Quest for productivity

Quest for productivityForeBrain Porn An evening with a friend with no plans. Plenty to do outside of this “bubble” situation, but nothing else to do in the present moment, but chat, drink tea, and live through moments of silence.

Is it ok if I do?

Is it ok if I do?The DRS It is often difficult to navigate certain social situations as an addict, especially if the drug of choice is socially accepted.
