Hope for Addicts by Keith Angelin
I know what it’s like to die from an overdose of drugs and alcohol. If there is hope for me, there is hope for you too. Spend a few moments reading this short letter. Then if you still believe you are so different from me, toss it in the trash. But I don’t think you will.
Despite my best efforts I survived ten years of hardcore substance abuse. I was addicted to alcohol, cocaine, meth, GHB, Vicodin, Percodan, Percocet, Norco, ecstasy and marijuana. I spent over $100 a day, 7-days a week on drugs, and was the kind of alcoholic that would drink mouthwash when the booze ran out. Any of this familiar to you?
Everyone’s “bottom” is different. Mine was never the fear of dying. When I overdosed my heart rate rocketed to 160 beats per minute. On the verge of losing consciousness I drove to the hospital where I felt deeply ashamed admitting that I’d actually done this to myself. You can imagine my state of mind as I was taken by both arms and hustled into the ER.
Initially they pumped me full of medication, but hours later I was still in tachycardia. So they used a defibrillator to STOP my heart, HOPING it would restart on its own, normally. The last thing I remember was calling Mom in Florida to say good-bye and explain that my two dogs now belonged to her.
What have you lost to substance abuse? I lost my marriage, a beautiful home with a picket fence, all my savings, my career and professional reputation and virtually all my friends. I clearly remember the day I realized I had nowhere to sleep, $80 to my name, no credit cards or secret bank account and no one to rescue me. Though I went without showering and meals, I always managed to sell off some possession from storage so I could fuel my insatiable craving. My recovery was unquestionably a miracle because absolutely no one gave me a chance in hell of making it. Given what I just revealed, would you have??
Perhaps you also take too many risks and suffer greatly for it? YET YOU CANNOT STOP!

P.S . . . If you feel you are a lost cause or too far gone to change, I can relate. So did I. You see, I didn’t die just once. I overdosed on THREE separate occasions and relived the exact same nightmare each time! I thought my bottom was a cemetery plot, as you might. I learned that it doesn’t matter how far down you’ve fallen. There is hope for every one of us.
P.S.S. I even pay shipping. Go to http://www.interventionrx.com/
