Why are you known as Sir Charles?
When I was recording music more frequently a music producer wanted to create a stage name for me…It stuck…and I never bothered to change it!
Tell us about the 3 P’s of success and how they came about?
After being clean from drugs, and losing my family…I found the transition challenging, then more change came with my first bout of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma…the light came on and I knew I needed to make good use of my remaining days…and that was before the second diagnosis.
I realize that in being clean, I spoke to people all of the time and I enjoyed it. The good thing was that I was able to remember the conversations being sober. I became a certified counselor because of my passion, and I knew that dealing with people was part of my purpose. Hence the 3 P’s were born (Find Your Pleasure, Find Your Passion, & Find Your Purpose).
How did you overcome drug abuse and what drugs did you abuse?
You mean what drugs didn’t I use (LOL)! I went through the ranks from beer, to wine, to a taste of alcohol , to mary jane, to cocaine which was my main thang…why do I feel like I’m about to start singing Rick James…(LOL), but eventually crack which was my greatest loss. I overcame them easily and strangely. God convicted me through the eyes of my children. I could not look at my children anymore…at least not without being riddled with guilt. That was the first step to me making the change in my life.
What was it like to be married to someone you thought you’d be with forever only to get a divorce?
It was wild because I initiated the marriage. I thought with a new lease on life I wanted to clear up all matters in my life that had shade. Once it was clear that I was not going to be with the mother of my children I wanted to move forward. So, I was told not to make any major decisions during my first year of sobriety…of course I did it anyway. Failing at marriage was horrible for me because with a sober heart and mind I failed before God, and I failed at love…once again. It takes time to get over this emotional period in life.
You’re a two time Cancer survivor and your story has been added to medical journals. Did you think you were gonna die? How did you survive?
Well technically, we’re all dying, but I know what you mean…I was not afraid and I did not play with the thoughts or words surrounding death. I felt that this was all purposeful, and when I came through it I just knew it was time to make good use of my days! I juice, I am even more faithful, I pray and talk to God often…nothing magical…just keeping it real!

Video Game Addiction Symptoms
The important thing to remember about video game addiction is that it’s not an officially recognized DMI-IV diagnosis. The reason for this largely revolves around the fact that data on the concept of video game addiction has only been compiled from the last few years.
It’s possible that video game addiction will become a DMI-IV diagnosis in the coming years, but for now addiction is a concept that’s largely a judgment call on your part.
Video Game Addiction Symptoms To Consider
Although addiction to video games is not yet a recognized form of addiction, the data that has been gathered has created a number of symptoms that can lead to an unofficial addiction diagnosis.
It’s crucial to not lose sight of the fact that these symptoms have been proposed by numerous interest groups who would like to see addiction to video games to become officially recognized.
These are just some of the psychological, physical, behavioral, and relational symptoms that have been proposed:
Determining Video Game Addiction
Another thing to keep in mind when it concerns video game addiction is that it might be part of a larger problem. This can be anything, and this is where it might be a good idea to seek the advice of a mental health care professional. Just remember that you’re not going to walk away with an official addiction to video game playing diagnosis. By no means is that meant to suggest however that professional help should not be sought, whether you’re concerned about someone in your life, or even if you worried about your own habits.

When a person has a few drinks, there is actually a lot of science that goes into that wobbly or funny feeling. The body is processing the alcohol and a lot of different body parts take part in the science of getting drunk. There are a variety of things happening in the brain that help to do things such as limit one’s inhibitions, cause slurred speech and cause feelings of pleasure.
The alcohol finds its way into the bloodstream and then needs to be processed out of the body. The kidneys have a good deal of work to do since alcohol does not easy pass through the body. Alcohol will dehydrate a person. This is what causes a person to get a headache and not feel good the next day.
A person does not have to know the science behind getting drunk or tipsy. Just know that there are a lot of valid and scientific reasons behind the tipsy feeling, the loss of inhibitions and the sick feelings the next day.
