How Rehab Inspired Me to Start My Own Business

I suffered with drug and alcohol addiction for quite some time in my younger years.  As a teen and a young adult, I was all about drugs and alcohol and what they could do for me.  It took me awhile before I was able to really snap out of it and start doing something different with my life.  The truth is actually, if it hadn’t been for my parents I probably would not be here today.  I really do believe that this would be the case, because things were bad for me, and they could have gotten a lot worse too.  My parents strong armed me into going to rehab, and I am so glad that they did.  They really helped me a make a great change in my life, and I would not be here, changed as I am, if it had not been for them and their incessant need to see me rehabilitated and sober.  They were my guiding torches through my recovery, and for that I am eternally grateful to them.
