Never Underestimate the Power of Addiction

 2 Paths Before You - Which Will You Choose?On my trail of what makes up the psyche of pornography addiction and its effects on the loved ones of pornography addicts, I came across a genre I was unfamiliar with – “Hentai” which originates in Japan and is, in a nutshell, cartoon porn. As this type of pornography has come up often on my research journey, I decided to finally check it out as I was, frankly, finding it difficult to understand how comic book style cartoons could have such a grip on the lives

Embrace the Journey

The view from the "Everest View" HotelToday I attended a networking event. The guest speaker was a man called Richard Crossley who is currently staring death in the face due to being given a diagnosis of “incurable cancer”. But that’s another story for another day. That story is still unfolding…

The part of Richard’s speech which hit me between the eyes was when he spoke of a journey he took (before his diagnosis) to the Himalayas.

Dare to Dream

When I was imprisoned on a lock ward of a mental hospital for 3 weeks in 1995 with cannabis psychosis, the only dream I had was to escape. 18 years later and my dreams are very different.

A Powerful Lesson From A Baby Bird

My newly hatched baby birdYesterday my cat brought home a baby bird – newly hatched – although it had been well fed in the short time it had been alive as it was nice and fat.

Likewise, when we are flowing with humble self love and soul-filled confidence when we are thriving in our recovery, we give off the polar opposite vibes which tell people to treat us

Taking the Rough with the Smooth

A teenage violated by Max HardcoreLife can bring 4 seasons in one day sometimes. This morning I had to drag myself through rough research on the pornography industry and study of Max Hardcore in particular – legendary porn producer who takes great pride in the work he does initiating new teenage porn performers into the industry by defiling, degrading, abusing, “consentually raping” and brutalizing them. He says they are “gagging for” (or words to that effect) this type of brutal sex. Does this Max Hardcore initiate look
