Just Because I Smoked Crack And Committed Armed Robberies Don’t Make Me a Bad Person feat. Rene C.

Rene “C” was born to alcoholic parents. In her own words she felt she never had a chance to escape a life of addiction. Growing up her parents were in and out of rehab facilities. Sometimes they would put her in the garage and bring her food at 3 AM instead of taking good care of their small child. By the time she was five or six she was already being sexually molested by a family member that lived at the house. Her parents were never aware of it. The sexual abuse turned into pain and suffering. All through her young years and into middle school Rene became very violent fighting and lashing out at every turn even starting to do self mutilation. By the time she was 13 after several stints in juvenile detention, she ran away from home , leaving her house to join a “boyfriend”. This young boy would lord it over her and continue to abuse her, beating her constantly and dragging her around like trash. She stayed with him for 10 years. They enacted crimes together breaking and entering and violent robberies – continuing on together in crime and violence until she was arrested for beating a girl have to death. After serving time in jail she realized she had to get away from that relationship… but he pursued her and threatened her life… He beat her with a golf club and almost killed her and finally he was taken to prison. This is around the time that Rene began to use drugs. With her background she didn’t just use the drugs slowly – no – she went instantly into heavy drug use. After smoking crack only one time she turned to shooting it in her vein. This is one of the deadliest ways to use crack cocaine. Rene is a true story of the 12 step program saving a life. She’s now a mother with a healthy child and she’s living one day at a time. Listen to this incredible story of resurrection from death, On the verge of suicide and self destruction.
