About Me


I am an ordinary working class man who, at one time or another, has developed some of the most damaging and destructive habits that the human race has created. My education stopped at the age of 16 when I left to work in a kitchen factory for £35 per week so I could afford to get drunk with my friends on the weekend.

In the conventional sense I have been addicted to alcohol, nicotine, recreational drugs, gambling, pornography, sugar and caffeine. My relationships have suffered through my inability to communicate effectively. I have spiralled into debt due to a complete disregard for money borne out of the fact that I think I am immortal; a problem that has also created a 24/7 take-away lifestyle of a sedentary man. Last, but certainly not least, I have lived an unbalanced life where I have spent far too much time in a career that I hated in the pursuit of money I wouldn’t have even been alive to spend. This commitment to my duty separated me from those that I should have cared about the most.

The Needy Helper & Lean Life

The Needy Helper is a place where people who suffer from destructive habits can hang out, and learn that not only are you in very good company, but that there are options available to you. Options that will help you change these destructive habits permanently so you can learn to live a more fulfilling life free from the shackles of stress and depression.

I have successfully quit drinking, relapsed and then successfully quit for a second time.

I have been sober for four years.

If you would like to turn your life around, stop drinking and create a wonderful life, then let me help you.

I am currently writing a book and then I have plans to put my Lean Life course online. In the meantime if you need any coaching on how to quit drinking, and the Lean Life principles, then contact me at needyhelper@gmail.com for further details.

This site also contains a wonderful Podcast where I interview a variety of people connected with addiction, and I also post my private diary entries so you can follow me as I pursue my own personal dreams and desires.

You need to be a Bronze member to access these two areas and it’s completely free of charge. Just leave your e-mail address and you will gain access to them.
