How I feel about Drugs and Alcohol Day 20 of 30 Days of Truth...

Day 20 My view on drugs or alcohol. I have had some very serious up close and personal experiences with both drugs and alcohol. My 1st husband was an alcoholic and it led to his death by suicide. His suicide led to both of our children becoming addicted to some very bad drugs. There was a time in my life when I was looking in mall bathrooms and banging on the doors of drug dealers looking for my son. There were times I prayed for him to be arrested. I worked closely with the Strike Force to catch him in the act, when it finally happened it was so heartbreaking. He felt betrayed, I felt relieved. He was sentenced to Drug Court and it saved his life. When my daughter started her adventure with drugs she knew enough from seeing what her brother had been through that she needed help. I am so thankful she came to me and asked me to get her help. Today both of my kids are amazing, they are amazing parents, amazing workers and most important amazing members of society.

Until later,
Hugs,
Shelly
