Hello my name is Doug I was a drug addict for almost 40 years. I grew up in the rough part of a large city where you had two choices you either drank or did drugs. I chose drugs because my father died of alchol poisoning. Which was stupid, but that was the way it was. I grew up in the drug culture and today the kids are doing the same thing. I would love to get a hold of every one of them and shake them by the knap of the kneck and say "NO" don't do it! I could tell them all the bad things that are going to happen to them, but like me most of them would'nt believe that it will happen to them, but it will. For those of you who don't know you don't get addicted from the first, second of third shot, you have to work at it and I worked at it for many years. And there are many kids out there today that are working at it. What they don't know is that until they come to the Lord Jesus they will never be able to quit. They have to get right with God, or they may overdose and die like I did, but Jesus may not bring them back like he did me. And I pray to God that everyone of them will get there act together and come to the Lord before this happens to them.

Thats right, I was dead for 10 1/2 minutes. The doctors pronouced me dead and they were taking me to the morgue in an ambulance when Jesus brought me back to life. While I was dead I remember talking to Jesus about my situation during the conversation he asked me "Now that you are dead what are going to do", I answered serve you ? And he replied "right answer" and the next thing I knew I was back in my body. It was a dyamite experience, but I hope nobody else has to do that. It's something you will never forget it's the neatest thing that's ever happened to me. My whole life has been completly turned around becuase of this encounter. It's the most wonderful life I have ever had. When he brought me back to life the desire for drugs was totaly gone. I have not had the desire to do heroin, or any other drug for almost two years now. I am attending a church where Jesus is real, people are healed of every type of sickness, disease and heart ache. The Lord told me he would heal me little, by little and I am having less and less physical problems. All the tracts are gone my heart is better and the only thing I have wrong with me now is a lung problem that is getting better everyday. My liver and my kidneys should be gone from all the years of doing drugs, but they are not.

Everything I own, or posses now belongs to the Lord and sometimes I fall and sometimes I don't, but it is only because I am still human and I am still trying to fight, but basically if you do not let Jesus do it for you it's not going to get done right. Jesus is the key to your freedom from what ever has you bound.

ISAIAH 53:5-6 "But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And the Lord has laid on Him the inquity of us all."

1JOHN 3:7 - "Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as he is righteous. He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil."

John 8:34 "Jesus answered them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed".

ACTS 10:38 "how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.

ACTS 10:42 "And he commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify that it is He who was ordained by God to be Judge of the living and the dead."
