On the third day of my withdrawal the symptoms started to show. Surrounded by a group of people, which believed that they could help me to overcome my 20 years of heroin and methadone addiction, I was sitting in the nice, bright and clean flat of my Christian friends. Like many other addicts I had tried countless times to break off. I had tried heroin substitutes like codeine and methadone but through these I became hooked even more. I had tried scores of times to undergo a complete withdrawal, five times under medical observation in different hospitals. Nothing could keep me away from drugs in the long run. When my GP eventually classified me a hopeless case, I understood that I would die as a drug addict like many of my friends before me...

When I was a kid I believed in God, but I didn't understand the Bible. At the age of about eleven I turned away from this belief, to a world of drugs and partying. But nothing seemed to be able to fill the emptiness inside of me. Hence I decided that it would be better to have a short life with drugs, instead of a long life without them until I met George...

I also tried different drugs like ecstasy, speed, opium and later crack and heroin, and found these pleasurable, but they can’t be compared to psychedelic drugs. I discovered that during LSD trips, if I called out the name of a long-dead guru, I fell into a deeper and much more powerful trance. However, somehow I had opened a door that I couldn’t close anymore...  Read more about Saved and Set Free from Drugs and Occultism!

At the age of 12 I was already drinking hard alcohol (rum), and one year later I started to smoke cannabis. This totally messed up my schoolwork, as I was smoking it almost every day. I ended up with a criminal record at 16, and without any education, I was homeless and always in trouble...  Read more about Saved from Evil Spirits and Drugs

A feeling of paranoia had come into my life and had powerfully taken possession of my whole being. I knew that I couldn’t take any drugs any more as I was already close to insanity and further attempts of drug consumption had re-triggered symptoms of the horror trip of that night.  At one point I even thought about suicide, but I had this one hope, somehow I knew that Jesus could help me in all this...   Read more about Freed from the Occult!

I experimented with various uppers (amphetamines), downers (tranquillisers), trips (L.S.D. and “magic mushrooms”), opium, and cocaine. I continued in this way for the next ten years, with cannabis as my first love. I did notice my short-term memory getting confused, and my speech and handwriting getting sloppy, but was convinced that I did not have a drug problem. One day a friend asked me if I had ever heard of Jesus Christ...  Read more about Freed and Healed to Start Again

As long as I was with my friends I thought what I was doing was okay. However, sometimes after coming home from a party in the early hours of the morning, really “stoned”, I looked into the mirror and asked myself, “Do I really know myself, do I really feel happy?” My honest answer was, “NO”. So I went to bed very quickly to try and forget everything...   Read more about Saved from a Life of Spiritual Emptiness and Drugs!

Between the ages of 16 and 20 I simply took every drug I could get hold of: marijuana, speed, cocaine and LSD. I often took too much and did not know what reality was any more, or where the world of delusion and fantasy started. I often tried to get away from using drugs, but the people I mixed with, and the fear of facing reality, pulled me back into the drug scene. I saw no way out...  Read more about Saved from a Life of Drugs!

I became more and more depressed, closing up and having nobody I could really talk to. Thoughts about suicide often came to mind including ideas about how to do it, fuelled somewhat through the influence of certain music groups and singers that I regularly listened to. The turning point of my life was to come during my duty in the army at the age of 20... Read more about Saved from Depression, Alcoholism and Suicidal Thoughts!!

I was living a life of pure selfishness, taking advantage of everyone around me and using them for drugs or sex. Through my lifestyle I destroyed any hope of gaining a good job and fulfilling my many responsibilities, including being a mother to my son. I often lied and cheated, stole and played with many hearts to satisfy my desires...  Read more about From Panhandling to Plenty

I was smoking cannabis on a daily basis and if I had to go without, I suffered from stress and tension, becoming easily upset. I was also using other drugs such as speed, ecstasy, acid and magic mushrooms. My life reached an all time low...  Read more about Joy Instead of Drugs!

In my early twenties God really showed me his power. I remember sitting in my parents’ living room and it was as if God was physically touching me on the top of my head. I got up not wanting my parents to notice anything going on. I walked down the road and got on a bus. I was laughing – I’d never laughed before and I was crying at the same time. God’s power started to go through me, right through my whole body, down my arms, right through into the tips of my fingers and toes. Looking back I know now that it was God’s cleansing blood going through me and I was bought from this world... Read more about Saved from Drink, Drugs, Depression and Self-Loathing
