Breaking free from drug addiction

By the end of 2009, I experienced the downtime in my life. At that time, my wife and I nearly had a breakdown in our marriage. I was unreasonably dismissed by my boss at work. My finance was in deep trouble. All the bad things seemed to happen all at once, and I was in the deepest valley of life. To evade from the reality, I chose to take drugs. I went to different idol’s temples hoping to seek help and comfort for my career and my soul but I still felt depressed and peaceless.

During the time when I felt completely hopeless, God began to lead me in knowing Him. One day, a friend introduced me to church. At first, I just wanted to go there to spend time. When the service was over, Pastor Jimmy came to talk with me. I told him that I felt lost in life. Then, he asked a group of brothers to pray for me; I was very touched. After that, I continued to pray and seek God. I felt that God was shining over me. I know that He loves the sinners and He will help those who came to seek after Him.

During an occassion, when I was dining with friends, a friend asked if I would want some drugs. I replied “no”! As I was driving home, I was wondering why I did not take his offer. If it was the “old-me”, I would definitely take it. By then, I knew that God had completely transformed me. After returning home, I broke and threw away all the drug paraphernalia. Praise the Lord who helps me to break free from drug addiction!
