#37 Drug Free Mindset Show with Raymond Villalovos of Modesto

Today we are excited to have Raymond Villalovos from Modesto

When was the first time you experienced drinking or drugs?

About 15 years old he started smoking marijuana along with cigarettes and alcohol. He also did pills in his twenties like black beauties, whites, reds, cocaine, crank, and PCP.

What became your drug of choice?

Heroin addict for the past 30 years

What or who influenced you to start doing drugs?

It was the environment he was in, wanting to fit in with the wrong crowd.

Did the drugs ever make you paranoid or cause you to hallucinate?

When he would do crank which is in same family as today meth

Did you ever overdose?

Yes, numerous times, when he would mix cocaine which is an upper and heroin which is a downer. He would intentionally do more than he could handle and at the age of 29 he had a heart attack. He has 3 or 4 more heart attacks since then and he now has blocked arteries they can’t unblock.

Can you tell our listeners what was some of thethings you were doing while you using?

Just in and out of prison year after year.

What was the price of you using drugs?

His wife divorced him.

What was the worst point or the turning point in your life, that you knew you needed help, and then you began to seek help?

It was after facing the three strikes you’re out law for the second time and his wife divorcing him. After 34 years of drug addiction he got sick and tired of being sick and tired. He also lost the relationship with his children.

Now that you’ve recovered, what word of encouragement would you like to give someone who is struggling with addiction?

There is no future for you in the life of drugs. The paycheck in the end is either bars or life.

Do you believe that outside forces will ever stop trying to tempt someone in recovery?

No, the temptation will always be there, even at his old age.

The temptation of lust, drugs, and anger. We just have to

place it into check or subjection.

Would you suggest the home to someone who is still using?

Of course he would he sees them all the time. He believes real men serve Jesus.  

Is there anything else that you would add to your testimony?

They is a better way it’s a lot brighter with God and the devil is a liar.

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. Thank you.
