In Summer School, He told me the cocaine would help me reach my weight loss goals, so I bought some. Not only was I not hungry, but I was happy. This is what drugs do. They lie to you and make you “feel” happy, temporarily, until the withdraw hits and then you’re more miserable than ever.
A couple years later, a girlfriend of mine asked me if I had ever “Chased the Dragon”. She then pulled out some foil and stuck black tar on it – aka Heroin. She encouraged me to take a hit.
Some say, “once an addict always an addict.” But Jesus disagrees. Because, “Who the son sets free is free indeed.” – John 8:36 Which means you don't have to be a slave to addiction any longer.
