Out of the Ashes of Addiction by Steve Curington
Your Life Can and Will Change...If You Want It To. Every story is different, but you know what? We all end up in the same place: lonely, depressed, angry, frustrated, confused, suicidal, and EMPTY.
I don't know what made you come to this site - maybe a loved one, a friend, or you're just looking for some hope. No matter why you came, you're here for a reason. If my story isn't your story, it really doesn't matter. The only thing that matters is you can have the same freedom I have.
I can wake up and be glad the birds are singing and the sun is out - Can you?
I can spend my money on my family and children - Can you?
I can step out my door and not have to worry about going to jail - Can you?
I can play with my kids, imagine that? - Can you?
If you can't do these things or much more of anything else, keep an open mind as I tell you my story. I guarantee you can have what I have and much, much more.
Most people would say I had the perfect upbringing. My Christian family attended church nearly every Sunday and put me through Christian School. However, within two years after graduation, I was addicted to cocaine and alcohol.
Addiction stripped me of all my self-esteem, a prosperous career, and crippled me with debt. At the age of 28, I nearly died in a drunk driving accident. With a punctured lung that was quickly drowning me in my own blood, I cried out to God, "I don't want to die!" My memory is blank from that point on. A lifesaving call to 911 by an unknown person rescued me from death. Later on I would find out the reasons for God's divine intervention that night.
Three months later I stepped back into the church where I had worshipped as a child. That is when God began to change my life. The lessons I learned over the next six months are given in detail at the Reformers Unanimous meetings. At Reformers Unanimous you will be taught the different steps that lead to blessings from God. For me those blessings consist of a beautiful wife I met in church, our precious children, a debt free life style, and an executive position in the petroleum industry.
Oh, I almost forgot to tell you... the unknown person who saved my life by calling 911 nearly two years earlier... miraculously ended up to be my future mother-in-law. Praise God!
