New York based company BlackOutEndeavors LLC CEO, Corey Wesley has recently launched a new forum for those struggling with a chronic disease, 'addiction'. The new forum is known as URBAN FLRT, which stands for, 'Freely Living Real and True'. Corey developed this concept with the idea of addressing the stigma that comes along with being known as an addict. His vision is to combat the stigma wrongly associated with addiction, as well as promote a motivational slogan supporting prevention, treatment and to prove that recovery works with empowerment.

Corey Wesley readily admits he suffered from a crystal meth addiction. He knows first hand what it's like to go through addiction and recovery. He attempted various avenues including group therapy, however, he eventually sought out the path of spiritual organization and individual therapy. Although those avenues helped, he felt he needed more for his own personal recovery. That's when he started living by his motto: "Freely Living Real & True". Corey took several steps which included: 1-learning to deal with stress differently, 2-Examining who he allowed into his life, 3- reviewing what he was doing in his free time, 4- analyzing the way he viewed himself. To support him and his positive change in lifestyle Corey developed a silicone wristband to remind himself of how his life was improving through the "FLRT" motto. Some people wrap a piece of string around their finger to remember something, Corey Wesley just glances down at his wrist every time he wants a gentle reminder of his past addiction and his current path to success.

Corey knows that sobriety can seem impossible when struggling with addiction. However, recovery is never out of reach. With the right treatment and support, change is possible. Any road to recovery is never completely smooth. There will be pitfalls and setbacks along the way, but if you learn to examine the problem and envision change, you can have a successful path to recovery. Recovery is a long process that requires time, commitment, motivation and support! 'URBAN FLRT' helps in the support and motivation department by sharing their FLRT motto through their website and products. They have developed a website where people can read about others who have struggled and had success in recovery. People can also purchase products with the FLRT (Freely Living Real & True) motto to visually remind themselves of their path to sobriety and their positive goals. From a behavioral standpoint, many times it's extremely helpful to have a visual prompt to remind yourself of what's important to you. Something as simple as a wristband, T-Shirt, coffee mug or any item with words that trigger your thought process in a positive direction can be a huge help in staying focused.

Corey Wesley has not only left his meth addiction behind, he continues on his path of recovery and success by sharing his experience and knowledge with others who are going through similar struggles of addiction. Addiction comes in many different forms; drugs, alcohol, pornography, sex and more. Whatever your addiction is, know that you are not alone. There is help and support out there. Why not start by becoming a FLRT! Familiarize yourself with other people who are living the motto: "Freely Living Real & True". Start yourself on the path to recovery, start yourself on the path to a new and better "you".
