What I Wish Someone Had Told Me - Part 9: Yesterday's History, Tomorrow's a Mystery, Today is a Gift

Welcome back to another edition of our podcast series, "What I Wish Someone Had Told Me." On today's show, we welcome an incredible man who's celebrating 14 years of sobriety. Huck Hart joins Jodi Salvo to share his story of addiction as he takes us on a heartfelt journey through darkness and into light.

Huck talks about his early years and introduction to substance use. He talks about how an immediate addiction to alcohol at age 12 led to marijuana use, which later led to cocaine, meth, heroin, and more. Huck fed his addiction for 36 years. During that time, he spent time in jail, accumulated 32 felonies, overdosed and died 3 times, and pushed away everything and everyone good in his life. All just to feed his addiction. Your heart will feel Huck's pain when he explains how his life had gotten so low that he decided to leave his fate to a gun and a game of Russian Roulette.

Huck's last name is truly fitting as Mr. Hart shares his heart with all our listeners. His story of victory with God is nothing short of inspiring. As Huck says many times, for years he lived life Huck's way. Now, he lives life God's way. And life is good.

If you or a loved one is struggling with addiction, call Rachel Wentworth at the substance use Hope Line at 330-663-6812.
