I only entered the industry thinking short term. Money! I needed lots of money and quick.
The amount of debt I was in was piling up quickly, and I feared being homeless. I remember walking by homeless people and crying because this was going to be me unless I acted quickly.
Seeking help to conquer my addiction to alcohol and recreational drugs was never an option, the thought that passed my mind. I was living off bread and butter and cheap bottles of wine.
I wanted money to keep a roof over my head and fuel my addiction.
I broke into the industry by first working in a massage parlour (a smelly damp brothel) the clients made my skin crawl! I was drained and depressed, and my drinking worsened.
After a month or so of working within the brothel I became independent and began making money I have only ever dreamed of making. I continued to drink and take recreational drugs, and my debts slowly became manageable.
Even now that I have finally managed to clear my debts, I only have a couple of hundred pounds to my name. I am going to continue with this line of work, I only have to work 6 days per month and usually average around 500 GBP per day!
I am my own boss and have plenty of time to concentrate on myself and my studies and to begin saving for a house. I don’t plan to be in the industry forever…
