Resolved Question: Will you pray for this situation to be healed?

I’m not sure of the right verbiage….I’m not much of a “godly” type….but this situation can use all the help it can get….

A good friend of mine has been relapsing on crack cocaine. He has lost his car, and is umemployed, and looks like he will lose his house etc…..so he is utterly hopeless, and potentially suicidal – I found a treatment center than will take him for 6 months, and they will pay for it, if he is willing to go…

But his addiction is telling him that he doesn’t need help….those who have been there will know….

And so I’m going…with another freind of his, to try to take him to this treatment center….to save his life….

Will you please pray that Andy is granted grace, or willingness – or whatever it is that will help this situation?

I’m not even sure that I can help – but I do know I would feel awful if I didn’t try something.

Thanks

Resolved Question: My parents want my girlfriend to put our unborn baby up for adoption?

I’m 17 and my girlfriend Brooke is pregnant. She is currently in jail because i called the cops on her right before she was about to shoot up heroin. She has a scary drug addiction and told me she was using marijuana cocaine and heroin to calm her down and she told me she doesn’t feel attractive anymore. She is only a month pregnant and still beautiful she always will be to me. She was in rehab and swore she would never harm out baby with drugs and the baby will change her and get her clean. I took her word and let her leave rehab. Her parents refuse to post bail saying she needs to learn a lesson. I can’t pay for bail i don’t even have a job although I’m looking for one. My parents really like Brooke a lot and want to help her and hope she gets clean. However then want her to put our baby up for adoption saying it would be best for everyone. Brooke already told me she wouldn’t put our baby up for adoption. I don’t want to either i wanna intend on raising our baby and loving it. They might have a point though Brooke still has issues and maybe it isn’t the right time for us to have a baby. I love her so much and i always will should she put the baby up for adoption?
She flat out refused to have an abortion and i am adamantly against it as i don’t want to kill our baby.

Resolved Question: Any suggestions for this letter regarding smoking to my Kentucky State Senator?

Samuel Hoffman

Louisville, KY 40202
Mitchell McConnell

Dear Mr. McConnell
My name is Samuel Hoffman, and I am a resident of . I have lived in for 4 years, and I would like to express my opinion about smoking.
Before I moved to Kentucky, I lived in Michigan. One of the changes I saw was the amount of tobacco crops and an increase in of smokers in Kentucky than in Michigan. The issue is not only in Kentucky, but is a problem festering across the United States, and I urge you to take action.
On April 14, 1994 in front of the House of Representatives, on the Committee of Energy and Commerce, in front of the Subcommittee on Health and the Environment, during the Hearing on the Regulation of Tobacco Products, seven CEOs of tobacco companies, under oath, claim nicotine is not addictive. Mr. Campbell, President of Phillip Morris U.S.A., Mr. James Johnston, Chairman and CEO of RJ Reynolds Tobacco Company, Mr. Taddeo, President of U.S. Tobacco, Mr. Tisch, Chairman and CEO of Lorillard Tobacco Company, Mr. Horrigan, Chairman and CEO of Liggett Group, Mr. Sandefur, Chairman and CEO of Brown and Williamson Tobacco Company, and Mr. Donlad Johnston, President and CEO of American Tobacco Company all swore under oath that nicotine is not addictive.
According to Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary, an addiction is a “compulsive need for and use of habit-forming substance (such as heroine, nicotine, or alcohol) characterized by tolerance and by well-defined physiological symptoms upon withdrawal; broadly: persistent compulsive use of a substance known by the user to be harmful.” This clearly describes the effects of nicotine – the active drug in cigarettes.
In the U.S. Surgeon General’s 1988 report on nicotine addiction the following was stated: “Cigarettes are highly efficient nicotine delivery devices and are as addictive as drugs such as heroin or cocaine.”
Clearly, nicotine – the active ingredient in cigarettes – is addictive. I support higher regulation of smoking.
In addition to the addictive effects of nicotine, second hand smoking is also a profuse issue, especially in Kentucky. Second Hand Smoking has harmful effects. Laws protecting citizens against second hand smoking would benefit the health of Kentuckians, and U.S. American Citizens if we could set a standard for other states to follow.
Please consider my thoughts and consider the facts.
Sincerely,
Samuel Hoffman

Resolved Question: R&S: Seriously, how does one work for a born-again ex-addict GED holder who hates you?

Honestly, I really need advice here!

The boss inherited a business from her mom, and was previously a high school drop out, and spent months in rehab for her cocaine addiction. As of 2 years ago, I personally saw her bring hand-rolled marijuana joints to the office in her cigarette case.

She also has a very limited grasp of business math. She actually quoted a client a rate that ensured we’d LOSE money on every unit we sell, and reassured everyone in the office who voiced concern that we’d “make up for it in volume.” It took a $65 an hour consultant to convince her that she was losing money no matter how many units she sold at a loss.

Now she’s laying people off, and making up for the lack of staff by assigning me a new job duty every day, while at the same time reducing my weekly hours.

Now she’s playing Christian music throughout the office, and telling us all that we’d be “as productive as her” if we got “into the spirit of Jesus.”

Now I’m told that I can no longer call the computer technician if we have a problem, because I can just watch her and write procedures… written procedures are apparently an adequate substitute for a Bachelors’ degree in Information Technology! When I voiced concern that the computer tech might be billing us for work she hasn’t done (since I try to NEVER call her) I was told not to concern myself, and that the boss was sure that “the employees in the office steal more than the IT person does.”

So, how do I even speak to a self-righteous twit with no common sense who’s deluded herself into thinking she’s an accomplished businesswoman with a calling to greatness by Jesus himself without being punished by the same self-righteous twit, or being rewarded with a new set of job duties in addition to the ones that used to fill the 40 hours a week I no longer get?
I’m not in a financial position to leave right now.

Resolved Question: why do i always run away from my problems and how do i fix this?

I’ve always avoided my problems. I mean as a child i was always pushed away when i wanted to express emotion…always told i was selfish, so over the years it seems that i don’t really know what my emotions mean…I’m 19 and i am clueless about my emotions and there meanings. I struggled with a cocaine and ecstasy addiction for 4 years, and i drink regularly. So i know i’ve avoided emotions for a very long time. When i was younger i was severely emotionally abused and as a result i have no self confidence or self esteem. So all of a sudden i have all of these responsibilities like university, homework, placement, work, my dad is dying and were losing our house because we can’t afford our mortgage…my mom is working 4 jobs seven days a week so i take care of my brother do the cleaning and cooking, while taking care of my grandma too..now through all this i still manage to drink almost everyday and maintain an above 90 average..which makes it harder to stop because its not effecting my life in such a bad way..except for the fact that i dont know my emotions…which is kind of embarrassing actually. But i can’t make simple decisions for example…if someone asks where i want to go for dinner….i literally cannot say without feel shame and embarrassment ..don’t ask why..i have no idea…how can i fix this without blowing up with anxiety i have generalized anxiety disorder and dont take meds, because of my past addictions. so what can i do..?
