Re: "I'm an alcoholic"

Email_questionDear Trew Life,

I can’t put down alcohol. Whenever I try to go a day without it, I feel like I might faint and die. How could I stop drinking the stuff? Any suggestions?



Dear Marlane

Addiction is far more controlling than people would like to admit. There was a time when I was smoking weed every day! It helped me become creative (so I thought). But after awhile, I realized that I didn’t want to depend on some drug in order to create something with the talent that God had already given me.

Do I smoke now and again? We’ll keep that a mystery.

But in order to tear myself away from the stuff, I would put it up in a spot that was very uncomfortable to get to. I also threw myself into different writing projects that I was working on. I tried to substitute my addiction to weed with addiction to something more positive. I prayed more, and wanted to develop a connection. To be honest, I believe that weed helped me focus when praying, and I started to have more of a connection with God.

So try and invest more of your time doing things that are not surrounded by alcohol. Eventually, you’ll learn to go at least a couple of days or weeks without it.

Lesson On Building Blog Readers and Clients for Businesses

Success As many of you know, especially from my last post, I am a God fearing man. I believe that as followers of Christ we should always put God first in everything that we acquire to achieve. I don’t mean to come off preachy, but when God says there’s something for me to share, I know it will not only benefit my readers, it will also benefit me spiritually. I know, as well, that it’ll benefit my blog’s growth in readership.

I know many of you are scratching your heads, wondering what the hell the title of the post means, and I’m more than happy to tell you.

The other day, inspired by a gut feeling, I opened my bible directly to 2 Chronicles Verse 10, Chapter 7 and read:

“They said, ‘If you will be a servant to this people, be considerate of their needs and respond with compassion, work things out with them, they'll end up doing anything for you.’”

The Post

This is very much the case with your blogs and websites. This is the case in regards to your business and family relationships. It’s also the case if you’re a business owner and you have fickle customers and clients.

The scripture said, “…be considerate of their needs.” This means providing your readers or customers with products or prose that suit their educational or financial growth.

1. Blog Example

People are slightly filtering through your blog, but no one is staying and clicking through it. By writing posts that teach, inspire, or entertain them, you keep them coming back. Ask them what type of information they’d like to know about (What things would my Trew Life readers like me to focus more on?).

2. Business Example

You have a few clients, but nothing special. You have been trying to figure out a way to receive more business, then you learn to ask your clients what they feel is lacking from the industry. Whatever it is they want, you should try and supply it, within the confines of your industry. Unless, of course, you’re thinking out of the box, and come up with something awesome that beautifully merges together two different genres or industries. TL

The middle half of the scripture says, “…respond with compassion.” In order to respond with compassion, you have to have a strong desire in your heart to alleviate any stress that the reader or client has due to their ignorance of your helpful prose (blog or website) or products (business). Anyone who is successful will tell you that you have to embody passion for what you do. The bible gives us Business 101!

The last part of the passage concludes, “…work things out with them, they'll end up doing anything for you."

3. Work Things Out

Of course, work things out with them means to work out an arrangement where you can offer your service (whether it be inspiration blog posts about financial gain, spiritual enlightenment, or baking a cake) in a way that satisfies your readers or clients, as well as yourself.

4. The Rewards

If the above suggestions are put into practice, your readers or clients will end up doing anything for you, and this could stretch miles with imagination.

Trew Words

Suppose you wrote a book, and because you’ve been so good at providing relevant informational posts on your blog, about 1/3 of your readers buys that book. You see where I’m going here? Or if you make sure you send a client a card thanking him/her for their business, when they are able to provide you with something, they will give it to you without restraint.

But anyone who is kind hearted can tell you that you shouldn’t be a prick towards people. That won’t keep them coming back. They won’t appreciate you, and your business or opinion won’t be worth the dirt they walk on. Like I said earlier, they can be very fickle.

I’m elated that God was able to direct me to that passage, and I could give you a few tips on making your product (prose, service, or physical product) stand out. Take this as vital information. Feel free to read to passage for yourself, and do some studyingby clicking on this link: 2 Chronicles 10:7

This message has been brought to you prophetically through Trew Life over at Trew Life Advice.

I’d love to hear your response on the topic, so mEet Me iN tHe ComMeNts section, and we can chop it up.

Until the next post, my inspirational readers, much love, peace, and medicated hair grease.

P.S. (Post Script) After dissecting the passage (2 Chronicles 10:7) I decided to read more of the story, and found out that lots of the people were beseeching King Rehoboam to go easy on them with the rules and punishments. Rehoboam was a king of the ancient Kingdom of Judah, succeeding his father Solomon. His grandfather was David. He was the third king of the House of David and the first of the Kingdom of Judah. His name means he who enlarges the people.

So Rehoboam went to his elders and asked their opinions of how he should respond to the people. The scripture (2 Chronicles 10:7) was the elder’s response.

Re: "My girlfriend is acting like a crazy bitch"

Dear Trew Life,

Can you please help me understand something. My girlfriend is mad at me because I didn’t say anything when she asked me if I thought she’d gained weight since she had our son about 3 months ago. I chose to pretend like I was too into the episode of I Love New York to hear her. SO she goes crazy -n- tells me that I don’t care about her and shes a big fat joke and I didn’t say that. When I told her she looks very good to have just had a baby she whined and said she didn’t know why she even asked me, because I didn’t know what I was talking about in the first place.

I thought she’d only be emotional like this during pregnancy I didn’t think I would have to deal with it almost every day. Im having some second thoughts about our relationship and proposing to her. Help me understand man.



Wassup Chris,

I’m going to tell you a story, and Chris, I want you to pay attention. I aint just saying it for my health.

You have to appreciate her more than you do.

In the Bible a story took place in Bethany, where a woman brought a great treasure to Jesus. She carried an alabaster jar filled with ointment. Right in front of the shocked eyes of the disciples, she emptied the expensive perfumed over Jesus' head.

The disciples cried out in dismay. "Why this waste? For this ointment could have been sold for a large sum, and the money given to the poor." They understood charity. They understood giving to the poor, yet they could not understand this woman's actions.

Jesus, however, responded, "Why do you trouble the woman? She has performed a good service for me." He saw this woman's actions as service, as serving. More, she demonstrated an awareness of the coming death of Christ. Jesus said, "By pouring this ointment on my body she has prepared me for burial." The service the disciples would have rejected, the Master accepted and commended.

Too often they are told, as this woman was, that the service they offer for the body of Christ is unwelcome or spiritually wrong. Jesus offered encouragement, however. He said, "Truly I tell you, wherever this good news is proclaimed in the whole world, what she has done will be told in remembrance of her." We need to remember the brave woman with a jar of oil and all the other women in the Bible and in our history. They’ll help you appreciate what you have, Chris.

I’m sure that if you left her, you’d find someone else with some issue you wouldn’t like. Trust me, you probably have some problems she isn’t thrilled about. But she makes due, just like you should.

You plan on marrying this woman, Chris. I’d say stick it out, and if you feel the same way about her in the next 3 to 6 months, then stop the entire relationship. Some people just aren’t meant to be together. But if you come to this conclusion, make sure you part ways with respect for her. I mean, the chick pushed something the size of a watermelon out of something the size of a lemon. Respect her, damnit! She is also your child's mother. You two owe it to that child to be kind to one another and try and get along. I know it's not easy, bruh, but you have to try.

If you still need more help, don’t hesitate to send a request to and write in the subject line: Sponsored. Let me know, in the Email, if you want the rest of our interaction to be secret. I list my fees so you’ll know how much I charge for extra advice (meditation and further conversation via telephone). Or you can just pay an easy $5.00 dollars and I’ll send a one page report back to you, giving you an idea of what you should do, what you couldn’t see in the past, and what to expect in the future.
