Nov. 10, 2023 – It all started to come back to me. Not just how I got on the plane in yet another blackout but how I ended up here, at the lowest point of my life. It was a life full of new lows.

I was a 28-year-old drug addict, alcoholic, and thief. The money in my pocket was the only thing left from my family’s marine supply business I had bankrupted with a daily cocaine habit. It’s an easy habit when your best customers are smugglers.

It was easily the worst day of my life, but I would discover it was a life-changing day — the first of many. But before I could appreciate its impact, I had to return home to face the consequences of my actions.

When I returned from my blackout plane ride, I discovered that my father, my business partner, had figured out I had been stealing from our business. I didn’t think I could feel lower than I had on the plane, but meeting with him was terrible.
