My name is Becka and I'm actually writing this story on behalf of my sister, Nichole. Growing up my sister was always a fun loving and happy child. As she grew older she became very rebelious and listened to nothing that our mom said. She would steal my moms car, sneak out if the house and not come home for days. As she got older she started hanging with the wrong crowd and started using drugs, her drug of choice was crystal meth.

Before long she was shooting up, making and selling the drug. This basiclly ended her life as we knew it. She was in and out of different?states, jails and half the time we didnt hear from her for days or weeks at a time. She was neglecting her children and her responsabilities as a mother. My self and our mother helped take care of the children as much as we could. The children eventually went to live with thier father.

She was busted one night at a near by apartment complex and I must say, as hard as it was knowing she she was in jail, we knew she was safe there. She spend some time in jail in 2 different states. Im not sure of the exact time frame. She then spend a great deal of time in treatment, again not sure of the time frame.

I as her sister only went and saw her very few times because I was agree that she neglected her children the way she had and that she always went back to the drug that was ruining her life.

Today, my sister is 4 years sober!!!!!! Works at a drug rehab for women, has had her children back for a year and a half and just this week WON CUSTODY OF THE CHILDREN. I can honestly say that I didnt think she would or could stay clean. She has suprised me for sure. She is working everyday and doing everything she can to ensure she stays sober. She is 20 days shy of graduating from drug court, she is still attending AA meeting daily even tho she is not court ordered and she is the secretary of her AA group. We also lost our little brother and aunt in these past 4 years and she has stayed sober!!!

I must say I didnt think she could do it and she did!!!!!!!! Im very proud of my sister and all the things she has accomplised!!!!!!!

Love you Nichole
