After Depression Led to a Serious Drug Addiction, Falun Dafa Saved My Life

Print

In a little over a month, I got my health back after being a heroine addict and in a state of desperation. I am still amazed by the extraordinary power of Falun Gong, and I would like to do all I can to tell people that Falun Dafa is good. Falun Dafa saved my family.

My Life Became a Joke

My name is Chen Ronghui. I live in Pingdong County, Taiwan. I run a transportation business with a monthly income of 300,000 to 400,000 Taiwan dollars. My four children were well behaved and I had a great family. Unfortunately, my wife took to gambling and was in debt for hundreds of thousands of Taiwan dollars. Not only that, she even had an affair at the same time. Before we were divorced, she wanted to marry another man. I was very shocked by all this, and was totally lost. My happy life turned into a living hell overnight.

I had to shoulder my wife's debts. She threatened that if I did not agree to a divorce, three lives would be on the line. I wanted to sue her for polygamy or sue the man for adultery, but could not decide. On her wedding night, I went to the police station, but the police said that they would have to go to the wedding banquet in uniform and take down information about the guests before they could prosecute them. I gave up. I walked into their wedding banquet. Seeing the guests, I wished her well. I was so lost, and could not understand why life had played such a joke on me.

I Started Taking Drugs

On April 4th, 2001, my two daughters came home from the university. I put down my name and their mother's name on a piece of paper and asked them to write their names under whomever they would like to live. When I saw all four names under my name, I could not help but hug them all. They were all weeping and they called me "Daddy" altogether. I said to myself, I have to be responsible for them and help them succeed in life. I also agreed that their mother could visit them. However, after the passage of four years of a lonely life, I became addicted to heroine. I gambled with the happiness of my family, and I still tremble when I look back.

I was lonely after I the divorce and resorted to drink. But the hangovers were just killing me. Then by chance, I was introduced to heroine. At first, I mixed it with cigarettes. Then I used needles to inject the drug. Because I did not feel the headache inflicted by drinking, and it was even cheaper, I used heroine. I sank even lower and could not kick the habit.

Perhaps fate has it that I should not die. My two daughters found out that I was taking drugs and threatened to quit the university if I didn't quit. I promised them that I would not inject any more drugs, and also followed their advice to see a doctor in the hospital. The doctor could not believe that at my age, I was doing what some troubled youngsters do. After I took some medications, I quit for some time, but went back whenever I was stressed. I felt guilty and ashamed when I thought about my daughters. I needed more heroine each day. Sometimes, when I couldn't get the drugs from the dealer, my withdrawal symptoms became very serious and I felt so miserable. But I still had a wish to quit. Every time after I took an injection, I took some medications. My kidneys and liver were seriously damaged and I was swollen all over. I was dying.

God of Fortune Arrives in My Family

My daughters kept writing to me, telling me how they felt about my drug addiction, and how they worried about me and felt disgusted about fact that I was taking drugs. They did not expect that something they only saw on TV would happen in our family. But they did not know how to help me. Although I promised them that I would quit, I didn't do so until I had all kinds of health problems. At this time, the god of good fortune arrived in my family.

During the Lunar New Year holiday, my brother and sister found out that something was wrong with me. My sister suspected that I was still taking drugs. They questioned me and I told them everything. My sister suggested that I practise Falun Gong and throw away all my medications. Therefore, under the supervision of my sister, I finished watching the nine lectures by Master Li, the founder of Falun Gong. All my family practised with me to encourage me. At first, I did not have enough energy, and when I had an attack, I had tears in my eyes and a runny nose. I was so miserable. But a miracle happened. After a week, most of my swelling disappeared. After another week, a rash developed which covered my body. I could not keep any food down. As soon as I covered myself with a blanket, I felt itchy, as if thousands of ants were biting at me. I could not sit or stand, nor could I sleep at night. But I still went to work at the transportation business during the day. My sister went with me to make sure that I was ok. After one month of no sleep and no rest, the rash disappeared. I am so grateful to Master Li.

My Children Witnessed the Magic of Falun Dafa

My children witnessed how it did not take injections or medications for me to recover, and they were very impressed. My daughter wrote to me, "To tell you the truth, I did not believe in Falun Dafa at first, even though my aunt recovered from cancer because of it. Now that I see my dad's rebirth, I really believe in Falun Dafa. I am so grateful. It saved our whole family. It prevented four children who had lost their mother from losing their father. It saved us all."

My Last Few Words

I have to thank my sister, who brought me Falun Dafa. I came to realise the purpose of life when I was in desperation. I am no longer lonely. Let me say this again: Falun Dafa is good.
