Looking back at my past and my upbringing I see a life that was full of holes. It was incomplete or just seemed empty. My addiction began the summer after eighth grade.  I’m sure I used drugs and alcohol to fill the void in my heart. Coming to Teen Challenge was a decision that I made for myself. It was after years of being a successful working woman, a mother and wife. That life didn’t mean much. I was willing to allow my addiction to take me and my family out. And it almost did, because I found no true fulfillment in this life. I hope to find who I am in God through Christ and that he fills every incomplete area and makes it whole again.
