Back from death
Hi, my name is Zack and i was delivered from drugs /alcohol over 28 yrs. ago. This is my story... I started drinking and smoking weed at the tender age of 13, i soon thereafter began to try every drug known to man. Alcohol had always been my drug of choice, i was a full blown alcoholic by the time i was 17. i drank to live and i lived to drank. in Feb. of 1983 i was in one of my drunken stupirs and had smoked some pcp. I went home and shot myself in the head. I was pronounced dead on the scene and was toe-tagged and was half way in the freezer, when the doctors upstairs tried to give my mother the death certificate to sign. As she began to cry out to to Lord and refuse to sign it, the nurse that was putting me in the freezer saw me move and ran to get the doctor. they told my mother they had no clue to what happened but i had a faint heartbeat so they rushed me up to ICU. i'm now operating 2 outreach ministries to help others. not only was i dead physically but the drugs and alcohol brought spiritual death as well. I pray that someone that reads this will be inspired not to give up hope. If God took the taste of drugs and alcohol out of my mouth, he'll do the same for you......may God bless and keep you
