Have you ever snorted so much cocaine that your nose bled? And been in debt to the supplier for several thousand dollars, promising him the moon so he would "front" you a little more to try to sell it for his money? Have you ever been on your hands and knees looking at every white speck on the floor, hoping that it would turn out to be a rock that could be put into a crack pipe and smoked?
I have. It was horrible. I feel extremely privileged to have lived to tell about it. God isn't finished with us, yet.
Now in our forties, drugs dominated our entire adult lives. Alcohol, pot, cocaine, crystal meth, diet pills, crack cocaine, and narcotic painkillers. Law enforcement finally stepped in last year and put a stop to it. My husband and daughter are both full-time college students, now! (Praise God!) We are living with my husband's parents while he finishes his Associate of Science degree, so he can become a certified medical laboratory technician. For the very first time in my life, I feel cautiously optimistic.
God is good. Please continue to keep us in your prayers.
