magazine article – addicted to addicts

Hi thereI hope you don’t mind me posting on your forum but I’ve been reading your postings and am inspired by the level of care and support. I’m a journalist writing an article on women who are ‘addicted to addicts’. ie: women who fall for the charming, driven, attentive side of a typical sex addict but then quickly realise there is a darker side.The article is for a leading women’s magazine and I’m looking for women who would be happy to take part. All responses will be treated with absolute respect but those that end up in the magazine may have to have their picture taken.This is not a beat-up on sufferers or victims of addiction – nor the women who love them!If you are interested, please contact me on (ADDRESS DELETED) or (NUMBER DELETED).Thank you.
