I was at a school dance when a friend forced me to try cocaine with him. I was only twelve years old and I had never done anything like that before.
After that, I started using meth, and my addiction took over my life. As the years went by, I wasn’t happy. Most nights I would sleep in my car. It was only a matter of time before I was on my way to prison.
My probation officer knew I needed a second chance and introduced me to a man by the name of Markku at Cityteam. Markku understood addiction because he had been there. I trusted him even though I was extremely lost and depressed. At Cityteam I have found serenity in God and happiness that I have never felt before. I am working as a catering assistant while I go through a six-week pre-apprenticeship class. All the glory and praise goes to God.
