Addictions can come in different forms. Most addictions are into drugs, smoking, and alcohol. But not for this Hollywood star, Sarah Lassez. This actress has been in the business for a long time and has appeared in over 20 movies together with Dennis Hopper, Matthew Modine, and Rose MacGowan. She is addicted to seeing psychics.
According to her, this is the result of combined career uncertainty, romantic turbulence, and future obscurity. There was even a time when it cost her $1000 a month which was way over her rent.
When she told people about this, they would usually burst into laughter or they would try to keep it down. “If they didn’t laugh out loud, you could tell they were repressing it. It does sound silly,” said Lassez.
The actress who is a graduate of New York University and mother of two computer scientists spent more on psychic, clairvoyants, and mediums when compared to an actor spending on his cars and houses.
She was also into online psychics in websites like Keen.com, Kasamba.com, and Asknow.com. These were very helpful to her as these were available even at night. She would even call about 6 times in one day.
“I never considered myself to have an addictive personality. I never even had a problem with cigarettes or caffeine. But it literally felt like a high,” she added.
The good thing is that she has now recovered from the addiction and is working on helping other “psychic addicts” overcome their addiction. She, in fact, has a website for her support group, psychicjunkie.net.
It is believed that though Ms. Lassez may be the only person today who has come out into the open about her addiction, it is clear that there are more out there who are just afraid and ashamed to admit their condition.
