Involuntary Commitment for Addiction

Involuntary Commitment for AddictionHelplessness and AddictionWatching a loved one self destruct is one of the hardest things that any human has to face. This is what happens when one individual falls into the hell of addiction – they will usually take their family with them. Those people around the addict may feel completely powerless to resolve the situation. The addict denies they have a problem and refuse to consider any suggestions that they get help. The family then have to choice of watching this ... read more »

My Troubling Chocolate Addiction

With all the capability of my soul, I agree with the Incas of old that chocolate is the food of the gods. I don't know what it is about chocolate which tinges my eyes with a worshipful, hypnotic glaze and makes me abandon all rational thought and reason. Eating too much chocolate is not good for my heart, The caffeine and sugar makes it flutter and increase in speed, mature moderation is my goal, yet still I persist in partaking in these elaborate gorging sessions regardless of the consequences. ... read more »

Growing Up Is The Way To Go

I often wonder what people are thinking. If a child was not gaining weight or growing, people would be concerned. They would begin to investigate the reason behind the lack of growth. Questions would be asked. Is it an organic reason? An environmental reason? Are the parents not contributing to the growth of their child? [] read more »

Five signs you’re an obsessive writer:

he geeky writer is seated behind the typewriter typing incessantly, those around the writer carry on as if the writer is invisible. Why doesn’t the writer join them?

I am not a drug addict… …anymore.

Tough Love

Today in the checkstand I overheard a conversation that was pretty private; this actually happens quite often because there are a lot of people who tend to treat checkers rather like furniture, forgetting that we are living, breathing human beings with ears to hear with. Usually what I am privy to is a bunch of mind-melting gossip about who is cheating on who, who is in jail, who got out of jail, who is knocked up, and so-on and so-forth. Not really stuff I give a rat's ass about. The woman who caught my... read more »

And my goodbye to Lou Reed I have been quite ill during the weekend that has just ended and the loss of Lou Reed did not make my Sunday any better. And I hate Sundays anyway.

Needless to say that Sunday, October 27 became, musically wise, entirely d... read more »

What Happens To The Writer When The Story Is Over?

The 101 North and the purge of a writer who must live through her characters I was driving to Ventura the other day, for the big interview. There is something heavy and dense about me, something that I don't expel easily enough and that I must therefore purge through words; besides, I think it's my duty, what I am here for. You may as well easily enough discharge what I say with a click of mouse, the smooth track pad of your fancy MacBook Pro. I have received the first negative critique to my writing ... read more »

First Day experience

Habits are trait of one’s behaviors and believe me it will be an injustice towards that specific habit if we become judgmental in defining it as a good or bad habit. I remember my early college years when one of my friends offered me raw chewing tobacco, which I courteously denied at the very first; he coaxed “nothing will happen..!! Have it” I took it and kept it read more »
