    Best Thing I Ever Did: Long Term Treatment

     I was a part-time crack addict years back.  Was able to hold down a job, 'cause I was a weekend warrior.  But, like clock work, once a month, I'd have these cravings that were so overwhelming--it was like God was ordering me to go get some crack!  I would become...
