Seven months ago I had 39 cents in my pocket, no desire to live, no job, no friends and a lifestyle full of addiction. Gambling and drugs took over my life and I was unstoppable; creating damage every minute. I disconnected with everyone who loved me including my two kids.
A friend of mine introduced me to a counsellor at the Last Door, he listened to my story and invited me to visit and see if there was something here that I wanted. I took the suggestion and decided to stay here and make the necessary changes to learn how to live life clean. Today I have more than 39 cents in my pocket, I am clean and free from active addiction. I have friends, I am working, I have a healthy relationship with my loved ones and I am repairing the damage I created.
With Pride I tell you that I am leaving in a few days to go to the Convention in Spain followed by a tour of Italy, WOW! Who would have thought my life would be so fulfilling, thank you Last Door for helping me find the miracle of recovery and for teaching me how to better myself.
