able to lay in bed, as relaxed as I had been in years, I suddenly got it. I understood. For that reason, I made myself stop taking it. It is a road I could too easily have gone down and never come back from. That particular road, I decided, wasn't for me.

Now, I still try to achieve some degree of tranquility through silence and music. Sometimes I simply run a fan in a darkened room for white noise, at or times I try light ambient music. Music, from the prior posts I have read, seem to be one of the most popular techniques for temporary oblivion. At that point, I lay down, try not to move, and let me mind "settle" or quiet down. Sometimes it works, sometimes not.

Ghostly fiction and girl groups help stave off suicide for another day.
