Hi My name is Axel and this is my story....

It all started when I was 13 I started hanging out with a new group I started smoking and by 14 I had ran away from home. At 15 I had a serious drinking problem so bad that people where embarrased to be seen with me . I used to drink so much that I would black out . I would drink anything and everything I could get my hands on even if I didn't like it. I was skipping school getting bad grades everything. I used to go to parties wake up the next morning embarrased because peopel would tell me about all the things that happened the night before. Then it happened someone I had just seen 3 days ago died in a drunk driving accident when I was just 15, and you would think that would've woken me up but no.... So awhile later I go to this one party my sophmore year ?and I was eithier 15 or 16 and I was so drunk that people actually thought I was gonna die and they were praying for me and then the next morning when i woke up I heard what I had done and found out that I had stop breathing that night 5 times .... Well that , that was it for me and I still struggle with urge to drink but im getting by and I feel better for staying away from it and yes I might have a glass at a special occassion but thats it. So if I can do it you can do it too!
