INSTANT ADSENSE EMPIRE
I have since writing this the first time more details of how I came to be in that hospital.I am not saying it was a suicide attempt,as I am sure it was not,but I do believe it was a cry for help.Only a few days before my fateful drugover dose I had watch a newsclip that had on it the man who sexually abused me when I was a young teenager.The scene I observed was of him being interviewed over a summer computer daycamp that he was part of.It involved him working with young teenage boys,and in fact in the short clip I saw he had his arms around a young man shoulders,a glint in his eyes that I knew so well.He is a former teacher/boyscout leader of mine,from the time when he taught in my small home town.If you have not already read of that abuse,please read Boy Scouts are Always Prepared from THE ROAD DOWN series.
I now believe that witnessing that scene sent me on a spiral of depression that led to my accidental overdosing,accidental as in I did not set out to kill myself the first few time I cranked,but may have become my goal after I was already high.The only reason I am here at all,the only reason why God was able to answer my pleas for help,is due to the fact that three members of Law Enforcement came knocking on my door with an arrest warrant,I had missed a court date for drug poession.When I never responded to their knocks they kicked in the door,after seeing drugs on the table in plain view from the window in the door(that's their story,and I will let them stick to it).
Initially only two entered,the third staying in the prescribed fall back position in case I made a break for it behind the backs of the two inside.The two inside found what they called an obvious dead body,and it was only after another 3-4 minutes before the third entered,and started CPR and had the other two call an ambulance.I was way past the accepted point of time when one could be resuscitated normally.Another of God's Miracles.

u av a very captivating story. i felt like i woz u wen i read dis. i've just posted sumin on my blog about my crappy day, but it eems really trivial in comparison 2 ur story. u av really discouraged me from takin any drugs at all. i think tht u should advertise ur blog and let people all over da world read it as it guide young people like me from takin drugs. p.s i'm postin a link 2 u on my blog (hope u don't mind)
Nice one Doug, your humour gives you strength, you write your blogd with humour and I am glad you can laugh about life. Keep on writing baby, I love it.
Your rather rude calling to the Lord only proves we have a loving and merciful Father.I am glad you have found Him.You have a lot to be proud of,do not let your past overwhelm what can be a wonderful future.Follow the Lord's path,and take the roads He tells you to and you will be heavenly rewarded,you have suffered enough.
The Lord will give you the courage you need.Just ask and ye shall receive.Bless you Brother,your pain as been for a reason and that will become clear in time.
I feel you should continue your blog and keep talking about drugs.We lost our only son to drugs last year,perhaps if he had read somethinhg like this it would have helped him.I was at your other blogs,and I agree,it is God's will that you help others,and your writing will help.We live in Amsterdam,drug capitol of the world,so I don't know what ads appear to you,put I just got hooked up with a group here pushing for better treatment facilities and methods here.I hope it paid you well,even though they are a great service,it is nice to see you get some reward for all yur work.
Thank you for displaying the ads for Rehabilitation Centers,I gave them to my husband and he is going to try to quit drinking.Thank you again Sir,your brave words have been a Blessing,I am so glad you posted to our group.
each and every blog of yours keeps me in such awe at the strenght you have. and each time i'm moved. Thank you doug for your inspiration. (i know i said that many times to you but it's so true).

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison, and you came to visit me . . . I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me” (Matthew 25:35-36, 40).
