I think the people next door to me are cooking up meth. I smelled a strong glue, chemical smell coming from their Building/home. Can anyone tell me what cooking meth/a meth lab smells like. Maybe one of the ex addicts can tell me. I believe the Police know and are protecting them.

Hello, I am from the Wichita Kansas area.Bill McLemore and his group came to our area. Though it was great I was unable to get my 18 year old son there. He is very strung out right know.I would love to know if and when the Steve Box ministries is going to hold another Meth rally. My email is trishfitness@cox.net.Keep praying
Bill, my name is Brandy and I am a recovering meth addict. i just moved back to Wichtia, Ks. from spending 8 years in Oklahoma City. I have been struggling for 6 years with this disease. My parents never gave up on me. Never give up. Meth is very hard to get off of and stay off of. It is a constant fight. There is a Crystal Meth Anonymous meeting every night of the week at the Parallax Program in Wichita on Hillside and Lincoln. There are a lot of younger people there. Have him come listen to what Meth did for us and where it got us. And see if he wants his life to turn out like ours did. He is still young and can change his life before it's too late. I hope that was somewhat helpful.

" have been struggling for 6 years with this disease."

Congratulations on your courage and successful struggle with your Meth addiction.

Don't you think it's a form of denial to call your addiction a disease instead of facing your willful mistake head on and deal with your problem honestly?

And how about our kids avoiding the responsibility of their actions by blaming a very bad personal decision on a "disease".

Meth is NOT a virus. It can't be cured with a shot in the arm. It's a willful destructive personal act.

Hi All

My name is Vince from U.K. England. Once I was hooked seriously on amphetamines and MDMA and became a chronic alcoholic in the bargain. My life was hell and once I got sober my life became more unbearable because I had yet to find the saving grace of Jesus Christ. Reaching out to Jesus put strength back into my life that today gives me confidence in my own ability to get through life no matter how many hurdles stand in my way. Lean on Jesus and Thou canst do anything.

I have not touched a drink or drug in thirteen years and owe everything I have to the Lord Our God Christ Jesus.

To anybody who is unsure or frightened ....call upon the Holy name Jesus and your cry will not go unheard ...of this I am certain.

God bless everybody:

Vince U.K.(email pencoke@beeb.net)

I am trying to fight the battle for myself and my boyfriend. I am doing it easily with no problem. By boyfriend on the other hand is thinking that replacing ICE with pain pills is okay. What the hell am I supposed to do now. I feel like I am riding his ass too hard. But I don't know how to act like I'm not still furious the same when I know he's using pain killers. AAAAHHHHHHH!!!! our life is such a mess. WHAT DO I DO??????? ANYONE!!!!!!!!!
Well Sarah, i don't know all the answers,but i too was once a major ice head,i have been clean for almost 2 years,and i too replaced ice with pain pills,at first i used ice to justify the use of pain killers (Hydros-Percocet) was all i ever did but none the less,i soon found myself locked into the restraints of a new addiction i popped the happy pills for about 8 months pretty heavy and was able to overcome that demon,i have now been clean of all substances for about 5 months now and doing well,i wish your husband the best of luck--- PIN--- "Power in numbers"

CJ I am sorry to hear that you feel that way but as a former used I say to you don't judge until you have walked in my shoes. I have stopped using and is going back to school to be a nurse. One day I might be taking care of you and you would want me to understand how you feel. Their are no words that I can ever say that would make you understand what I put myself through but I pray you never have to sit by the bed of a loved one and watch them die by their own hand.
