    I found the CURE for addiction and I have proof for this? claim. Click on my name and witness Powerful Stories of Freedom. I? personally know and have witnessed over 100? addicts who have found True and Lasting FREEDOM after being enslaved by their? addictions for so long. I have been through many programs for my addiction, but have never found so? much Hope, Joy, Peace, and Love than I have in the program I am in now. And the people I know who have given their stories are experiencing the same!

    Go to school, join the military and get them to pay for your college. There are LOTS of ways out of the getto, but people just want to wallow in their failure and blame everyone but themselves for their failures.
    They say stupid things? like “it’s the polices’ fault I’m a junkie” no it’s YOUR FAULT.
