Lost and Found

This song is was written in a cheap hotel room after smoking crack for days - months and years. I could write a novel about the pain of addiction that would make the average person want to commit suicide. I sit here now able to tell you that because certain people in my life refused to give up on me - I lived to see another day. Now I am living everyday without drugs. I have one more song that followed up this song - I would love to share it with anyone interested. It is a bit more positive and you can hear the hope starting to root in my soul.

About the song - THIS IS WHERE ADDICTION BROUGHT ME - I actually met my soul in that hotel room that night. Listen and tell me - do you relate?

Stay strong - you can do it - it takes WORK - lots of it.

Just use a bland Facebook profile, no picture, nothing.

Solomon, Thank you so much for writing this post. I work in internet marketing and consequently pay a far bit of attention to my own internet reputation but I find it frightening how little people understand the damage that posting personal information to sites like Facebook can do not just to your social life but to your career. It has become common practice for companies to research potential employees on social networking sites and yet some how most of us our still obliviously to the fact that photos from last Saturday's party might mean getting passed up for a job offer in the future. I fear that today's teenagers will pay the price for our collective naivete particularly those currently in college who are graduating in one of the worst economies we have seen in decades. If any teens are reading this post - Good Luck!

It made me immediately start crying because I can remember those days, weeks and yes, years, of addiction. They were so painful, so very lonely and painful. I look back now and am surprised I am not institutionalized with PTSD. Fortunately I now have GOD in my heart to help the healing but boy can I relate. Great song and thank you for the great cry. One more step closer to healing. :)
