Hooked on alcohol, cigarettes and heavily addicted to alcohol – that was the image of me coming to the UCKG HelpCentre for the first time.
I slept with anyone and didn’t care who the person was, but this outcome had an unfortunate beginning. It all started when I was eight-years-old, at an age when I could make no choices of my own. I suffered at the hands of a family member, which left me traumatised. As I got older, I craved sex and would do anything for it.
From the age of 18, I did things that I now regret – sleeping with people under bridges, at construction sites and in private bars. Overall, I dated three men and got involved with over 100 other partners.
My life was chaotic and I only had the chance to change it when I decided to take on the Israel Challenge. That was the start of a brand new life for me. There’s a huge difference between the man I am and who I was.
I don’t have any kind of addiction anymore; I now work for the presidency of a major bank in France, and I’m proud to say that I am engaged to my wife-to-be. I couldn’t miss out on such a valuable opportunity. It could be the start of something new for you.
