I grew up in a Christian home with my stepbrother, half-sister and stepdad. I started smoking weed in sixth grade. By the time I was about 17 or 18 years old, it turned into cocaine, psychedelics, and benzodiazepines. At first, my use was because my friends did it and I thought it would bring me the satisfaction that I so desired. Recently though, I allowed weed and alcohol to cause me to stumble, so I came back to Teen Challenge to reset my relationship with Christ. I have hope now in my relationship with God
