I am now going after God with all of my heart. I started doing drugs when i was 14 years old. at the age of 16 i got arrested for grand theft auto and car jacking. for a young man from the suburbs of pensacola, florida, this was all very out of the ordinary. i got sent to a juvinile correctional facility and ended up staying there for two years. when i got out i moved up to charleston, south carolina to work with my step father. i had an awesome job and was doing really well... for about a month. i ended getting back into the rave scene, so it did not take me long to start getting high again. within six weeks of being out of jail i chose to go out on the streets. i have traveled the streets from one coast to the next and back again. the whole time i was addicted to shooting up. mostly crystal meth, but i went through stages with heroin as well. i came back to pensacola to see an old friend and ended meeting who is now my amazing wife (that was three years ago). we have battled addictions the whole time, and six months ago we got arrested at the airport with 7.5 grams of cocaine, 19.5 grams or pot, 20 mg of methadone, 9 syringes, and two pipes. only by the grace of god did we not go to prison. we are now both in a faith based program called the Harvest Vinyard Mission. i have been saved and no longer even entertain the thought of getting high. in 9 months we are going to move to tulsa, oklahoma so i can attend RHEMA Bible Training Center and heed the call of God on our lives. i give all the glory to God! Praise Him!
