From the time I can remember, my life was driven by fear and uncertainty. Eventually that fear drove me into an abusive relationship with substances. In my youth I experimented with drugs and alcohol. It wasn’t until my mid 20’s that I started drinking heavily. When I first started using, it was out of curiosity. Although, after May of 2019 alcohol became sustaining for me. After a series of losses from divorce to deaths, the hopelessness increased and so did my addiction. That is what brought me to Teen Challenge. My goal is long-term. I desire to live a life of sobriety walking with God, so that I may impart hope to my family and others.
