Life was pretty normal growing up. We had a low income family, but we had everything we needed. I started drinking in my late teens, it wasn’t really a problem until my parents passed away. I started drinking because I enjoyed it, but I kept drinking to deal with stress. I came to Teen Challenge to straighten my life out. My brother came through the program so my family encouraged me to do it. I hope to achieve a better connection with God and overcome my addiction.
Favorite Scripture: 2 Timothy 1:7 “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.”
