 The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.

– Henry David Thoreau

The National Institute on Drug Abuse defines addiction as a chronic brain illness causing compulsive drug use, relapsing, despite harmful consequences (Schele, 2012).

Dopamine (DA) systems in the brain have been implicated in many clinical syndromes and behavioral responses of addictions including feeding, satiety, wakefulness, sleep, arousal, sex, drug addictions, attention, reward, decision-making, depression, anxiety, psychosis, and movement disorders (Pfaus, 2010, p. 877).

There are three “C’s” that uncover whether or not a person has an addiction.  For example, let us consider Shawn’s addiction.

The First C: Compulsive Behaviour

Shawn delved into his fantasies.  Whatever his thoughts fell on, he surfed the internet.  Shawn started with pornographic images and then videos.  Something hit his mind; he went on the internet looking for new pornography.  With time, porn…

Neil Diamond sang:

I am, I said, to no one there. And no one heard at all, not even the chair. I am. I cried. I am, said I. And I am lost, and I can’t even say why, leavin’ me lonely still.

untitledNoPurpose Outrageous Obsession Kills Purpose

I sat in a 72 sq. ft. office/bedroom.  Deep in depression … wondering … my life swiftly passing by me.

Porn had left me feeling empty.  It sucked every bit of enthusiasm out of me.

I clicked off the porn site.

I thought: What purpose was there in watching emotionally damaged people suffering from self-degradation? What meaning was there in having an outrageous obsession for pornography just to masturbate?

What is an outrageous obsession?

“We All Bleed Red”

Peace Fills. We Have Peace When We Have Unconditional Positive Regard for One Another.

Bleed Red – Ronnie Dunn

As the holidays and times of being thankful have approached and will soon be gone, it is important to remember that the spirit of thankfulness and gratefulness should be carried on everyday. ‘Bleed Red’ is a wonderful reminder that in this vast world, we all ‘bleed red’ and every person needs to be valued no matter who you are… an active addict / alcoholic, a recovering addict / alcoholic, Christian, not a Christian, Homosexual, Heterosexual, etc.  No one is better then anyone else and I am truly thankful for reading daily blogs on WordPress and other sites that remind me of this.  I am fascinated by what others have to write in regards to things such as emotional stories, open discussions about science / health, life stories, etc. Today, I am thankful and grateful that everyone is different in this world and that people share their differences, adversity…

This post on blackouts can be for sex addicts, as well, who are alcoholics. The information may save a life, yours.

I was a blackout drinker. It is terrifying to wake up and not know where you are. What a demoralizing experience. However, I am grateful for some of my memory lapses, because there are some things I am better off not knowing. For a long time I thought only alcoholics blacked out. That is not true. My husband thought that everyone who drank blacked out, and it was just a normal part of “partying”. Of course, that is not true either.

What is a blackout?

A blackout is an alcohol induced memory loss. Blackouts occur when alcohol blocks neurotransmitters that send memories from short-term memory to long-term memory.

They are able to have conversations and act in ways that…
