I forgot to wish you a successful recovery. You say you're recovering, I say I'm recovered. Drug programs teach that once an addict always an addict. The Bible teaches that those who the Son have set free are free indeed. Who are you going to believe? Stay in touch.

There IS nothing positive about being a crackhead. There IS something positive about Jesus. It's not about us, it's about Him. Aunt Eula and Sister Jones are the main characters in the book. They are positive. They represent hope, faith, and above all, LOVE.
God Bless You!
