    Hello and thank you..
    So I got arrested july 18th 2014. I did relapse once the 1st time i went back to my home town in january 2017, u know people places and things honestly do matter i cant say it enough. The only thing i can say is the saying nobody changes is a lie. Each day presents a new struggle its not easy but i jus keep on pushing. For once i have turned my pain into motivation. Ive kept a job since i been out. Completed all state requirements last dec. so the state doesnt own me lol. I knocked out my short term goals. Rn im working on gettin jnto school for computers. Its a great freeing feeling! I just want to help in anyway i can for those who know nothin about it.. recovery is possible for anyone
