Always chasing the next high – that’s what my life was like up until I made the choice to get sober. YOLO was my theme song and I thought I was living every day to the fullest, but I was wrong. It’s only now that I’ve chosen to live the sober life, that I get to enjoy every moment and live my most authentic self each day.”
