When I leave O&A I am going to do my best it what ever program I go to and stay off drugs also do everything in  my ability to be succesful to be happy and wise I will choose to make the right choices when I know something is wrong and I will work hard to get out of the system and stay out of it for myself and my family.

I am going to stop the addiction of the stuff I am doing also is to apoligize and to say sorry to my family.  Plus to be a good citizen and to love my family and to be more truthful.  Turn my life over.  Or got to my home and not the big house.
