Marijuana seemed exciting and fun at first, but once I got into it more heavily, it did a great deal of damage in my life. Cannabis is a gateway drug to harder drugs without a doubt. ~ Bill Greguska
Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Do Not Be Fooled. Marijuana Is Not Safe!
Marijuana and beer (drugs and drinking problem) at first was exciting and totally captured my attention, but after a short while, I could see that I was not only doing something I knew was wrong, but I had to start lying to others like my parents, to cover my tracks and the integrity that I did had begun to leave me. The devil was getting the better of me, and things seemed to snowball overtime for the worst!
Matthew 26:41 Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak.
Is the cost of being considered one of the guys worth it? I partied like I played basketball—with all my heart. I tried to outdo others. Seeking recognition and attention are unyielding motivators in my life.
With the natural personality that I had and when I added drinking and drugs to it, I was creating a monster that was getting more and more out of control. There were many times that I would drink as much as I could to be one of the guys and belong (belong to what, and for what reason, I do not know?).
Former Drug Addict Says That Marijuana Is A Gateway Drug!
People that make radical choices in their life are not necessarily “bad” people. Instead, they most likely if they are anything like me, they are people with low self-esteem or have a strong desire for attention, or possibly do not care what others think and love to be different.
My basketball testimony went from one extreme to another, but thankfully the Lord kept me near to him, and in time, my life was redeemed from the locusts that eat it away. I praise God for his love and faithfulness in my life!
I look back now and can see how much I lost out of because of my drinking problem! I might have had some so-called fun, but looking back, it was not worth it to me at all to get involved with drugs and alcohol like I did. Kids nowadays cannot see past the present to understand what they are potentially heading into when they choose to become one of the guys.
Proverbs 23:31 Do not gaze at wine when it is red when it sparkles in the cup when it goes down smoothly. In the end, it bites like a snake and poisons like a viper!
How important is it to guard our eyes to what we watch and our ears to what we hear? I liked the taste and feeling I used to get from marijuana, I could smoke it all day if I had the chance, and many days I did just that.
I was into myself and trying to find ways to make myself feel good—I thought it would make me happy. So far that I even went to get a marijuana leaf tattoo (and twenty other tattoos) on my left arm to be radically different and gain attention. I was young and foolish, and I did not want to be told that I could not do what I wanted.
Thank God, my boss, when I worked at Faith Indeed, offered to have my tattoos removed for free. I priced them before that time, and I found out they cost $400 per operation, and it turned out that I had 13 surgeries. My boss Bill was very good to me and very generous to me; it was a blessing from God!
I just wanted to fit in and be accepted, and marijuana and alcohol were the common denominators that were my so-called “ticket in.” Looking back at the foolishness I put myself and family through, sure was a waste of time and life.
