"There was a time in my life when I didn't think I would make it. I had heard about giving it all to God, but I had to hit rock bottom before I understood what that meant. I was on heroin, and I was a con artist---I always had a reason, and I could make you believe it. The turning point was the day I looked in the mirror and didn't recognize myself. That was the day I said, 'Enough!' I walked away from all of it. The drugs, the con, the boyfriend. All of it. I deleted all the numbers in my phone and started hanging around with completely different people. The first year was the worst, but I've been clean 3 years and 5 months now. My goal every night when I lay my head down is to have a clear conscience. It took time, effort, and a one-on-one relationship with God, but he's the one who's getting me through. It's all him."
