After the Show: Michelle

What is the status of your addiction today?

I still drink blood as often as I can, fully aware of the risks.

How has your life changed since being on the show?

My life hasn't really changed, as I spoke candidly about who I am and what I segment isn't entirely shocking to the people that matter to me in my life.

Was the doctor beneficial in helping you cope with your addiction?

The Doctor had pointed out risks that I was well aware of, he simply confirmed what I already knew.

How did being on the show and going to doctor help you in terms of dealing with your addiction?

I have not continued treatment, as I have no desire to do so, some addictions are good and some addictions are bad, the risks will always be there and I choose to indulge in them.

Currently, what steps are you taking to curb your addiction?

None, really.

Do you have any words of advice for other people dealing with addictions?

An addiction is only as bad as others tell you, if you know in your heart that you're regretfully doing something then it's your choice to stifle the urge. Just because others around you tell you that something is wrong because they don't do it, nor understand it, doesn't make it an error on your part. Know the difference between a futile addiction and normalcy for your own personal life. Also, know that the drug addict can't simply tell a cigarette smoker to quit.
