I finally realized help was needed, after years of drug and alcohol abuse. In 1989 Odyssey House of Louisiana became home for me. The stay lasted fifteen months, after signing in my heart said within me, this will be my new beginning of the rest of my life.
Daniel wrote in the first chapter of his book, verse eight he purposed in his heart not to defile himself with the portions of the king meat. Days turned into weeks and weeks into months there was so much to learn. I never thought it possible for clean fun to be experienced without being intoxicated or drug induced. My stay was going well, on this day, I received a letter telling me fatherhood was in my future.
That’s another possibility which never occurred to me, because of my constant state of intoxication. Man, that really put things into perspective, its really a whole new game. This lady and I crossed paths on the job, a nursing home, I would come to work on the weekend and sleep in the closet, because of my hangover. we became friend and it turned into something more. She looked after me, days when I didn’t show up for work, she came looking for me. I finally decided to do something about myself, first be honest I needed help. My supervisor volunteered to drive me to New Orleans, so my journey could begin, and I was very thankful. My program time was completed, and I graduated. Deciding not to return into the environment which I came out of New Orleans became my home.
