Rehabilitation and the rehab they provide.

The Monster. Monsters are cool and exciting to my 2 and half-year-old child. He watches the cartoon and smiles while seeing cartoon characters running around the screen of his I-Pad. How can we watch a monster swallow us, and just say OK.
As we all know the instinct as a teenager Is to either get laid, drink beer, and have fun doing It. The repercussions never ever seemed to outway the being.

You all on the thread will probably say, He just has no self-control. Refer yourselves to the "What are you drinking now" thread.

I have a few stories to tell about 2 different rehab's. I'll share one story and It involves an A-class actor, his sister, a guy that was a star In Terminator 1 and 2, a woman who played in Freddy Vs Jason, Princess Leia and a guy who had his own series on a reputable network, Benjamin Bratt played his role.

I'll start with saying It was a favorable place to get sober and work on a sober living program. I'll end at the moment with saying; It was a joke and nothing more than an Insurance scam. If I had the willpower and fortitude I would file a lawsuit. I ended up homeless in Southern California for a week. I finally tucked my nuts under my chin and called my wife to fly me home. I lost all of my luggage and some of my proverbial will to see sober living as a good cause, I definitely found the scam artists that provide help.

I watched the great truth teller 'John Oliver' recently. It provided me the courage to find others and their story. If you have to use another alias; Aunt's, Uncles, Brothers, Sisters, etc... It's worth It for the sake of future people looking for betterment in their own lives.



I will add further context to this thread as I remember.

If all else fails, and we can't relate as a group to addiction.... Let's talk about things that are addictive... like Sugar, Netflix, your porn habits........

My ex went to one of these posh rehabs- it was good for her, but only because she was committed to getting sober. It sounds like most of the people there were in the in and out cycle of going to rehab. She described it as being like going to college without the boos, in a beautiful location with lots of amenities . If there is money for the taking people will get it.

Porn "addiction" on the other hand is a fun topic. Much to most of that addiction goes like this... wife finds out husband is watching porn. Husband reluctantly agrees to stop watching to soothe her. He watches again - addiction!!!!!! Addiction involves an increasing need for more of the "substance" that causes problems in that persons life..... Most of the time "porn" is not an addiction by definition. But I do find it interesting that violence on TV is much more acceptable than consensual sex.

If Y'all don't think that porn fucks up your mind, then you're crazy. There's loads of research coming out how harmful it is (and how much it's effects on the brain mimic drugs)

I believe someone brought this up on here a couple years ago and linked some interesting articles. The consensus of the research was that consumption of video pornography has devastating effects on the brain for many men, and the changes to the brain are largely reversible by simply stopping... much like detoxing from a drug.

- this is where the field is moving with regards to porn addiction- most referrals to therapy are related to angry wives or religious guilt.
