Christopher Slater

I never believed that I was an addict until I woke up on the jailhouse floor from yet again, another blackout. My last incident was the culmination of years of systematically self-medicating with any and all chemicals that I could procure. My feelings throughout my life were if I was not hurting anyone while using my action was acceptable. Today I see that my actions and attitudes were far from acceptable in my eyes, my family’s eyes, and most importantly God’s eyes.

    I first used chemicals on my 15th  birthday; the very next day began my drift from the Lord and my family.

   Over the next 30 years, I became a “functioning” addict, who can make a direct connection to any and all failed relationships due to my chemical use and dependency. I have had many run-ins with law enforcement over my life, but never once when I was not in an altered state due to my ingesting chemicals.

   Throughout my career, I would sabotage myself believing that I was not worthy of success. I also believed that I was one of the finest fellows in the world. Yet I would drink for a day and become disgustingly and even dangerously anti-social. I had a positive genius for getting tight at exactly the wrong moment, particularly when some important decision had to be made or an appointment kept. I was often perfectly sensible and well-balanced concerning everything except chemicals, but in that respect, I was incredibly dishonest and selfish. I also would build up a bright outlook for my family and myself, and then pull the structure down on my head with a series of senseless sprees. I was the fellow who puzzled others with my lack of self-control. I was a real Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

   Today, being restored going on over five years I am continually learning how to process my attitudes and character defects in a healthy manner with like-minded men associated with the “A Fresh Start Sober Living”. This would not have been remotely possible unless God saw fit to intercede in my life by plucking me off of the streets, to save my life and the lives of those in the community from me. Today, I am becoming the man that I was always intended to be, a spiritually mature man who is a benefit instead of a burden on society.
