"Recovery has given me that, to be able to see the good in things, in other people, and in the opportunities in my life."
"Recovery taught me how to think differently, live differently, make better decisions."
"I have a sense of meaning that I wouldn't have had, had I not embraced recovery."
"I have this past where I could have ended up dead or in jail, and now I've really turned my life around."
"It was either get help or die. I chose to live, get help, and try a different way."
"I know how to live through that stuff man, I know how to be okay with myself, and I didn't know how to do that before."
"It's harder for me to identify with someone that's a little bit older, instead I've got a bunch of kids around my age and we're all helping each other."
"It's not too early, it's never too early to get into recovery."
"I found some mutual support groups that helped me connect with other young people in recovery and helped me understand what was going on in me."
"Being sober for the majority of my twenties has really enabled me to be able to do a lot of things that I would not have been able to do."
