Party Days: Welcome To The Zamner Zone
Being a single man in my late 20’s, combined with the fact that I was literally making money while I slept… was a recipe for wild adventures and disasters.
I went OFF the rails.
I started partying, drinking and drugging like there was no tomorrow.
I quickly built a harem of women that included multiple girlfriends (at least I was honest to every one about what was going on).
It was time to manifest another dream of mine: GO GLOBAL.
The Global Dream
In my early 20’s I read a few of books that shaped my dream life vision.
PT, Global Wealth Power and the Offshore Guide To Living were major vision builders for me.
I decided right then, that I wanted to live abroad. I wanted the adventure, the personal growth and the benefits of living in a new culture.
Wade and I decided to move to Panama together. My internet income made living wherever I wanted possible.
Debauchery quickly hits new levels.
Living La Vida Loca In Panama
I’ll never forget the day we arrived.
We flew into a monster thunderstorm. It was raining harder than I had ever seen in my life. The tropical humidity hit us like a wall.
Despite being in a new world, it felt like home.
Wade and I made it to our hotel in the pouring rain.
We woke up the next day and walked all around the city. It was the National Holiday and everyone was on the streets dancing and celebrating. We thought “This is a great city.”
Within 72 hours, the debauchery began.
What I didn’t know about Panama was that YOU CAN PARTY LIKE A LEGEND 7 DAYS A WEEK.
Women, booze, drugs and overall debauchery became my life. I didn’t care about business or much of anything else really. There was enough money coming in from the previous marketing efforts to finance the party.
After 8 months, Wade had enough and moved back to Canada.
I continued. I went deeper, harder… faster.
I had multiple serious girlfriends in different countries. I would fly for a month to Japan three times a year to see my girlfriend and then fly back home and then fly to Canada. I was spending money like it was going out of style. I thought I was a legend.
I did this for several years.
My bad habits quickly escalated into full force destructive addictions. My demons took over my life.
I destroyed friendships, businesses and most of my life.
I was completely out of control for 5 LONG YEARS.
My Darkest Moment
It all came crashing down on February 7, 2009.
I was at a friend’s party in Boquete high on a cocktail of mixtures that included ecstasy, San Pedro and weed.
Without going into details, I truly crossed some lines that night.
I was woken up at 5 am by the wife of the house.
She proceeded to rip me apart and show me WHO I REALLY WAS.
The culmination of ALL THE PAIN I HAD CAUSED PEOPLE CAME CRASHING DOWN ON ME.
I had never felt so low in my life. I was filled with guilt, shame and self-loathing. It was the lowest point in my life. I had hit bottom and I didn’t want to dig any further.
It was also the turning point.
