Screen Shot 2018-10-10 at 2.33.48 PMOctober 10 – Here’s a 30-minute interview where I was asked a lot of questions I never have before. We obviously talk addiction, but we talk random stuff such as what it’s like to get a key to the city and how I chose my book cover photo. Audio is available via ITunes while video can be found on YouTube.

 

Screen Shot 2018-10-16 at 10.57.05 AMOctober 16 – Here’s a 35-minute interview that talks a little less about my story and a little more about porn addiction in general. I recorded this when I was coming off of pneumonia, so apologies for the occasional cough I tried to muffle! Listen to the podcast here.

Screen Shot 2018-10-15 at 3.17.34 PMWhat Was Inpatient Rehab Really Like? It’s been nearly a year since I talked about my experience at inpatient rehab, and the positive reaction I got to the last Q&A has made me think it’s probably time to revisit it from a first-person point-of-view deeper than I have before.

Screen Shot 2018-10-05 at 1.19.34 PMFeeling Human Again, If Only For a Moment Lately, I feel like I’ve been in a place where I recognize just how few people, especially where I live, are ever going to be ongoing parts of my life again. As time marches forward, and the reality of the situation sinks in, it’s made me a bit depressed. That negative feeling was broken, if only momentarily, last night and it felt wonderful. Click Here

Screen Shot 2018-10-03 at 1.45.25 PMEverything You Wanted to Know About Probation Without Having To Commit a Crime to Find Out I’ve shared quite a few stories from jail, but once being locked up was done, my experience with the criminal justice system was hardly over. Jail is really just the middle part. At first you have the court system to wind your way through. That took me 22 months. Then, jail was 6 months. The final part, probation, is 36 months in my case. As of this writing, I’m now less than 10 months away from it being done. Click Here

      1. Vanilla Ice has a movie?! haha
        I don’t think sales are as important as you having the courage of sharing all of this. But of course, I wish that everything works out!

  1. Thank you for being open about this relevant subject! I, along with my other pastors, was never taught how to address this matter in seminary. Despite the neglect, God showed me how to extend grace to those with this struggle and help restore them to the path God has for them. Someone must speak up, and those who hear must not play the Pharisee.

  2. I heard you on a podcast and bought your book exactly four months ago now. I finally got through the book (I’m a slow reader but also thought it wise to chew on your story daily.) You may have saved my life. I took your advice and have filed this as a cautionary tale. Read, filed, and there to read again. Many positive actions have been taken in that time span. More to come. Sleep – I must add – has proven to be my biggest ally for positive change in my life over these past few weeks over which the most change has occurred for me.

  3. You are so welcome. As I read this reply from you to my post, I feel connected to you as not just a writer of a book but as a real person. It brings up emotions of both sadness and joy – for your hardships and your ultimate successes. I am sure much of that emotion is mine as I consider my struggles and several times when I thought my actions were about to bring my whole world down. I have had so many chances to turn it around and I feel that this will be the time when it may actually happen. Thank you again, Mr. Shea.

  4. Hey dude,

    Thanks for following my blog – I’d try to follow you back but I don’t know how to (just got this thing).

    It’s awesome you’re doing so much for the recovery movement – much respect!

    Peace Y
