THE STORY:

My name is Joe Eldridge. On March 26th 2012 I found a new way to live, sober, & I live one day at a time, facing life on life's terms to help other addicts achieve the same goal, happiness, & freedom that I have found through Faith & Guidance of my Higher Power, in who I choose to call My Lord & Savior Jesus Christ! I am a Father/Husband, Son, Uncle, & Friend always, a Construction worker by day, & have dedicated my life to help suffering addicts during my free time!! Mostly to give back & do onto others what was so graciously done for me! I have been to 26 funerals, tomorrow will make #27. I am 27 years old so I have been to as many funerals (as of tomorrow) than the years I have been blessed to be on this Earth!! One of my closest friends passed away due to a long hard fought battle of the disease of addiction! As well as my best friend that passed away 2 years ago, along with many others I grew up with, or knew while they were on this Earth! Out of 27 funerals 20 have been alcohol or drug related! As I understand It's impossible to help everyone, as many have already passed on haven't hit "their bottom" yet, or just simply haven't experienced enough pain to force change! I also know so many more still out there battling this horrible demon at this very moment, suffering & can't receive the help they need & deserve because of the cost of treatment today! I made it with others help, because I too come from a paycheck to paycheck type background, including my life today, as I live paycheck to paycheck to Raise a family of 6. My beautiful wife Patricia, & our 4 Amazing little boys, & I strive everyday to be a better person, son, father, husband, brother, Councelor, & friend!!! Please help in Anyway possible today, whether it is just leaving kind words of wisdom, experience, strength & hope, or its donations to help people get the live back that they want so bad but can't afford  & change the life/lives of addicts out there still suffering!! Help me show them that there is still people that care, that there is hope & a way to change even if you are broke or poor, or if nothing else, a simple comment showing them that you are there for them!! Thanks to all! I love you all so very much & I wouldn't be where I am today, coming up on 4 years clean, if it wasn't for all of you!! Thanks from the bottom of my heart & God Bless all!!!

I will continue to donate as I can, every Friday when I get paid!! Let's help each other save an addicts life, one addict at a time.. The Save a Life of a Suffering Addict Fundraiser is a short step in the direction I want to go in, to help others! I'm coming up on my 4 year anniversary of Sobriety on March 26th, 2016.. So I'm living proof... It works! Just put in JUST HALF of the effort to get and stay clean, as you did to find your demise, you will be just fine & change for the better!! You must do it ultimately through a higher power of your choosing, & for yourself!!! Don't do it for someone else, but definitely use them as motivation!! If you ever need anything or just someone to talk to or a shoulder to cry on, call me anytime!! (865) 242-9393 THANKS & GOD BLESS ALL 3 years ago
