Did we give up on our hopes and dreams and then turn to drugs and alcohol OR did we give up on our hopes and dreams when we turned to drugs and alcohol? Who can say exactly? What we do know is that somewhere along the way, any idea or notion that we’d be somebody usually went away.
Good news! In sobriety we reclaim those hopes and dreams.
This week we have an amazing warstory from Jeff who has come a long way and is rediscovering his own hopes and dreams. As someone who literally was born with drugs and alcohol around him, it was no surprise when he turned out to have issues with addiction. His use had him committing crimes and he wound up doing multiple stints behind bars before he finally realized that he was his own worst enemy. Tune in to hear how he turned it around and what life is like for him today.
Thanks Jeff for sharing your amazing story!
