My name is Wayne and I am an addict. I’m 33 years old and have been in active addiction for over 20 years. This disease has taken many friends but has spared me and my family. So today I want to bring a message of hope to those that are still sick and suffering from addiction. There is a better way of life, through my God of my understanding and fellow addicts I meet in the rooms of NA and AA. I have remained sober, and not only sober but today I live a happy life thanks to the help of Noah's House. By no means is my life perfect but recovery isn't about perfection, it's about progression. I don’t wake up sick anymore wondering where my next fix is coming from or who am I going to rob or steal from. My life is better now. I wake up and ask myself what I am going to do today for myself that I didn’t do yesterday and how can I help my fellow brothers and sisters. That's to give back what was so freely given to me - the message of hope.
