Julie began drinking as a teenager, but it eventually took over her life. She almost lost her life in a car wreck but continued to drink. Learn what led to her recovery.
God and this place (The Lovelady Center) have totally changed my life. I got saved when I was younger and just started going in the wrong direction. I have always drunk since I was a teenager. Then drinking started taking me down horrible roads. I met a man whom I was engaged to who shot cocaine. So drinking lowered my inhibition and I tried it too. So I would pray that God would bring me out everything and I had a car wreck and was in a coma for three months. They didn’t know if I would even make it, but the lord brought me out of it and I still continued to drink. This caused me to lose everything. I knew I needed help so I came to the Lovelady Center and it has taught me what it is like to be a child of God. It also has taught me how to do it without having to rely on any substance what-so-ever. I never knew how to do that before, but this place has showed me how to put God first in everything I do. Something I never did or didn’t even know how to. I didn’t have the will or want to before. However that’s all I want now is to put Christ first and to live my life for him not for me. I have been clean and sober now for about two years.
