These testimonies are actual resposes to 4 questions that we asked the guys at our local

        Fayette  County  jail. I am not posting these to brag, no, I hope that you will see that our

  approach does have merrit and is helpful.


1. What was your first thought when you were told that I was going to be reading stories to

you about the journey of addiction.


*I really didn't know what to think, but what caught my attention was knowing that

 Mr. Charles was a true example of addiction and incarceration.

*I thought it would be a good idea.

*I had good thoughts cause the stories help bring out the inner feelings that you have

 stored up inside.
