X-HOOKER LIFE HACKS: the world’s newest everyday wisdom from the world’s oldest profession

X-HOOKER LIFE HACK #88: Life is a good news bad news story.

The good news is–
You can get used to anything!
But do you know the bad news?
You can get used to anything!

Before venturing into drugs and prostitution there were many things I never imagined I’d do. After I started using I separated myself from people who had sunk to unimaginable depths. During the early days of addiction a housemate in something I learned was called a “clean and sober house” boasted, “I can turn a trick real quick, and get that money!” Had she no self-respect? I thought, surprised and horrified. The ink was still drying on my Magna cum Laude degree from one of the world’s most prestigious colleges. I considered myself so superior to her that I didn’t consider the matter.

Today, the once inconceivable is humdrum. When an imaginary boundary is crossed, and you still feel like you, and no one sees the difference between the present and say, an hour ago, you look at your unaffected reflection in the mirror and think, with wonder, “why worry? That temporary action plan was really no biggie.” In time, you come to look like someone who had obviously crossed that line. But by then, you’re used to a permanent way of life. No biggie.
