Unfortunately he is also a grown man and needs to admit he has a problem. Get this: NO ONE CAN HELP SOMEONE "GET STRAIGHT" if they do not want TO BE STRAIGHT. David is like a little brother to me and I think the world of him, but he has a monkey on his back and until HE tires of feeding and taking care of it, forget it. Tammy has tried for years and if his kids can't motivate his loyalty and sobriety, how can anyone else?

Unfortunately, Shadow, You are right. I was pretty much on the same path. For me it took seeing what it was doing to someone I loved to straighten me out. Drug free since july 1990, alcohol free since 2002 and cigarette free since 2006. It aint easy and if you don't want it for yourself or for someone you love you can't do it. Well atleast I couldn't. David and Tommy Wayne were always like brother to me. Please give him all the support and Prayers you can.

There are sources of help. The people at our school based health centers have much info about these sources.Ernest prayer can help too!

I heard a prayer request from his sister along the same line for Sean Wilder; he and David were buddies and went to school together- both lovable pests!

Boy, I wasn't perfect- tried alot and done some bad things. I wish I could go back in time, but I can't. Fortunately, I quit all that nonsense early- in my early twenties, but "still live with every day with the consequences of my actions" back then.

No one can make anyone straighten up. These people have to want to stop being selfish and hurting others and help themselves. I understand addiction, but people can overcome it... it's a day to day struggle. It starts with the first day.

Has anyone actually tried to get David into rehab?

I wonder if some honest action might help him out; it seems to me that doing something is better than sitting back, watching, and praying.

yes they had him in rehab and he got kicked out and they had another place and he would not go he dont need help he dont have a PROBLEM UNDERSTAND so praying is all people can do until he wants help until he knows he NEEDS help maybe before its to late his mother has done everything she can here lately and he just want help his self if she would stop giving him money it would make it harder for him to do some of the things he does but she thinks its helping him he has no job so she feels sorry for him thats what mothers do you know hopefully one day he will realize what hes doing to the people that loves him and to his self most of all dont he know amy jamie are just using him for what they can get god help him is all i can say god help him.pray for him everybody who can

I don't know this person but it seems to me that you Bible believing/Bible thumping Christians should find better things to do than to gossip publicly about another person in your community. That is one of the things that truly sickens me about your version of faith. You just sit around putting someone in need down rather than getting off your asses and helping him.

Christianity... what a joke!

You think this is a "Christianity" problem ? For those who don't know David, he is a man who had everything, a nice family, a good home, a great job and a winning personality. A "loveable pest" is how someone on here put it. His life has been controlled and is being destroyed by drugs and EVERYONE has tried to stop the downward spiral without success. Nobody on Topix has trashed David and all who care for him have run out of options to help him BECAUSE he refuses to help himself. Those of us who are believers, being unable to reach him, ARE doing something. We are remembering him in our prayers in the faith that God might intercede where we have failed. Prayers are sometimes answered. Now go ahead and bash me, I can take it !!!!!

OM, I am a christian and I want to apoligize for the person or persons who has so offended you at some point in your life. It must have been a tragic experience to cause you to be sooo bitter toward christians. God loves you!!!
