#1 The Start of the Quest

I would like to start by introducing myself and my reasons for starting this blog.

Throughout my life I have met countless people who have asked me to keep a record of my life and my experiences, and very recently I made the decision to start writing a journal and saving memories, so that I can write memoirs which may inspire/entertain or shock some people.

I was born as a “gifted and talented” child with a very high IQ, and at age 5 I was diagnosed with ADHD, which was untreated and un-managed, due to the fear of medication, until about a year ago. Because of this, my childhood was utter chaos and like roughly 75% of people with ADHD I was instantly addicted to everything I ever came across. Continue reading “#1 The Start of the Quest”

Going Ferrel in the Amazon Rainforest

I know it has been a long time since my last blog post but after the last post I felt like a chapter had closed and I needed to wait a bit to find inspiration to write again. This post gives an insight of what it was like to be in the deep jungle and learn from the natives.

It is a long post but I hope it is an enjoyable read.

#6 How Strattera Changed my Life

This article will go more into depth about the process of starting treatment for ADHD which I mentioned in my article about seeking help for Alcohol Addiction.

It explains the whole process of getting treated and what I experienced along the way, in a way which I hope is easy understand.

I am happy to say that this article concludes the introductory “autobiographical” story and brings everything up to the current date with where I am now, both physically and mentally.


From now on I will be able to focus more on what I am learning from my travels and experiences and writing about different things that I pick up along the way and hopefully starting a video log and potentially making a mini documentary in the Amazon.

#5 Why Is Everyone Drinking and Sniffing Cocaine To Solve Their Problems?

This article will focus on problem drinking, and why we do this. I will try and use my experiences and the experiences of people that I have met – that have opened up to me – in order to write in a way that will hopefully be able to touch some people. The article will focus on problem drinking but also mention the problem use of Cocaine – as often these go hand in hand.

I really want to make clear that I am not Anti-Alcohol or Anti-Drugs at all, for people that can use them with moderation, and are in control, they are a wonderful pleasure and very enjoyable. I just want to help people that feel they HAVE to use substances to hide from things, and that cannot control their use.

#4 If You Think You Might Have ADHD – You Probably Do

This is a brief overview of life before I started treatment for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). I am sure that parts will resonate with some people – as I meet/know so many people that I see all the characteristics of ADHD, which is either channelled into addiction, or holding them back from pursuing an aspect of their life/life in general.

I have so much more that I need to write about regarding this topic, but I needed to keep the first post fairly short just to build up the backstory and share some information.

#3 Using Naltrexone to Combat Alcohol Addiction

Naltrexone is an opiate blocker that in simple terms is used to block the pleasure signals back to the brain and is used in the treatment of alcohol and opiate dependence. Interestingly, alcohol and opiates work in similar ways in the brain.

#2. Getting Treatment for Alcohol Addiction

This post is a brief overview of the steps involved in seeking help for my problem and the path to recovery. It was very difficult to write this as I started writing, and was going off on so many tangents it was basically turning into a dissertation.

I have covered all the points I think I need to cover and I will go further into detail in future posts. I recommend clicking the link during the post to read my experience with Naltrexone as well as the 2 posts go hand in hand.

Assassination in Rio

When I went on a walking tour of the city the name Marielle Franco was mentioned and touched upon briefly, and I made a note of it to investigate further. The name came up again whilst watching the winning Samba School – Mangueira, as part of their float was dedicated to her – and I was lucky enough to be with some Brazillians who explained to me the significance of the memorial to her. I knew I had to write about it.


“Her relentless and brave activism against the most lawless police battalions, her opposition to military intervention, and, most threateningly of all, her growing power as a black, gay woman from the favela seeking not to join Brazil’s power structure, but to subvert it”

Glenn Greenwald (Journalist and friend of Marielle)

Bitcoin, Ethereum, and The Lessons Learned from My Mistakes

This post will explain my path into borrowing money, investing in Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other crypto currencies and the lessons I learned from the mistakes along the way. I will also explain briefly the different investment opportunities that I believe we should all investigate.

I have written this post as it is something that a lot of people have asked me about and have been interested in.


Disclaimer – I am not an expert and I am not plugging anything. I am simply telling my story and then recommending that people take time to look into investment opportunities.

What Actually is Carnaval?

The majority of us have all either seen on TV, or been at a Carnaval celebration – but does anyone actually know what its about? I found out why certain countries celebrate Carnaval -and why for example its not something we have in the UK- before I came here, but I was still not particularly interested in it. Yesterday I spent the day with some Brazillians who took me down to the, “Sambódromo“, (the stadium type place where people watch the parades), to buy a ticket for the “finals” of the “competition” on Saturday. I was thinking “how can there be “finals” of a parade?”. When they started explaining to me how it all worked and why it is SUCH a big deal in Brasil I became much more interested.
