He texted me at 10pm saying he was in the area and wanted to stop by and chat. So he stops by and we talk for like an hr and he falls asleep on my floor around 11pm. I watch a show on my computer and he wakes up around midnight and I offer him the couch and head off to bed.

I hear a mad frantic knock on my door around 4am...i open it and he's standing there...completely naked

him: I need to tell you something
me: why are you naked
him: i think i'm possessed
me: are you sleep walking
him: no...my neighbor passed away a couple years ago and i've been feeling something since then
me: demons aren't real
him: i'm telling you man, it's why i came here...i can feel it...

then he starts shaking and SCREAMING involuntarily

me: oh....shit

i start to think, i'm no doctor but i'll have to do my best to diagnose. first i need to figure out if it's an emergency

me: do you smell anything burning/do you feel any numbness in your extremities/etc
him: no, it's a demon leaving my body
me: NO it isn't, have you been feeling stressed lately?
him: extremely

fine, now i know it's a panic attack and likely not an emergency. i get him to the couch and get him some water. he drinks it...and starts SCREAMING again

fuck, he's gonna wake the neighbors, i can hear the floors creaking already (i have thin walls and an old building)

the one thing i've never heard of in a panic attack is uncontrollable screaming, so i do a google search and apparently its not uncommon

i tell him to breathe, count to 10 and reassure him everything will be fine. he gets out his phone and starts reading bible verses. i tell him to get all the screaming out of his system and he screams into the pillow for another 20ish minutes.

then he says "i think that was just an exorcism"
me: it was just a panic attack

he tells me the same thing happened earlier in the day while he was meditating in the park and some homeless guy had to help him

i stay up and talk to him until 7am before leaving him on the couch and going to bed. today he seemed much better, i woke up at 1pm and had to get some stuff done so told him he had to leave soon.

i vomited in his car a few months ago and felt guilty, so i had no choice but to help him

Some swear by letting a panic attack go since its a response to fight or flight. Working out or running allegedly helps. Good on you though. Id probably have handled it the same way before hearing about this strategy, and tbqh Id probably research it more before employing it myself or with the clients

Whys that? Pick up artists dont drink, it's a general rule. Drinking affects ability to think and learn. I'm a known lightweight (smaller frame and Asian) so it's easy to go from good buzz to blackout drunk in half a drink

Dude, stop doing this...you keep trying to catch me in a lie when you know exactly what I mean. Just because I dont drink doesnt mean I never drink. That party was 1 of only 2 times I drank in the last 8 months.

Drinks were free at the party and I forgot how much sorority girls like to drink, so it was easy to get carried away. It happens and it was still a fun night.

As a general rule, pick up artists avoid drinking since it negatively impacts your ability to think and learn. We make it so that we are naturally loose and charismatic, which is part of the reason a lot of people drink. If you're relying on alcohol for that, you're not actually developing yourself so its counterproductive to the goals of being a pick up artist. I'm also a lightweight (small frame and Asian, who notoriously genetically cant process our alcohol well) so I doubly shouldnt drink. As a bonus it saves a lot of money with the large volume that pick up artists go out.

However, it is a general guideline and not a law with any sort of harsh penalty. If you really want a drink, have one. I personally actually like the taste. I might have a drink if it's free, it's been a super long time and I have a craving for the taste, it's a special occasion, or if I'm locked in with a girl (just me and her, already been with her a long time, shes not leaving and wants to hang out more).

This night actually happened to hit all those checkboxes: havent seen my friends in a long time, havent drank in forever, it was free and i was hanging with a sorority girl. One drink turned into 2.5 and that was enough to push me over the edge because of the lack of alcohol for a long period lowering my normal already low alcohol tolerance. Affected my judgement tremendously and instead of focusing on everything like I normally would (ie it's a bad idea to make out with a girl in front of her boyfriend and all her sorority sisters) I instead focused only on the girl and that she was hot and willing to make out (at least I got that part right, even got her to be the one to initiate it). Having off game/poor judgment has its consequences, I was kicked out and ended up throwing up in my friends car.

What...so you're actually just confused by the semantics of the words? Jfc. Just because you dont do something doesnt mean you've never done something or you wouldn't do it again. Occasionally drinks is one way to phrase it, but I think its misleading because it implies it's more common than not, you can drink 25% of the times you go out and consider that occasional. Whereas pick up artists actively avoid alcohol and a good one will drink maybe 5% of the time, a very minuscule number. If it helps you, can phrase it "pick up artists dont really drink". If you really want to get into the minutiae of it, it is phrased the way it currently is to discourage new pick up artists from drinking and falling into bad habits. If phrased the way you phrase it, a new pick up artist might think "oh it's an occasional thing, I'm sure it's ok to drink, I can have one" instead of "oh pick up artists dont drink, I shouldn't have one".

For example, if I'm going to a new friends place and they offer me a beer I'll say "no thanks, I dont drink" and if they say "never?" I'll say "I'll rarely have one on very special occasions". If I said "I only drink occasionally" they'll be confused and say "this seems like an occasion". This happened like 99% of the time...peer pressure to drink is real. The phrasing takes off a lot of the pressure since its framed from the zero tolerance end. (Or sometimes I'll just say "I'm not much of a drinker").

It really comes down to whether or not you want to frame it from the positive end or the zero end of the scale. Since the amount of drinking is so minuscule and pick artists err on the less side, we prefer to frame it more on the zero end.

sure there is, but for alcohol "zero" actually has a very specific name and sub culture: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teetotalism

for me, leaving out the word "never" is enough to differentiate i'm not a teetotaler and should be enough to be inferred the same to anyone reading

example:

friend: you're having salad again?
me: yeah i dont eat meat
friend: never?
me: ill VERY rarely have chicken but that's it, maybe once a month

having never said the word "vegetarian" or "vegan", you're not violating the original statement and more accurately conveying how often you actually eat meat, ie it's closer to the zero side

(disclaimer, i'm not a vegetarian or vegan)

i don't understand the confusion. when i post stories, all the relevant details and facts are in there. if i post i have a drink with a girl i drank, if i didn't i didn't drink. other than that, i dont understand how much i drink/dont drink is relevant as long as i am actually processing and learning and running correct game

i go to clubs all the time and don't drink. may be uncommon, but it does happen. plenty of girls also don't drink, especially if they are driving

so...i just dont understand the relevance of any of it

Normal people don't say things like I don't drink except when I do, or I don't eat meat except when I do. That's called being only partially truthful. I'm guessing you're just so used to that as a pick up artist, you just can't help it now.

If he said he was, and it sounded like an honest post I bet he was I had a same experience with one of my sisters. Not to that extent but it was really scary and I hope she never has to go through that again.
