I’m not quite sure how I even got here—to a true and solid recovery way of life—but I can tell you that it was a slow, gradual decent straight from hell and back. At some point I knew that I would have to face my demons, the ones I had spent so many years keeping at bay at any cost. At the time I had no way of knowing just how great that cost would be. All that went on nearly cost me my life and family. Mine is a story of a son who spent his life desperately seeking validation at any cost—you might say I was looking for love in all the wrong places.
