filling the empty space

I started using drugs at age 15. I was a raver kid in the 90's and partied in clubs. I always had an emptiness inside of me that I believe I was trying to fill. I used drugs, women, crime, anything to try to feel connected. It was only when I hit rock bottom going to prison that I discovered what that emptiness was.
We were created to be in fellowship with God. When that relationship is absent we feel empty. We want to fill it all sorts of ways. Since I got saved, I have been sober 3 years. I still think about things but the Holy Spirit convicts me and the thought is gone.
If you really want to find the answer to sobriety, its in Jesus Christ.
