MY STORY

Testimonies

Hello my name is Antonio and I want to tell some of my testimony. I was born in a seemingly normal family. I say seemingly because, as you know looks are deceiving. My father was an alcoholic, and soon he died, in part because of his alcoholism. Despite this situation, my house was a normal house, and my mother always tried to give me the best and worked hard for it. I went to a private school, and liked sports, and did what any young person could do, but early in my life began to appear a certain defiance. I started hanging out with people older than myself, and got into a few dangerous environments. I liked rock music, and began to develop this philosophy in my life, you know "sex, drugs and rock & roll,". At first it was a game I thought I could control, but then it slowly enveloped me and all this controlled me. I became quickly addicted to alcohol and drugs. I started with alcohol on weekends, then joints of hashish, then pills and LSD, and finally cocaine and heroin. At the time I lost everything: family, work, good friends, girlfriend and my dignity. I was admitted to a psychiatrist, and arrested by police on several occasions. At 22 years old I attempted suicide, and the truth is that I roamed around, but thank God this I went wrong. One day I saw a person who had left the problem I had, and he looked happy. He told me about a Christian rehabilitation centre: RETO TO HOPE, called and helped me. Everything seemed to begin rare, and I didn't understand anything, but what I saw was changed lives, how I wondered? The answer was the love of God. I started to hear the gospel and recognised my need, and God began to change my life. Today is the day I can say I'm drug free and able to form a family and work today helping other people out of the problem of addiction.
