well let's see at age 8 i began dealing weed & smoking it - approx 1969. At age 9 in 1970 i sold weed for lunch until 1979 started snorting cocaine. By 1985 i was smoking it & spending EVERY dime i could get my hands on. In 1998 i had spent everything i had.
Then i sought help. By the end of 1998 i was clean for the first time in my life. And i asked GOD to keep me that way. Now here in 2013 i have seen many people get clean for a time and then go back. Conclusion: one has to be done in their heart to get and stay clean. i THANK god
