There was once a time when I was treading the waters of addiction and found myself about to go under. Even though I had all my friends and family trying to help, I still felt all alone. Being so close, watching me struggle, they could do nothing to help. The help I needed had to be from a complete stranger who had overcome a similar struggle. My life line was in the form of a phone number on the back of a sticky note. It had been in my possession for quite some time. I had run my life completely into the ground before I made a decision to pick up the phone and call the number. Making that call was the best decision I've ever made and probably saved my life.
