Had this on my Heart and had to share. I was addicted to drugs for over 10 yr. and could not walk down the street without everyone Judging me. They see the addict and the very first thing they think is were all garbage and love the lifestyle and want to remain this way. But i've walked the road that many of you have and they have no idea whats in our Hearts. Don't ever let society take from you what God has in store for you. I know this is not the way that you want to live your life. Many of you are my good friends and every time I see one of you my Heart breaks for you. God has so much to offer you if you just trust in him. Many of you are concerned with the sickness that comes with the withdrawals. But im here to tell you if your Hearts sincere wanting a better life and turning your life over to God you WILL NOT GET SICK. I say this because after a long hard 10 yr. of addiction when I finally cryed out to God with a sincere Heart I never got sick the first time. He knows your Heart and the intentions of your Heart and he will be there to comfort you. Fellow addicts don't make the mistake I made for so many years of wanting to better my life. I listened to everybody else Judging me while they would say he will never change. I heard that so much I believed it myself and stopped trying for years. Till finally I overcame society by trusting Jesus. So this is for you family members that have somebody that has an addiciton STOP beating them up about it and Pray for them. Giving them some words of encouragement and hope and you will be surprised just what that may do. We want to know that there is hope for us, not to beat it in us that there is no hope. Trust in Jesus my friends and you will be surprised just how far that will take you...

James Chapter 1
12 Blessed [is] the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:

14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.

15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

That is a great post. Most people don't understand that. You don't want to live that lifestyle but being pill sick Is the worst feeling in the world. No one would be addicted if it were not for the withdrawals.

And telling addicts that they won't get sick if they trust in Jesus, tells them they have failed or can't be saved or cured if they start feeling sick. They will get sick, it will hurt like a MFer, but it will end, and its better than being sick every day of their life.

Not everyone is the same, every one faces different trials God does not move for everyone in the same way. So how do you know this person didn't get sick.

I quit many times and yes I was sick as a dog. The difference this time was I had said that Prayer and God heard my Prayer cause it was sincere and from the Heart. The moment I said that Prayer he took the sickness away. Theres a big difference in the Prayer of someone that has bad intentions and has little Faith. My Prayer was from the Heart with no bad intentions and my Faith in Jesus Christ set me free from the chains of addiction. So in some sense your right about the sickness. If you have no Faith in him to take the sickness away (how could he)? If your Hearts not right yes there will be sickness I know this like I said I quit many times without Jesus and I failed. But it only took one time with Jesus. He took it all away and gave me my Hearts desires so for that i'll continue to give all hope for those that are struggling with this. Get down on your knees cry out to him with a sincere Heart and (Believe) in him and see what he does for you...
