    YOU LOST US WHEN YOU GOT TO "VALUES AND MORALS". WTF? We thought you were SERIOUS!!! What is next a BOOK? TOUR WITH FOX NEWS ABOUT YOUR "UNIQUE STORY?" VERY UNIQUE BS……VALUES AND MORALS ALL CAME BACK AND I WAS "CLEAN AGAIN" AFTER STOPPING THE DEVILS WORK…..THOSE PILLS "LEGITIMATE PATIENTS" WITH CANCER, NEUROLIGICAL DISEASES, SPINE INJURIES ALL NEED……McKeeson Drug company is one of the DRUG CARTELS MANUFACTURING, MARKETING, SELLING TO ILLEGAL DISTRIBUTORS AND ILLEGAL PATIENTS…..ILLEGITIMATE PATIENTS WHO COULD USE A "ASPIRIN" IF THEY HAVE A SORE FOOT!!!!!! USA DRUG COMPANIES AND POLITICIANS GETTING MILLIONS FROM THEM SHOULD GO TO PRISON!!! DRUG CARTELS SELLING OPIOIDS. $190 BILLION IN PROFITS!!! HOW THE FUK DOES THIS HUGE PROFIT HAPPEN???? ILLEGAL ILLEGAL ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES. THERSE ARE NOT UNIQUE STORIES. ADDICTS WHO ARE ADDICTED TO SEX, PILLS, SYRINGES, ALCOHOL, TOBACCO, MORE SEX……MORE PILLS AND CAPSULES ARE JUST "M,ENTALLY ILL AND NEED PSYCHIATRIC HELP". Whether there was a PILL around or not….THEY ARE ADDICTED TO SEX, DRUGS OF ALL KINDS AND KILLING EMOTIONAL PAIN….THE BRAIN IS DAMAGED. GENETIC PROBLEMS IN FAMILY PROBABLY CAN BE SEEN!!! NO, YOU ARE NOT UNIQUE. BOOK SALES? ZERO……FOX MIGHT LIKE THE "VALUES AND MORAL BS THOUGH". WORKS FOR THEM…….WE ALREADY HAVE THAT WE DO NOT NEED DRUGS!

    God bless you Randi. ❤✌

  9. Stormy Bryant

    thus is so sad, such a beautiful lady. she is so strong

  10. Lynn Reider

    I love your reaction to being put in jail…it says volumes about you. It tells me that wise part of you was still in there, screaming to be heard. I am so impressed by you! And so glad you made it out! The world needs you! Welcome back! God bless you! I have no doubt you are an amazing recovery mentor! Thank you for making this amazing video!

  11. Betty Jo Hunter

    People who abuse pain meds…. ruin it for the ones who are at home in pain from surgery!

  12. David Crandall

    I am scared of being in so much pain that I get addicted to these drugs.

  13. nicola parkes

    Guys, good luck to you all. You deserve an amazing joy filled life. Be positive and strong. Get the life you're entitled to xxx

  14. WalkaMinutewithme

    Search YouTube- “How to painlessly cure opiate withdrawl”. If you or a loved one is in this situation watch this video. It saved my life.

  15. I'm Travelin channel

    Totally can relate…pills about killed me..

  16. Mrs. Waters

    every one that I have met that are addicted to pain pills became addicted over a minor injury and they milk that injury for years because they like getting high off pain pills. Many times I have been given a rx for pain pills and you know what I did… I threw the rx away and took an advil. As a parent there's no way I could function taking care of our kids and home if I'm knodding out or feeling loopy on pain pills. You chose to abuse pain pills, yes drs shouldn't over wrote scripts but it's your choice. Just like its a choice if you want to stop on the corner and buy crack from a dope dealer.

    Sad…

    I need to see this everyday

  19. Bernard Popp

    How can she be a step mom & a girlfriend simultaneously tho?

  20. Marcy Campbell

    Thank you for your message of hope. I too am an addict. I lost my brother to a fentanyl overdose. I didn't start my addiction until age 37. I stayed away from street drugs and I never thought of pills as a problem. I'm a Christian, I believe in Jesus and talk to Him all the time. Aside from getting started on pills before a hysterectomy, I had no idea how much of a grip this can have on your life. You would think losing my brother to drugs would have taught me, but it made me want to understand why he couldn't quit. Mine was a multi-faceted Learning lesson. (Still is). I have children on drugs who I wouldn't understand if I wasn't doing them myself. I thought my brother didn't love his family, because if he did… he'd quit. I realize it has nothing to do with love of family.
    It is an actual disease just as alcoholism.
    I'm on the tail end of this journey as well. I've admitted I have a problem. I've been on this roller coaster ride too long. It's time to get off. I will do it cold turkey. I've had those "one more day" too many times, but I can honestly say I wouldn't change a thing. This is a very important tool in helping reach others. Just as someone who's never been to jail can't relate to someone in jail…someone who's never been on drugs can't relate to someone on drugs. I have compassion on all people trapped in this web of evil and I applaud everyone who takes to the web and gives us their story. The more people who come forward and talk about it, the more we will progress towards a society who will eradicate it.
    Keep up the good work and God bless you!!

  21. Yvette Mccants

    Very proud of you

  22. Yvette Mccants

    Thank you, I don't like taking those . Its really bad for you

  23. OnlySmokeIndica

    You just like me.. The family has rescued me from all shit..Medicines are shit, hooking shit and inject my whole life together.
    I have everlasting health problems.
    But as a good good wife and children, the basic condition is to maintain the drums. I'm glad that you've got to guaranteed life on track. Family and Drums <3

  24. Little Drummer Channel

    There is freedom in testimony and confession my friend. I am sorry to hear that you dealt with this difficult addiction, but through the power of Jesus Christ, your determination and support you have overcome this addiction. Blessings to you and yours my friend…we will keep you in our thoughts and prayers Micheal.❤

  25. Da Rob&Nea Show

    Aw man cant believe I missed this video that was an awesome testimony man thanks so much for sharing fam sending blessings your way my dude

  26. Marta Laura Zayas

    You are a good guy, very genuine and strong. I'm happy your wife was patient and believed it was possible for you to recuperate. At the same time, it was when she got tired of it that it helped you get strong. It is a long journey to recovery. It is amazing that you are so open with all the details.

  27. Luis Pedro Garcia Castillo

    thanks for sharing!! great message!! RESPECT!!

  28. Michael Williams

    Wow Brother. Thank you for sharing your story with us. You're very inspirational my friend. I'm so glad you overcame your addiction

  29. Huub83 Drums

    I watched this a couple of days ago, but I forgot to comment. This was very touching man, thanx for sharing with us, very coragious.

  30. PICKNSTIX

    LOTS OF GUTS Michael….. Sad story but happy ending. Glad to see you turned it around. I think the professional recording disappeared for a reason — so that you could do just what you ended up doing here, coming across raw and honest and just You and us together in your room. I think this will impact a lot of people in a good way. Thanks for sharing your story

  31. JTrapp

    Good video bro💯💯💯

  32. Albert Moyer Jr

    It takes courage to share a testimonial. Two thumbs up John! May you find your spiritual high in Jesus and the drums always.

  33. Jordan Karg

  34. Aaron Smith

    heavy. goes to show and prove that you really have no idea what people have gone through unless they open up to you. I appreciate the transparency man, mad respect for this. inspires me and I'm sure many others to hear you made it out of your darkness. keep up the hard work!

  35. Ross Rinkenbaugh

    Thank you Michael, for being real brother. God bless you. I can see God has done a lot of work in your life to bring you where your at. I enjoy listening to your drumming, I guess you can say thats an addiction we have in common lol. I pray for you, that you have strength to carry on with keeping clean brother. Keep up the great work, we're all here for ya
