Ronald Mangum, a mechanic presently residing in Montgomery, Alabama with his beloved family and enjoys reading and writing poetry in his free time, has completed his new book “Memoir of an Addict”: a poignant account of the profound damage wrought by addiction and the life-giving power of faith to light the way to redemption.

The author writes, “We live in a world of choices, good and bad. I was immersed in a world of addiction and bad choices. My life spiraled out of control—in and out of prison, taking from anyone who crossed my path, self-exiled because I didn’t trust myself amid the world of chaos I created for myself.

This is my life in the streets, dodging death and embracing my drug of choice, which was cocaine, wanting to stop after sixteen years but felt I couldn’t do it myself. How wrong I was! God took care of me. My mother and my sisters prayed for me. It never occurred to me to pray for myself, let go and let God, until I became sick and tired of being sick and tired.

Everything I endured led me to the point of absolute surrender. This is the story of that surrender and, ultimately, my deliverance. Today, with God’s help, I am constantly evolving into a better person.”

Published by Page Publishing, Ronald Mangum’s engrossing book is a candid cautionary tale and an inspiring message of hope for anyone suffering in the grip of addiction.
