My puppy changed my life!

Created by Elijah Hunter

My puppy changed my life!

I have been using drugs and alcohol my whole life. I started at 12 and kept going through my teen years. In my early 20 's I started making meth and shooting ice. Life was on a downward spiral and I was sick. ?I always drank beer and switched from one drug to another. ?Went to prison at 23 for a drug related incident.. I got out and started on crack for the next 6 years until recentley I got a little King Charles Cavalier puppy . At the beginning of this year I stopped everything cold turkey for myself, but also I take care of my puppy all day while my partner of 13 years works. I kinda did it for the little guy. My puppy is the definition of innocence and needs me everyday for the rest of his life to take care of him. You do need a sober mind to walk a dog and be there for him to feed him and take care of his needs. It was time to stop being selfish and worry about what someone else needed for them and not me. Since being sober I have been able to get a car in my name and recently my partner and I have purchased a house and I am going to be part owner. I never thought I would own a house and car, but this is what happens when you stop lining drug dealers pockets with all your money. This is my story and how my puppy changed my life.
