Another Addict Wins Over Addiction!!!


This is me five years ago being booked into Lee County jail and me today. I had given up and no matter what I did I couldn’t stop using! I had a beautiful family and home. As much as I loved them I still could not stop! By the time I made it to jail this time my addiction was out of control and I was dying!

I had been around the rooms but only to satisfy my probation. But if I could remember anything they told me it was “let go and let God”. So I did! I surrendered and gave up trying to do it alone. I went through some of the worst withdraws one could go through! Even had to be admitted to the hospital for 10 days due to seizures.

This was not easy but I prayed and with the help of the program I got better! Today I am the mother and woman I always wanted to be but just couldn’t! I have three beautiful girls 16, 9 and 8 months. It is still beyond me that I got to live when I was so sure I would die!

So anyone that feels there is no way out I promise you there is! Don’t never hesitate to reach out and ask for help! I am a miracle and I am here because I stopped trying to do this on my own and let people who have been where I was show me the way. God bless 🙂


We are here to share our experience with drug addiction how it affects both the addict and their families along with their friends. Bringing awareness about the war on drugs an how it has failed in many ways. You are welcome to comment even if you might disagree with the post, we here are a free speech zone. We will post it as long it's constructive towards solutions rather then being to harsh and judgmental causing it to be part of the problem.
