If seven years ago you would ask me where I could be today, straight away I would say prison or dead. I never once imagined becoming the man I am today.
My mother raised me with my other siblings I never showed any signs of misbehavior as I knew how to cover it. I had all a child could ask for, whoever the problem started when I was in form 2, I met new friends who introduced me to smoking marijuana and drinking alcohol.
From then I started misbehaving and bullying other students even teachers. This situation started affecting my studies to the point that I failed my Cambridge. As I couldn’t find any job because of my bad record of misbehavior, I started selling marijuana to students to make a living.
My family tried to help me out but nothing worked. Things even got worse; I planted marijuana in my backyard to easily have access to it. I was known in the community as rebellious, stubborn and bully, I would rob and beat people up. At one point I met a friend who give me a pistol to protect myself, this friend was involved in an armed robbery and later got arrested. Fortunately that time I was not with them. But even after the incident, nothing changed as I continued with my old bad habits. I could not get anywhere in life, my life was moving in round about. I was hopeless in the eyes of people.
Until one day I friend invited me to the meeting of addiction cleansing therapy in the Universal on Sunday 2pm. I started putting into practice what I was taught in that meeting and I was delivered from all the addictions and all bad habits. It has been two years since I stopped smoking marijuana and living clean life. I’m no longer a troublemaker. My life is completely transformed.
Today I’m running my own business. The best part is that I’m happy with my life now and I thank God for everything he has done.
