While the book was doing great business in the world of libraries, the COVID-19 virus has shut them down for a while. It’s cool seeing people borrow your book and wondering if you’re helping someone get through a tough time. Just a reminder in case anything happens with the mail system that you can always get an electronic version of the book. I appreciate everyone’s purchase and if you haven’t, please consider buying yourself a copy at This Link.

Would you like to read an unbiased opinion on the book, either check out the glowing reviews on Amazon, or look at this blog: Review from Mental Health @ Home

First Book New CoverMy first book, a memoir about my decent into porn addiction, The Addiction Nobody Will Talk About: How I Let My Pornography Addiction Hurt People and Destroy Relationships is available on Amazon with a new chapter that was added in late 2019. If you’d like to learn about how somebody ends up where I did, this is my recollection of events that led to my eventual rock bottom. Link to the Book on Amazon

Corona Front GraphicI Confirmed It: Porn Companies Doing Big Business, Recruitment During ‘Social Distancing’​ When Donald Trump went on TV that Wednesday night in early March as one of the last people to admit what many of us had come to recognize in the previous 72 hours – the Coronavirus was the real deal – one of my first thoughts went to how this was going to be the single greatest boon to the pornography industry since the invention of the Internet.

There are a lot of men and women in this world whose COVID-19 idle hands are likely turning them to online pornography. Not all will end up as addicts, but some probably will who never would have otherwise. Click Here

I see these yahoo 22-year-olds on the beach in Florida, screaming “Coronavirus come and get me! Nothing’s gonna stop my partying!” while ironically holding a Corona beer in their hand on TV.

Screen Shot 2020-02-25 at 4.05.00 PMSorry Parents, You Can’t Porn-Proof Your Kids in 2020 My parents raised me to think that one sip of beer would lead me, minutes later, to the destitute life of a wino, laying in the gutter, hiccupping while holding a bottle like an alcoholic cat out of a Bugs Bunny cartoon.
