I'm here for you

All of us keep a secret now and then, but at least one out of fifteen people is a chronic Secret Keeper. Are you someone whose secrets have power over you? Do they make you misbehave, become sick, or violate others? People plagued by unhealthy secret-keeping habits “steal hours” away from their public lives to act out their secret behaviors or passions—sometimes for decades—but rarely get found out.

Many are everyday folks. Your next-door neighbor. The shopper ahead of you in the supermarket line. The driver beside you on the freeway. Or maybe you—or someone you love.

Don't think I'm passing judgment. I speak from both my personal recovery experience based on my own 40-year history and my professional knowledge as a licensed chemical health counselor. Check out my book, Stolen Hours, written to help persons suffering from self-defeating behaviors such as alcohol/drug abuse, compulsive gambling, sexual addictions, and eating disorders.

Let me hear from you. I want to "be here" for you. John Prin
