Director Bille Woodruff has worked with some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry, and with every project he is able to bring his creativity and sense of purpose along with him. He talks with Conversations LIVE's Cyrus Webb about the journey and his new movie ADDICTED.
Every fall, around the time of my sober anniversary (September 28), we have a conversation about addiction, asking the question: "Are you addicted?" In this conversation, we are working from the book: "Addiction & Grace: Love and Spirituality in the Healing of Addictions" by Gerald G. May, M.D.
Addicted one of Zanes great novels is going to film. Guest host and contest winner Kisha Steele will be interviewing the author of her choice tonight: ZANE! Check out the trailer: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2205401/
"Addicted" the novel:
For successful African-American businesswoman Zoe Reynard, finding the pleasure she wants, the way she wants it, is not worth the risk of losing everything she has: marriage to the man she has loved since childhood, a thriving company, three wonderful children. But Zoe feels helpless in the grip of an overpowering addiction...to sex. Finding a compassionate woman therapist to help her, Zoe finally summons the courage to tell her torrid story, a tale of guilt and desire as shocking as it is compelling. From the sensitive artist with whom she spends stolen hours on rumpled sheets to the rough and violent man who draws her toward destruction,Zoe is a woman desperately searching for fulfillment -- and something darker, deeper, and perhaps deadly. As her life spins out of control and her sexual escapades carry her toward a dangerous choice, Zoe is racing against time to uncover the source of her "fatal attraction" -- as chilling secrets tumble forth from the recesses of a woman's mind, and perilous temptations lead toward a climax that can threaten her sanity, her marriage...and her life.

Addiction. (n.d.). Retrieved June 10, 2014, from http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/addiction
What is the reason for the the addiction to approval (from everyone)?
It is the core belief that, “I am not good (enough).” So, you try to “fix it” by seeking out other people to make you feel “good enough” (but they are not able to counter your internal belief so you stay stuck in pain).
How to “fix it?”
Change your belief to, “I am good (enough).”
Seek professional, individual, group, religious, spiritual, psychological help if needed (whatever works for you).

You can do this!
There are no shortcuts to love and if you are a "sucker for love" or a "hopeless romantic" then you're probably addicted to love, and that's not love, so throw those notions away.
There's no such thing as love at first sight, so throw that away.
There's no such thing as a Soul Mate, so throw that away.
Unless you know what you want in a relationship, how you want to be treated and what characteristics a romantic interest has to have in order to be considered compatible, you’ve not done your due diligence and can easily be blinded by chemistry and really confused after sex.

Do you movies add to being addicted to drama in relationships? It's the tenth anniversary of The Notebook which has the topic of drama, romance and love on our minds. People tend to misinterpret peak experience, especially in romance, but really in all areas of life. It's like they think if there isn't drama of some sort there isn't passion. It really does turn into a drama addiction. The brain gets super hooked on the adrenaline, and then people create drama and things to get worked up over.
"Movies have really made it hard to be satisfied with the regular every day love and life that doesn't peak and valley that way." Lisa M. Hayes, Relationship Coach.
On today's show Lisa M Hayes, Relationship Coach and Cassie Parks, Lifeologist are going to talk about drama addiction. What happens in your brain that creates the addiction. How can you change it? Can you have a peak experience in a relationship and have it turn into a real realationship? How do you create drama free relationships?
We'll also talk about what it looks like to live a life that is fullfilling and drama free.
