  1. What for some of us is just a casual quest for a "healthy glow" -- can for others be a dangerous, year-round compulsion that's contributing to rising skin cancer rates for young people. On this episode of True Life, you'll meet two sun seekers who are actually willing to put their lives on the line in search of the perfect tan.

    Billy doesn't feel attractive unless he looks dark brown and will do just about anything he can to maintain that color. Billy's father is worried that this obsession is putting his health at risk and has been begging Billy to tone it down. Will Billy finally decide to heed dad's warnings before his skin is irreparably damaged?

    When Alyssa walks out of a tanning salon she feels like a bronze bombshell. She's been using mom's credit card to pay for her $300 a month habit and could care less that it's putting a strain on her family's finances. Alyssa's mother is threatening to cut her off -- but will Alyssa forgo her daily dose of UV rays in order to keep the peace?

    They're getting a rush from the sun. Can they find happiness without getting burned? Find out next on True Life: I'm Addicted to Tanning.
