At first, I started smoking weed, and I would also drink here and there. But when I got addicted to crystal meth, that is when everything became much worse. I felt as if I was trapped in a box. I felt the urge to go out and get the drug. I would steal everyday, go back home, do the drugs and just stay there. I was 8 months pregnant, and I could not stop. Because of that lifestyle, I ended up in jail and was facing the possibility of being in jail for 3 years.
My mom invited me to get help at the Universal Church. She had gone to the meetings and believed that there was a solution for my case. I came, and it was the best decision I ever made. It was not easy to overcome the addiction, something that I couldn’t do with my own strength. Here I learned that I don’t have to fight alone, that I can rely on God, that there are people who care and are willing to fight with me for my transformation. I found the roots of my problems, and by putting in practice what I learned during the meetings to overcome addictions, today I am free.
Today I am a happy mom; I like taking care of my kids. We can go out together now, they know that I’ll be there for them. I don’t need drugs to fulfill my heart, to keep me going every day, and I am very excited about my new career.
