It’s never too late.
#8 Drug Addiction
Drug Addiction is a terrible thing that exists in our society. It tears families apart, ruins countless lives but still, it hasn’t stopped from claiming millions of more lives every year. This monster called ‘drug addiction’ creeps up on you under the disguise of a friend and soon we are nothing but a slave to it. And slave we are until death or unless saved.
No matter how dire or hopeless a situation might be, as long as there is the will to live, there is hope.
Recently a woman from Glendale, Arizona shared her story about meth and heroin addiction. How she overcame it and where she is now. It is an inspriational story to be read without fail.
#6 Dejah Hall
Dejah was addicted to painkillers by the time she was 17. And by the time she was 20, she was a full-blown drug addict. And she truly believed she was okay with what she had become.
Things became worse after that!
Dejah says she eventually moved on from painkillers to dangerous stuff like heroin and methamphetamine. Looking back at the person she was back then, Dejah says she was a monster back then. She would have done anything to keep her addiction going.
Everything changed for Dejah when she visited her grandfater on his birthday.
“My grandfather was sitting in his wheelchair, and he looked at me and said, ‘You’re hurting me, Dejah,'” she recalled.
“I went to the bathroom, and I looked at myself and I really looked at who I had become. This disgusting person who needed to continue to stick these drugs in their veins because I couldn’t function,” she said
Her Grandfather died two weeks later after she promised him she would come clean and when she got arrested around the same time on felony drug warrants, Dejah decided it was time to stop. Even tough there was no dearth of drugs in jail, she made a choice not to touch them.
Now, 4 years later since she quit her addiction, Dejah shares her story with the world. She has learned to live again and is a caring mother. Her message on facebook has gone viral with her sharing pictures of what she was before and what she is now.
Dejah has a message for every addict out there- “Never give up on yourself. Forgiveness of ourselves is essential in our recovery process.”
Dejah hopes to become a miniter to help others overcome their addiction as well.
