“Twenty Six Years an Addict: 1985 - 2011”: an uplifting tome of poems that reflect the author’s life of toil brought about by addiction and how he discovered God and changed his life for the better. “Twenty Six Years an Addict: 1985 - 2011” is the creation of published author Ricky Cooks.

Cooks shares, “If you had met me or had any type of relationship with me in the years from 1985 to 2011, you really never knew me. You only encountered a façade covering the residue of what I used to be and were witness to the onset of my withdrawal from reality. My life goals and accomplishments were becoming meaningless. They were dissipating into a cloud of smoke coming from the end of a pipe that was never satisfied as it consumed my life.

“After recognizing my plight and realizing the finality of the dilemma I was in, I cried out to Jesus. About one month later (January 1, 2012, 12:30 a.m.), my eyes were opened. I was led away from darkness to light. I changed from a fornicating crack smoker (I had incorporated drug use and sex into a single act) to a celibate and sober man with a hunger for the truth. On that same day (January 1, 2012, 1:30 p.m.), I entered into Mama Delta’s Love House.

“I have thrown away years of my life and I would like to help others from making and/or maintaining the same mistakes by sharing my feelings, situations, confrontations, and resolutions. I pray that I can make a positive impact on those who have become entangled in one or more of Satan’s devices that are designed to draw us away from the divine light of God into eternal darkness. He who created us without our help will not save us without our consent.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Ricky Cooks’s new book imparts powerful poems that magnify the unconditional love of God that beckons the sinful and lost into His saving grace and repose.

This book will surely warm the hearts of readers as they partake in poetry inspired by a life of victory from torment.
