So pretty much my life was full of drug use. In 2012 I got introduced to heroin and began using that. I was in active addiction for a year before I found out my mom had cancer. Shortly after that my house was raided and I was incarcerated. While in jail I lost my mom the day before my birthday in 2014. I got arrested in may that same year. Had I not gone to jail I would not be alive. Jail stopped my drug use and helped snap me back to reality. After a lot of self reflection and support from my father and brother I was able to gain a clear frame of mind and begin focusing my energy elsewhere. I started working out and told myself I was going to make my mom proud. I also lost custody of my son while in jail. When I was released i began working and kept my focus on the goals I wanted to achieve. I met my girlfriend a year ago and she has pushed my harder and farther than anyone. Without jail, my family, and positivity i would not be where I am. I know when you're in active addiction it feels endless but. You can beat this. If you need help please reach out. Don't let life beat you up.
