I was born and raised in a very loving and supportive family and never really had any major issues in my early years. My addiction actually began in my early thirties. Prior to this, I enjoyed drinking alcohol, but I did not consider it to be a problem. However, I began experiencing stress, depression and lack of purpose. I felt that alcohol would help ease these troubles. Before coming into the program, I felt the Lord telling me that there was a better way of handling problems, but I continued with what I was used to. I finally came to a point in which I was miserable and I decided to reach out to Teen Challenge. I am hoping that I am able to regain the connection and fire that I once had for the Lord, as well as a deeper meaning for life.
