I chose life and so can you

My name is Jeffrey W. I’m 22 years old, my drugs of choice were alcohol and cocaine. My life started to become unmanageable and uncomfortable due to the fact of my use,  not to mention the fact that I used and drank to cope with the loss of my son at only 4 years old he passed away in a car accident. While in treatment I  experienced many hardships and tribulations, I lost both of my sisters my cousin, and my dad while in treatment but I had to make a choice do I want to live or do I want to die? I chose life because my whole family was and is full of addicts. I chose to lead by example for my family and not be another statistic in the system;  The Watershed truly changed my life for the better I was able to find employment at a construction company.  I even got my heavy machinery license back I don’t know what I would do without the shed!!!! I’ll be celebrating 1 year clean on June 15, 2019 because of the  awesome, selfless, compassionate, outgoing, understanding of people at The Watershed, and also because of my awesome sponsor . If it wasn’t for these people then I don’t know where I would be at this point and time of my life. If it wasn’t for them I’d be out using and drinking right now but I chose life and so can you.

all gave some but some gave all R.I.P John Samuel West Sr. a father a husband my friend and a hero
