You know that gnawing feeling in your belly - you need more. You know you probably shouldn't, but it starts to take over your body.
Have you ever wondered if you might maybe sorta have an addiction?
Drink a glass of wine every single night.
Crush a sleeve of oreos in one sitting.
Scroll endlessly on social media when you have 948103948 better things to do. 🙋🏻♀️🙋🏻♀️🙋🏻♀️
Wake up 5 minutes before work starts because you just binged all of Sex/Life in one night.
When you think of an addict, what do you envision? I bet it's something like this, but slightly less funny.
Listen, we all have our vices.
I can f*ck up some dark chocolate and Fruit by the Foot like nobody's business.
But what about the addiction to people?
I remember when I was dating.
There were times when I just wished I could blend all my guy friends and make a perfect boyfriend.
Or just go on a dating app just so someone can take me out. Or feel someone's touch.
I learned it's an actual thing. it's called skin hunger!
But I definitely felt some guilt that I was using people when i needed to not be alone.
Did you see Sex Rehab a zillion years ago when you couldn't help but watch gorgeous celebrities like Amber Smith and various porn stars trying to get a handle on their sex addictions?
I know you asked yourself....WTF is wrong with these perfect people?
Turns out they must be humans, too. I found this list of 22 celebrities who are addicted to sex.
But what is sex and love addiction anyway? Is it a chemical dependency like we understand alcohol and drugs are?
The drop-dead gorgeous smoke-show Hollywood actress, director, author, and podcast host, Brianne Davis stopped by Culture Changers to talk to me about her experience as a hard core sex and love addict in Hollywood.
I think you'll find that we might be a lot closer to our vices that we would like to admit - and I wanted to get under the hood of what it's like to be an addict in Hollywood.
She was so relatable, so funny, so wise - and her STORIES!
