“I know I messed up a couple of times and I did things I wasn’t supposed to do but I learned from this. It made me see what I was doing to my parents and the pain I was putting them through and that’s not what I want to do.”
“That’s one thing I can say is that even if you’re not an addict you’re going to find the problem so you can deal with it, get it fixed. or you’ll learn how to deal with it.”
