"Drugs and Alcoholic Drinks Drove Me to the Point..."
Addicted to drugs, José lost everything he had to feed his addiction until he ended up becoming a beggar.
“Drugs and alcoholic drinks drove me to the point that I no longer have a family. Due to all these problems, I started to live in a tent by the sea.
Before giving in to addictions, I had an excellent job in a hotel but I started to consume a lot of drugs so much so that I no longer had the same disposition to work. My salary was no longer enough to pay the rent because all I received was to spend on addiction. Due to the lack of money to pay the rent, I was evicted and as a result of everything that was happening to me I lost my job.
The solution was to live on the streets. I got some jobs and my salary went directly to drugs because it was my weakness. I had been in that situation for more than five years with no hope of being able to rebuild my life, fulfill my dreams and be happy.
So I came to the Universal Church in a desperate state. In the church, they presented me with the solution for my life and I didn’t think twice. I made the chains of prayer and put all my strength, the faith I learned on the Altar. I was tired of being weak.
From the moment I put into practice the teachings I received, I gained the strength to fight and got rid of addictions. I started my own business, I regained people’s trust again. I got married, I am very happy because, not only am I married but I live in a nice house.
