How I Turned My Life Around.Hi i'm Toby Stevens,
I'm a 14 year old boy who likes to have a good time but i started to take a good time too far. I started doing drugs and drinking and going out and generally being rebellious. I liked the life i had with my friends but i hated the one i had with my family. My life got to the point where i couldn't go out anymore and it was very depressing because the only happiness i had was with my friends because my family and I didn't get along. I then was sent to America to a wilderness therapeutic programme called, 'Red Cliff Ascent'. That place helped me a lot and i did a lot of good things for myself and it didn't just help me but it helped my family too. After 90 days in the desert i came home and got sent to boarding school, i wasn't happy i couldn't see my family who i just made up with. That really hurt me but then i realised that what doesn't kill you can only make you stronger. Now i am finding it hard in the real world but i'm sure like in the desert i will come out the other side happy and healthy.
