My life growing up was difficult with no mother or father and not much family support. My addiction began when I was a young boy because of peer pressure and a desire to fit in. I first started using to be a part of what others were doing and to try and relate, then later on in life I used drugs just to cope with life. After realizing that I wasn’t serving any purpose in my life and I really didn’t know who I was, I came to Teen Challenge. I’m here now because I know that Jesus is here for me and He can tell me who I am and why I’m here. My hope now is to find others that can relate with me so that I can be of help to them.
