At age 14, John had already begun early drinking and the smoking of marijuana. After high school, he was discharged from the Air Force (dishonorably discharged) due to his anger problems and the discovery of the stash of marijuana.Upon being discharged from the Air Force, John relocated to New Jersey living with his mother and sister. The story, because he had to have a story for his Mom, who had a zero-tolerance for foolishness, so it was “I’m on vacation”. Didn’t take long before John's mom realized and discovered he had been lying and was dishonorably discharged from the Air Force and drugs were part of the reason. After she realized what had actually taken place,

John had not been honest, she asked him to leave. John relocated to New Brunswick, New Jersey, the home of Johnson & Johnson's Headquarters and the beginning of a lustrous career with a major fast food restaurant.Along with this resettling he began selling drugs as well as using and transporting them back and forth from Jersey to Harlem. The entire hustle eventually reversed itself and he began to use more drugs than he sold, cooking, free-basing all just a disaster called insanity … awaiting deliverance.During this progression John met Janice and began to date.

But, eventually, his addiction began the spiraling process and everyone noticed the difference. His Addiction causing him to become so desperate during this separation that at times cigarette butts out of public receptacles were his main resort for which he could get a tool to get high him high off the drug purchased.

His sudden awareness of the darkness of his life began to set in quickly and he began to realize that he was totally wrecking the lives of others,his wife, his kids, family, friends and himself. But at this point, realizing his life being unmanageable and he realized he had no power. Realizing desperately the need for God to help him make the necessary steps and decisions to change in his life, he knew… It had to be God for his life and family and awareness that it couldn’t be both and cried out to the Lord."God helped him to change his thinking and his image about myself," Roy said. "That Has helped me and continues help me to care about other people. I'm thankful that God Still has purpose for me, and that I'm still here for a reason. I just thank Him that He Never gave up on you.” John H. Roy, Jr.
