My “wake up call”: In my teen years I smoked weed, eventually someone introduced me to the “new” crave smoking crack cocaine. Oh gosh one toke was better than smoking 2 big ole joints I was immediately hooked, loved it. I smoked all weekend, going to work Monday or Tuesday was out of the question but I had to go Wed. as it was payday. Left work early off to go party some more called off work Thur. Fri. partied smoking continually right through the weekend Mon. and Tues. Showed up to work Wed. strung out craving another toke. Then I saw my paycheck; one day’s pay and my boss told me if I continued to miss work I would lose my job. To go home and think about it if I choose to keep my job to come back unstrung on Monday. My supplier refused to give me any more as I owed him over $200; I went through withdrawal for the next four days and begged God to help me promised him if he would let me live I would never touch crack again. That was probably one of the best things that could have happened to me. I have kept that promise otherwise God only knows where I would have ended up; dead or in jail for sure. Have you ever had a “wake up call”?
