260: How to Quit Your Prostitute Problem | Feedback Friday
You're in your 30s, single, and you have a problem with prostitutes. You don't even really enjoy the experience and you know it's not worth your time, money, or the legal or health risks, but you still have an irresistible compulsion to continue meeting with them. Even more troubling is that you've noticed it's slowly changing how you see money and women. You know you'd like to settle down with the right woman some day, but you worry that the temptation to cheat on her with a prostitute could ruin everything. It's out of control. So what can you do? On this Feedback Friday, we'll try to help you figure out how to quit your prostitute problem (and determine why you have one in the first place).

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss:
- Interested in doing some prison time with Jordan next February? It's filling up fast; reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for details!
- Your proclivity for prostitutes is a problem. Perhaps there's a process to properly put this pricey, precarious, and pointless pursuit out to pasture?
- As a first time juror, how do you balance your desire for justice with impartiality in a difficult-to-prove case? [Thanks to Corbin Payne, Esq. for helping with this one!]
- When everyone has to work harder to make up for the boss' brother (who pulls full salary but only shows up half the time), can company culture be called to task, or is it just time to move on?
- You wound up on Hertz's do not rent list as the result of a fraudster stealing cars under your identity. The company refuses to take you off the list in spite of proof you weren't at fault. Is there any recourse for you?
- You believe you have solid ideas, but no capital or time to develop and market them. Is it possible to sell these ideas to someone with these resources without getting taken advantage of?
- You've just turned 18, but feel directionless. While you don't want to live a "normal" life that's been played out millions of times, becoming a therapist or trying your hand at standup comedy have crossed your mind. What's our advice?
- If you're the average of the five people you spend the most time with, what happens when you can't relate to anyone in your immediate circle since moving to be closer to your spouse's family in another country and settling for a miserable, underpaying job?
- Your coworker would be more articulate (and effective at his job) if he could only eliminate that Beaky Buzzard-like "duhhhhh" he uses as conversation filler. How can you tactfully suggest ways for him to hone his presentation skills?
