I grew up in the church and life was pretty basic and simple. At the age of 16 I started smoking and drinking, which led me to drugs. As a kid it was to be “cool” and as an adult it was to cover my pain. My health got worse with lots of drinking. I am here at Teen Challenge to learn how to stay sober but mainly to look for the things of God. I hope to stay clean minded and prepare myself to go back into the world.
