Hello, I'm Jerry from Tulsa,
Ok. I just want to say hello to Miss Debbie... so HELLO... I want to say thank you to all the people that come to this site to share their own experiences or to try to find an answer about addiction.
Miss Debbie I want to let you know that I'm taking charge of my life. I'm going into rehab at Harbor House in Ft. Smith Ak. Real soon. I've been accepted and I'm just waiting on a bed to open which is towards the end of the month. It's an all male inpatient treatment facility.
The opportunities that they offer are awesome. I AM going to take full advantage of this opportunity that has come to me. I pray that other addicts will follow suit.
I'm 44 now and not getting any younger or prettier lol. It's way past time for this. Miss Debbie I want to thank you and pat you on the back for being the awesome person you are with your kind words of encouragement and love. You truly are a blessing to me. You have helped me open my eyes.
I also want to give you credit for saving my life!!! If you can recall I was very suicidal a few years ago, and it was YOUR kind and loving heart that helped me realize that I am special and that my life is worth something other then a statistic and a win for addiction.
I'm here to say to everyone that reads my story that addiction has lost this one!!! I am not going to be just another statistic or another life lost to addiction... I have come very, very close to losing the most important things in my life...FAMILY... I am going to make addiction a statistic..
So chalk up a win for the recovering addict.. again Miss Debbie a great big HUG sent to you from me.. Maybe we could meet in person some day soon so I could give you a real hug but for now this will have to do. I will let you know right before I go to rehab and will definitely let you know when I'm back and I will share with you all the success to my beginning of a new life as a recovering addict!!!
I love you all and pray for each and every person on this page and those who haven't made it here yet!!!!
