I had a pretty normal life growing up. I do not feel that I had a bad upbringing. I am not exactly sure the age I was when I realized that I was an addict, but I was drinking heavily which ultimately led to an addiction to methamphetamine. Looking back, I felt that these substances were actually helping me. I now understand that was not the case at all. Right before coming into Teen Challenge, the people that I thought were my “friends” all seemed to turn on me. I am here in the program because I knew that I needed something different in my life. I needed to make a positive change and I felt like Teen Challenge provided me with that opportunity. I hope that God will restore me while I am here and help me to live life as a completely different man.
