#32 Drug Free Mindset Show with David Montez of Modesto

Today we are excited to have David as our guest.

When was the first time you experienced drinking or drugs?

He started drinking as a freshmen in high school skipping classes and coming back to class drunk and high from Marijuana his age was about 14or 15

What became your drug of choice?

Alcohol became his drug of choice.

What or who influenced you to start doing drugs?

Friends at school would tell him this is what you need to be doing to be popular.

What are some of the things you were doing while you were using and in Gangs?

Well at the age of 16 he was fighting guys that were like in their 20s for his gang. The things that attracted him to this life style was fast money girls and power. When he was high it kind of made him feel invincible.

What was the price of you selling drugs and being in a gang? With your friends, your family, other relationships.

Being a young boy his father would try to rip all his clothes so he would stay away from that life. He didn’t care if he hurt his family he wanted to live that fast life.

What were some of the worst things you did as a gang member?

A friend of his had just got out of jail and he wanted to get the man that put him in there, they were in a car chase and he had to run but they got pulled over and they found the gun. Since his friend just got out of jail David took the blame and went to prison,

When was the point when you knew you needed to change?

When he was sitting that prison cell looking at 25 to life the judge and the DA were saying he was a mentis to this society. He said a prayer to God that if he would take him out of this mess he got himself in to that h would serve him they ended up changing his sentence.

Now that you are out of the gangs and you are serving the Lord what words of encouragement do you have for someone?

Think about what you are doing before you pick up that gun or bat. In the beginning it might be fun and game but it just keeps getting worse. If you have children make that change for them. Give God a chance like he did

Once someone is out of a recovery what steps do you believe that someone will always need to do, to stay clean?

He won’t ever stop that is part of the good fight of faith. The enemy is one big liar and he wants to take you and your family out the game of life.

I would like to thank you for taking the time, to give us this interview. I’m sure, the people who listen to it, will be inspired and you have given them a bit of encouragement.
