My Purpose

I've thought long and hard about starting this blog. The substance of this blog will be considered very controversial. Some may find it offensive. There is a slim chance I may actually damage relationships as a result. It's a risk I'm willing to take because what I will be journaling and publishing is very near and dear to my heart. The journey I have traveled over the last three years has a purpose. I've known it from day one, but it hasn't been until recently that the purpose was made manifest to me.

I hope that you, my reader, will read what I write with the understanding that it all stems from my own precious and personal experience, and that I write these things with the best of intentions. It is not my intent to belittle anyone or criticize. It is my intent to enlighten. I hope that through my own experience you will gain a greater knowledge of what I have been through and how I have risen above it. I truly believe that the Lord gave me this experience so others can learn from it. Have fun reading and get ready for a wild ride.

I will try to post something daily, but sometimes (as often happens in life) it could get pushed to the back burner and a weekly post will be all I can manage. But I hope you will check back often to see what this ex-junkie has to talk about.

My journey over these years is long and it will be written in "episodes", much like a TV drama. Prepare to read it in bits and pieces, not all at once because I do not have time to sit down and write it all in one sitting. Along the way I will post tips and advice for coping and such things that I have found to be helpful. With each episode I will pick up right where I left off before. Enjoy!

I bet this will be a therapeutic thing to do. I will be very interested, because though you have referred to it, I never heard the whole story either. I gather from the title that it has been a long hard journey! I am very interested, and hopefully it will help those of us who read your blog.
