The two key words . . . "Rescue Mission". Based on Christianity. The first time I became homeless, I use to go there every night, and believe you me, many of them were heavy drug users, heavy alcohol drinkers, and many with serious mental issues. For me that was a horrible experience to be surrounded by these individuals. I use to work, rent a home, pay my bills, and have a good social life.

EDNEY - If you are asking me how I am doing, I am doing better to say the least. I am fully retired, and I do have residency, and my social life is not what it use to be like, but I do go out on occasions with a few friends that I have met after I got my residency on April of 2015.

Gimli Good to hear it.
I have a friend who was addicted to meth who went through their program, has two beautiful kids
It takes a lot of will and fight to change, and a lot of heart to stay sober.
You have my admiration
