The Depth Of My Denial

When I heard that CR was coming to Boston, I approached the leader and offered to help out, after all, most of my friends were addicts and I dabbled in drug's myself.

When I heard that CR was coming to Boston, I approached the leader and offered to help out, after all, most of my friends were addicts and I dabbled in drug's myself. He looked at me with a strange grin and informed me " this ministry is for you" and suggested I read "Some Sat In Darkness". I read it and decided to dig deeper but I didn't believe I was an addict until I wrote my journal. Then and even now I can't believe how obvious it was that I was a stone cold Junkie.

I used anything I could get my hands on, any way I could from 8 to 36 year's old and the level of perverse depravity I reached included theft and lying, unmentionable sexual perversity, insane act's of dangerous foolishness and violence ranging from threat's to attempted and accessory to murder and this to friend's and family as well as acquaintances and unknown people.


...most of my friends were addicts and I dabbled in drug's myself
How could I not know ? Addiction, like Satan , is a liar and wants to have me by any means possible. But when GOD used CR to open my eyes to the truth of addiction, my gratitude soared and has strengthened me at a time in my life that if I didn't have the convictions and strength of character that I have today I don't know if I would be faithful or alive. But as it is I am handling this crisis fully convinced that GOD will finish the good work he has started in my family and continue to smile with gratitude every day.

He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. Psalms 40:2
