I always thought the saying once a junkie always a junkie, was true. God knows I was a full on heroin addict for 25 years.
I tried everything to give it up, rehab, moving, stopping, the whole lot. But nothing worked.
So I thought, well if this is my life then I'm going to make some money out of this.
That's when I got involved with the mafia, scoring ounces of heroin over 2 years, we made so much money we got a business going to launder the money through.
Then I got busted, in 1992, I was sentenced to 6 years jail. I know what your thinking, he must have stopped. Wrong, because I took the rap ( took the blame ) my partner was out there, business as usual, in fact we had people who worked for the jail, bringing my drugs in for me.
Then one day a murderer who is a Christian said. If you want to give up the heroin, say this prayer. So to shut him up I said the sinners prayer.

My God what have you done to me, in an instant God came into me and made me a new person, in a second I knew everything in the bible was real, even though I've never read it, I knew Jesus was the son of God and was real. I knew creation was real not evolution.
I pulled out the heroin in my pocket and didn't want it anymore, I couldn't believe it, God took the desire completely away. That was 18 years ago and myself and my beautiful wife have been Jesus freaks ever since.
Thanks for reading this there is more to come, God bless you.

This is BEA~UTI~FUL hearing how God works in our every day lives, real honest stories being shared, you never who is reading these threads,i have seen some lovely tales of people bringing the glory to God in here through their honesty, God brings things out of the dark so we can be shinning lights to those who are weak, those who are seeking truth, tales like this will help those who are afraid and feeling so bad that they think they should hide alone with their secrets, lets Praise the Lord our God, for He is good \o/...xox...

it wasn't a prayer, 'repeated words' that brought you out of such a terrible bondage,
it was the fact that Jesus Christ had made you His own, long before you said a few words...

My friend smoked black tar...she quit harder, but still a miracle! Praise God for both of you! Read DAvid Wilkerson's books. I'm sorry, I'm struggling with the name...it's about the beginnings of Teen Challenge. One of the people he brought to salvation "niki" wrote Run, Baby Run. Forgot I was on internet...The Cross & the Switchblade. Second thought, maybe you won't want to. Read Psalms, proverbs, JOhn, Mark... : ). Be blessed a million times over - student

don't you see it Hat, why you are here? right now, at this particular time of your life?

your story is so redundant, many here can see that this is ALL about Jesus setting you up,
and you seeing what you are doing in and with your life...

we Love you!
