    'Deacon's Choice'


    - Quality stage productions and events throughout Illinois -

    Not only will this film break records and win awards, it will also be used as a fundraiser for many organizations across the world whose mission is to support recovery for affluent addicts, women and teen girls.

    Deacon's Choice

    We reap what we sow…good or bad, and sometimes the decisions we make end up affecting and hurting the ones we love. "Deacon’s Choice” is described as a powerful story of an Ex-Chicago Politician and his family’s tug-of-war battle to overcome a secret that has lain dormant for 30 years. It embodies the trickle effect of selfishness, cover-ups, addiction and consequence that has chipped away one young lady’s heart, passion and esteem.

    The intensity of this film is just as stimulating as “Requiem for a Dream” & “Precious” yet its cultured like the movie “Fire Proof.” This compulsive tale of a family’s secret reminds us that life for each of us has its own individual journey.

    Take a moment to check it out on Indiegogo and also share it with your friends. All the tools are there. Get perks, make a contribution, or simply follow updates. If enough of us get behind it, we can make 'Deacon's Choice the movie' happen.

    Tobacco Use More Prevalent among African-American Adolescents Living in Public Housing Communities, Researcher Says


    - Researcher says early interventions needed to curb youths’ tobacco use -

    COLUMBIA, Mo. – Today, nearly 4,000 adolescents in the United States will smoke their first cigarette, and about a fourth of those youth will become daily smokers, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reports. A recent study by a University of Missouri researcher found that African-American youths who live in public housing communities are 2.3 times more likely to use tobacco than other African-American youths.

    “Compared to their same-aged peers, youth living in public housing were more likely to use tobacco and have positive attitudes about using tobacco,” said Mansoo Yu, an assistant professor of social work and public health. “As previous research suggests, early use of tobacco increases individuals’ chances of using more serious drugs later. In addition, early drug use is related to other serious problems, such as delinquent behaviors and family and social problems.”

    Mansoo Yu
    Mansoo Yu, an assistant professor of social work and public health, found African American youths living in public housing communities were more likely to use tobacco than their peers.

    Yu and his colleagues surveyed 518 urban African-American youths ranging from ages 11 to 20 who resided in public housing communities in three large U.S. cities. The survey measured adolescents’ attitudes toward tobacco use, depressive symptoms and delinquent behaviors.

    Youths living in public housing might be more likely to be fearful, live around crime problems, have poorer social relationships and have higher levels of psychological strain. These factors could contribute to the increased rates of tobacco use, Yu said.

    “Smoking cessation programs for young African Americans living in public housing communities should focus on reversing their positive attitudes toward tobacco use,” Yu said. “In addition, programs should help address the youths’ depressive symptoms and keep them from getting involved in delinquent behaviors.” Additionally, Yu said tobacco prevention programs should target young children in public housing communities.

    “Early interventions are critical for these individuals since the likelihood of being exposed to risky behaviors dramatically increases as the children age,” Yu said. “In public housing communities, adolescents may have easier access to drugs and social activities where drugs are used.”

    Yu is an assistant professor in the School of Social Work, which is part of the MU College of Human Environmental Sciences, and also teaches in the Master of Public Health Program. The study, “Understanding tobacco use among urban African-American adolescents living in public housing communities: A test of problem behavior theory,” was published in Addictive Behaviors. Yu’s coauthors included researchers from the University of Illinois at Chicago, Boston College and the University of South Carolina.

    Addiction Does Not Discriminate: A Ground-Breaking Equal Opportunity, Self-Help Recovery Manual That Works For Everyone!


    New York, NY, May 9, 2012 – In light of Whitney Houston’s demise and others who have been tragically hurt by addiction, Dr. Peter Sacco was asked in a recent interview: ‘Why do so many people have addictions, engage in bad habits, and seem so miserable?’ His response pinpoints why people often become dependent on a ‘fix.’ He said, “Most people today are having what I call near-life experiences--they endure life, withstand it, tolerate it and become indifferent. The problem is too many people stopped enjoying and engaging life way too young, when they were told their dreams are ridiculous, impossible and that they should grow up. Until you awaken the little kid in you again, you are not having a real-life experience!”

    Addictions
    In Sweet Acceptance Versus Bitter Resistance (Booklocker and Andrews UK Publishing), author Dr. Peter Sacco breaks new ground, combining psychology with spirituality by using cognitive behavioral therapy techniques together with the eight Beatitudes from the Holy Bible, to overcome addiction. By applying the principles and tools outlined in Sacco’s book, readers will be on the road to recovery in breaking addiction, dealing with bad habits and/or changing negative thinking patterns.

    Sacco teaches individuals held captive by an addictive personality how to find the self they have been seeking and how to receive what they want in life. No one need ever be a slave to cigarettes, expensive drugs, or a painful drinking habit – Sweet Acceptance Versus Bitter Resistance is the pathway to a better life – without dependency!

    Sacco's groundbreaking self-help book comes on the tails of his recent self-help books (Penis Envy: Does Size Really Matter?, Breast Envy: The Women Who Love Them And The Men Who Lust Them, and The Madonna Complex: Why Men Are Wired To Cheat which are now published on 4 continents. Much of the research in these books (sex addiction, cosmetic surgery/make-over addictions and pornography addiction helped lead to the creation of this latest book).

    Dr. Sacco’s latest book is highly rated and accepted by individuals, regardless of whether they are going through 12-step programs or one-on-one counseling, as well as those with no addictions support. By combining his practical and theoretical knowledge with his revolutionary 3-tier approach of psychology, spiritualism and law of attraction, he provides readers with the necessary tools to overcome their addictions and transform their lives.

    NY Times bestselling author, Robert A. Schuller, had this to say about Peter Sacco’s latest book: "For Years, Peter has been using his cognitive training skills and blending them with the 'Beatitudes.' The results of blending science with the words of Jesus have truly had amazing results. No surprise. What is a gift to humanity is that today he is sharing his secrets with you in this insightful book."

    Peter Sacco is the author of many international, popular selling books, as well as a psychology professor, and former private practitioner/Hypnotherapist. He is the former Editor-in-Chief of Vices: The Magazine for Addictions, Habits and Well-Being, and author of more than 400 magazine articles. As a sought-after speaker, he lectures at universities in the USA and Canada, specializing in relationships, criminal psychology, addictions, sports psychology, and mental health.

    This award-winning author has been a regular resident expert on several television programs as well as hosting the show Mental Health Matters for over two years. To learn more about this inspiring figure, please visit www.petersacco.com
