Thomas W. Glenn Jr.
Tommy was a wonderful man. He was charming, intelligent, charismatic and good-hearted. He could always put a smile on your face.


This prayer circle is for all of those who are suffering from the disease of addiction, dealing with a family members addiction, or those of us who have lost a loved one to addiction. In loving memory of Tommy. September 2,1975-January 27,2001. God Bless


This prayer circle is in memory of Thomas W. Glenn Jr. Tommy was an intelligent, articulate, charming and good-hearted young man. His life ended short at the young age of 25. A true genius, the things he could have achieved if given the chance. On a cold Januay morning he passed away from "bad heroin". His family and loved ones miss him desperately and need prayers. Also, in honor of Tommy the prayers are being said for all of those suffering from the disease drug addiction, families dealing with addiction and loved ones of those who have passed on due to addiction. Tom was a conquerer, if this could beat him...it could beat anyone. Please help one another. Please Lord, give me the strength to continue to fight for this cause. God bless you.

WE LOVE YOU TOM!!!

Tom, you are in the Lords hands now and one day we will meet again For now, I pray for you all the peace and happiness in heaven.

Hey everyone. Never been here before, but wanted to ask for help. My best friends's neice is an addict, she steals from everyone, even her Grandmother. There was a huge fight today and Charlotte(the neice) tore up her mother's house, totally destroyed it and things just went from there to worse. I need help in praying for all of them, the addict, the mother,the aunt and the grandmother, things are so bad, so please help me pray for this family. FATHER, PLEASE BE WITH THIS FAMILY AS THEY ARE IN PAIN TONIGHT, PLEASE MAKE SATAN LET GO OF THEM, AND HELP CHARLOTTE TO GET SOME HELP, AND THE REST OF THE FAMILY TOO. PLEASE JESUS WRAP YOUR ARMS AROUND THEM AND GIVE THEM YOUR LOVE AND PEACE, TAKE AWAY THEIR PAIN AND GUIDE THEM IN THE WAY YOU WANT THEM TO GO. GIVE THEM STRENGTH AND UNDERSTANDING LORD, THANK YOU FATHER, IN YOUR HOLY NAME, AMEN. Thank you, and God Bless

anyways first i want to congrads to Annie on your 7 months,and it sadens me to hear all that you have gone through but girl you got through clean......you should be proud of your self.don't let anyone tell you different.
now onto other business i haven't been to this site since i posted and i want to thank Cindy,Sharon and of course you Kris who has 20 yrs are you kidding me.
thats awsome i't people like you guys that shows me this program works...
as for you Q and BA i wouldn't have expected any other responces from you guys than what you gave.you have to understand as long as you guys are drinking even yes one beer,as far as concerned you guys are still using...so really what can you teach me.i already know how to be an active addict. i come to this site for recovery to learn how to be a RECOVERING addict,when i can't make it to meetings, and a hippocrite well yes i would be one if i was on this site saying one thing but doing another, or crying to be heard in one breath but saying oh it's okay if i have this one line because you know what i've had a bad day. BS those in recovery know that one is NEVER enough and a thousand to many.and es that includes alcohol ladys,but they also say that an active addict will get you high before you get them clean.and you know what i don't have enough clean time to have the patience to or maybe the tact to say anthing i said different to you girls.
oh and BA yes i was in rehab once before i was 14 my parents signed me in,hoping to curve my behavior but guess what it didn't work intill I WANTED it.thats the difference between you and me is that i want this,you don't.and i made it out more than one month at 25 and how old are you so don't knock my recovery girl because at least i have some. yes you know what you may have mental issues,and i'm glad that your etting help.but o matter what medicine your on,if you don't want to stay clean you wont.well see how it goes for you. and your right in the medical feild you will get caught and you will lose your job.
Q-babe i have such a soft spot fo you in my heart and i wan to see you do so well.and i hope with that added responcibilty (taylor)you will get clean i know being a mother in active addiction must kill you,it did me and it still does when i think of all the stuff that could have happened to Darianna through my inabilitie to deal with life on lifes terms.and i thank God that now the mother i am is nothing like the mother i could have been. so please baby don't give up.i am routing for you more than you will ever know. and i know that one day you will see that light,and i will hear you say Jess you were right. this side is so much better.please go to a meeting if you don't like it you don't ever have to go again.and as for your friends opions on my post.honet they to are in active addiction so what do they know about recovery,not to much right?.....


draganess
5/11/2004 01:45

oh for all those mothers please hang in there don't coddel your children but when they are ready if they make through the active stage you are who they will turn to.i turned to my mom and if it wasn't for her willingness and belief in me before i could get my own i would not be here. all your familys are in my prayers including you Chawn,unfortunatly though no matter how much we pray charlotte is so unconnected with a higherpower of anykind,any one who uses is and the ones that God does touch are the ones that all it takes is one time to get it,for most it take alittle bit more.love and light to all Jessica

kris also you know what i have noticed with your posts it seems that when ever the lord speaks through you.i can tell because it always goes to caps and then goes back.i don't know just thought i would share that i think it's cool.

5/11/2004 02:14

No, Jess, only one (Jaci) person's opinion to your post was still an active addict. The other two were not. But, thank you for your support and I appreciate what you wrote. I feel like my point is being lost in all this somehow. I feel that you deal with people on a loving basis and you get better results. If you deal with people in anger - you will get the same. I feel that Kris went way overboard on some of the things she said even if they were her feelings at the time. They came across sounding angry and spiteful and I don't see how any good can come of portraying those feelings. I'm only 38, so maybe I have a lot to learn - yes, I'm sure of it, but I do know one thing and that is if you strike out in anger - the response you get isn't usually a positive one.

Chawn, my prayers are with your best friend and her family tonight. It sounds like they have a long, hard road ahead of them. Your best friend is lucky to have you there for her.

I should hit the hay. Life seems to be going fairly smooth. I took Cassy down to get food stamps and a health card and she found another place to stay. I would hope that someone would be there for me if I needed help. Call me a bleeding heart, I don't know - but I do know I feel good about helping her and I pray that she can overcome her problems in life and follow the path God meant for her. God Bless

Good Morning All, It has been awhile since I have left a post. I am having some trouble with my computer & it is difficult for me to even sign into the site. I do read all of the posts & ALWAYS keep You ALL in my heart & my prayers. This site was created with LOVE for all addicts (active & in recovery)for all those dealing with the addiction of a loved one & for those of us who have lost a loved one to addiction. This site was created in honor of my best friend, my Cuz, Tommy. Everytime I read a positive word or see someone finding comfort in anothers post, it makes me proud of Him. It also eases my pain. In my eyes he lives on through this site ( & many other ways as well)To see others seeking help here helps me to feel that my loss was not in vain. I know what a sensitive topic this is & that we are all very passionate about addiction. I watched as Tommy went through detox after detox, he tried so very hard to get clean. The Lord had a bigger plan for him. He died at 25! I have to accept that was God's plan. ( when God needs another angel, he chooses the very best) The Lord has a plan for each of Us, & it is not up to us to judge one another. Rather help one another. I pray that we can get back to that here. From the person who got high this morning to the person with 20 years in recovery, we are ALL God's children. I pray for all of Us , that we see just how blessed we truly are. I pray for those still using to find what they need to get to the point of recovery. I pray for those in recovery to have the strength & willpower that it takes everyday to stay sober. I am looking at my clock, it's just about 7 am. I pray for all the kids in this city who are waiting right now to cop, I pray they make it through the day alive. I pray that each of us are aware of how blessed we truly are for most of those kids have no home let alone a computer and a support group like we have here. I have seen friendships made over the past few years. That I would never want to see broken. I pray thatwe can all open our hearts & minds to love & support each other. It doesn't mean that we have to agree with one another about everything. We can disagree with love & respect. We can offer advice without judgement. I never had any idea that this site would grow to reach so many. I pray that we can all learn how to help one another better. I am grateful for God allowing me to start this site & honor my Cuz. I am grateful for all that I have learned from You all. I am grateful for the wonderful friendships. I pray that each of us can get back to what we had here. A family. Sometimes families say hurtful words or do things that we are not happy about. One thing I always found so amazing about this site is the UNCONDITIONAL LOVE we all have for one another. So I am asking everyone to please come here today with open hearts & forgive each other for our mistakes, we are all human & none of us are perfect. Be thankful for having each other & for all that we have learned from one another and let us continue doing just that. ( It took me over an hour to make this post b/c I can not see what I am typing ( computer probs)so please take a minute to think about what I am saying)I am blessed to know each of You.Always in my hearts & prayers. Love, Ren

Good Morning to all~
SO VERY GOOD TO HEAR FROM YOU REN!! As I said during my early days here, I am so very grateful for what you have done here in honor of Tommy, and YES! He does live on through this site! It must be such a blessing to have had a cuz like him, that God is still using!! I'm glad you posted. I had a feeling you would before too long! God Bless you. Much love,Cindy/Angel
To everyone else, I want to thank ALL of you for being so honest here lately!! It is quite refreshing to see!! And yes, as Renee stated sometimes famlies do have disagreements, but a family will get through it, and will be better off for it,if we are willing to learn, and I have no doubt that THIS FAMILY will be just fine also! God is in control, and He knows everything this family is going through right now,and He knows every ones heart. If I did offend anyone, I do apologize for it, but never for speaking Gods truth, for that is what I am to do.Just one little note about Kris - I think she showed her anger because she is SO frustrated, and just can't seem to get through.I know I for one just HATE the demon of addictions!!!!!! So you can get very frustrated, because you watch loved one destroy their lives, and the lives of others, with what SEEMS to be total disregard!! Enuff! :)
Father God,
I come to you in Jesus Holy Name-
The Name above all Names, and I come to You with a very grateful heart for all Your many blessings to us that You give so freely! You are an awesome God, and I am so very proud and grateful to be called one of YOUR children!!!I pray Lord, for all the people that touch our loved ones life weather it be teachers, church members, relatives, friends, or even those in goverment that affect our daily lives that they are guided by You oh Lord.
I pray for all addicts every where, and those that love them for guidence, and protection, and that in some way they may be brought to Your Light, and saved through Your precious Son, and our Saviour, Jesus Christ. I praise You Lord, of all creation. I pray for peace in this land Lord. I pray for a renewal of Your Holy Spirit within us all. Help us all Lord to be still and to KONW that You are a faithful God.In Jesus precious Name I ask,
Amen
Gotta get to work, but felt led of God to post before I leave.
Please keep my Grandson in your prayers, as my son is in jail as of yesterday, and on a parole hold, so he is going back to prison. DCFS is involved, and it is a big mess. My Grandson wants to live with his " Ma Cinny", and I pray if it be pleasing to God that that is exactly what happens!!
Thank you for your prayers
Love in Christ Jesus-
Cindy/Angel

My prayers be with you all who have posted here and my admiration is for all those who have made Tommy's tragedy result in the good for many others in this forum through God's power. Today I ask you may join your hands with me in praying for my half-lifelong friend whose life has become a tattered mess of ruins after years of alcoholism. Today his mental health is in an alarming state and he is destitute and very much in need of God's hand to change his life around. His family and friends have all left him and I fear for his suicide but with everyone's prayers perhaps we can plead with God for his soul before it is too late. Please if you have just one moment remember my friend Monty as I rememember all your requests in my prayers! In Jesus' name-Tammy

HElloeveryone!!!!!! first of all , the one i would like to say something to first, because i too am having a lot of computer promblems, and i am just not able to past on here , like i use to or would like, but i always , always know when GOD is ready for me to come here, because it just seems that it is so easy to get on here then, and there have been times i have tried to come over here, and the computer would kick me out, and the whole screen would start shutting down, but i have to say first and foremost, i am so glad renee and always happy when we are able to talk, and i was not able yesterday to get on here at all, but i did want to read your post and i am so glad to see you on here. and everything you said is from the heart and you are such a precious friend, and you are right, we are family here , and there is a deep abiding love and i still feel the anoiting on this site, and the leading on it. and as you and cindy said, we may not always agree, because with family there is going to be disagreements, and things are said attimes, but as yall also said too, and that is the love never changes, it is uncondional, and it is there with the heart, and because of that, when you see one of his brothers or sisters in trouble or you know that they just need to know that the choices of their lives only lead two places, and you want to do whatever you can to help them,and i thank you as always for this precious site you down in remembrance of your cousin , of tommy, because it has MADE so many HUGE differences, and as you said, there are so many out there that does not have that, and it is good that those that do have this oppurtunity to realize that we come in love and support, and sometimes it takes tough love to get through, and as cindy said, and me and you talked the other day, this has been really hard, because i DO NOT like to have to be ANGRY, or know that i have had to hurt someone feelings, or anything to that, but sometimes it takes a army of believers to stand strong in the battlefield, and be willing to carry that one that is weak through it anyway they can, and we allhave tried to do that. i am so proud of you renee, and what you have accomplished in and with this site, because GOD placed it upon your heart, to do something that would bring out positiveness, and help others , so that they would not have to go down that road that so many have. i knoe that with me, it was a long hard struggle, because even when i was not in drugs or alcohol, i was somehow had fallen in that pattern, of going from the frying pan back to the fire, and every man i was with , was so very addicted, and very abusive, but it became all i knew for awhile, even knowing down deep in my heart and soul that one day it would not alwasys be like that, and THAT WAS GOD TAKING ME THROUGH ALL THOSE FIRES, and i think that that is what and wwhy and you and i and cindy and a couple other friends have talked about it and i have felt led from the beginning to this site, and right awaay i felt a leading to quigley , and then came ba, and it was like I HAD TO do what ever it took to get through, and all of you know on here, and it is still is a little, was the hardest thing gor me to do, to show anger. because i do not like to do that, and that is just not what i am about, but i felt led that i had to do it, and everything i ever say and do is from my heart and also a leading that GOD IS WANTING ME TO SAY. and i too like you said, am soooooooooooo glad to see you back on here, and i will talk to you again soon. and you know you are in my heart and prayers, and always someone i hold dear, as all of you on here. love ya lots, kris

Renee, what you said in your post couldn't have been said any better. God Bless you.

Thank you Kris. I know that you care and I love you for that. I have never been one to like arguments or confrontation in my life so sometime I tend to run the other way if I see it coming. I never meant to hurt or upset you either.

I met someone the other day who seems to be very honest and good and doesn't have the addiction problems that I am dealing with. He is just a friend right now but it is a nice change to hang out with someone who has his life together. I have been working at a friend's house painting (they won the lottery 21.7 million) and they are remodeling and hired me - which was a blessing because I needed the money. My losing my job was one of the best things that has happened in the past year and I went to drive dumptruck for my new friend Jerome today after that. I am enjoying life again, it feels so good. Life has taken a whole new turn in the past couple of weeks and I thank God for that. Taylor seems happier too. Thank you all for keeping us in your prayers as you are all in mine Love Q

I wish you luck down the road caz it sure sounds like your carrying around alot of hostility and anger esp since youve been drinking sine 14 Oh mY GOD..I pray he watches over you and bye the way you asked Im 40, jusst graduated last night from shool.,for a nurse, starting a new Job on monday and its all because the GRACE OF GOD..The rest I widh you well, Im doing great, couldnt be happier with life and the boyfriend.

Was sooooooooo happy to finally see you on here and the perfect words you said..Before a few people came to this site ( and they no who they are) there was alot of LOve in here, and lately its been alot of negative , harsh words. We are all good friends going back even to 1 yr ago. I have always thanked Renee for this site, caz it is a place of caring, giving, helping people sharing their stories and struggles in life. We appreciate everyones experiences..Draganess you asked what can you learn in here? LISTEN< READ, look back at the old posts...Lear how to be a giving, KIND person and you will feel much better about yourself. As for my Job, I dont no where you got that I drink during the day but I dont, so Im not worried about loosing my job, to busy helping and CAREING for patients to worry about booze, but thanks for the negative advice,
May God bless all of you and may we get the love, peace, and kindness back on this site like we used to have. Q-so glad for you, Im very happy lately too, new puppy, new job, done with school 3.65 grade average - I wish you well Kris and nope I wasnt offened bye you caz you speak out of love and over this last year you have taught me alot, God bless and I pray your health gets better,

Love you too BA - Congratulations! I'm very proud of you - You go girl!

Dear Lord,

I pray that you can direct me to the right school for medical transcription if that is what I am to do with my life. If not, I pray I figure it out soon. I pray that you can help heal Jerome's heart and watch over my friends here onthis site. Keep us all safe and help BA and I with the willpower to keep away from drugs and alcohol. I pray this new idea to get my truck back works. Or something works - I just want it to be over with. Keep me strong emotionally and help me to deal level headedly with the situation. Please soften Brett's heart and I pray that he someday sees the wrong he does to other people. Thank you for the love and support I have recieved in the last 6 months. Amen

you know what BA, enough is enough,i'm not going to fight with you about recovery or what you think it is as aposed to what i think it is.i don't need to go back and read everything,you have nothin to prove to me,just like you said.i'm glad once apon a time you were able to put three months together lets see if yo can do it again there is a saying "principle before personalitys" so i'm going to practice that principle and pray for you.. comgrads on nursing school,i'm sure you'll do great.as long as you can stay clean,the world is yours.
Cindy...hope that all is well with you you and your family are in my prayers.
Renee..i personaly havn't spoken to you but my hat goes off to you for starting this site.i have said it many times,if i can't physically get to a meeting this is usally where i go.thank you.like someone said above it must make you feel blessed that tommy is still being used as a messenger. God bless your whole family.
Kris as always a pleasure reading your post thank you very much for your complements. i try not to be harsh on people,but when something needs to be said,i'm not so easily intimidated.I hope God does work through me if I can just get to one person,than i will have giving back what was so freeley given to me.
i truley sorry if i can across harsh to anyone or hurt anyones feelings.sometimes i still lack tact.i is one of my charecter defects.my intentions were not to hurt anyone but open your eyes.but you know what everyone has there own process so when you get there you get there.(no one impiticular)
i need to vent how i am doing,second job is good,i'm making really good money again.the hospital is always good.i'm still clean although my family is pushing me to my limits,my sister moved into where i moved out of(an apt. that my father owns)and my father is statring his whole in order to prove you love me you must give everyone up sort of thing.Amy is in active addiction with both my nieces living there. she has ordered court case copies from 20 yrs ago,to see what happened in our past that we were to young to know about,i'm very afraid that theses court papers will make her go over the edge which she now sits so closely at.i know that there is nothing i personally can do for her.so i guess i'm just asking for people to pray for her strength i'm well aware that she has to come to her process at her time,it just sucks to have to watch my two nieces go through desavue of my childhood.it hurts me to see them. i worry about them,i know that God will take care of them and watch over them but at what cost,when do they get to have the life that they deserve? i'm not surei am though on my way to a meeting i need to share and my sponcer is on vacation,so i need to reach out to some of my other support network.

Hello all,

Didn't have time to read any posts just wanted to pray tonight. I am beat. I am working both jobs - legal and painting. Funny thing is I would rather paint. Things are going pretty good. I'm feeling a little lonely tho. I have a lot of friends (guys and girls) but can't seem to quit thinking that every guy I date doesn't even come close to how I felt for Brett. But trust me, I will never put Taylor or I in harm's way with that man again. But I wish I hadn't of loved him and I hope someday that I can find that love again. Taylor seems happy. She likes Jerome. He's a good guy but not anything but a friend. Hope everyone else is doing okay. need to go to bed Goodnight

I pray Lord that you keep all of us addicts here on this site strong against the will for drugs and alcohol. I pray that I take the right paths to life from now on. Keep me from straying withthe wrong crowd. I pray that I find a way to get my truck back. I want to forgive Brett for what he has done not hate him. I pray that you can help me be strong enough not to hate him. Watch over Taylor and keep her happy and safe. Amen
