~ From the Doreen Virtue and Robert Reeves book, “Angel Detox” ~
“Kevin Hunter, a former addict whose coffee detox story appeared earlier in this chapter, believes that most people who are abusing drugs and alcohol are running from something. Usually it involves some kind of emotional trauma and unresolved emotional pain. They use drugs because they don’t like how they feel when they aren’t using.
Kevin grew up in an abusive and volatile home. By the age of 21, he had turned to drugs and alcohol to escape. He was on cocaine, crystal meth, and marijuana. When he wasn’t using drugs, he was drinking excessive amounts of alcohol until he blacked out. (When you black out from alcohol, the angels say you’re more open to negative entities attaching themselves to you.)
Kevin had always had a strong connection to his angels and had never had a problem hearing guidance from above. His angels provided him with numerous opportunities to hear their messages, but his addictions were preventing him from accepting them.
But it got to the point where he could no longer hide from his guidance by overindulging; it was time to get clean. Kevin worked with his angels to release his cravings for drugs and alcohol, and by the age of 25, he was completely clean.
Today, Kevin is extremely health conscious and fit. He exercises regularly, is strong and independent, and has a clear mind. People who know him today have no idea of his past addictions. He has worked with the angels to detox his life step-by step.”
