I grew up in a fairly large family; there were seven of us. We lived with my Mom, who cared for us and made the most out of what little we had. She drank and partied on the weekends, so I was exposed to alcohol early on in life. I tried marijuana and opium at age twelve but felt it was a waste of time and money. I would not indulge until later in life. It wasn't until age seventeen, when I started attending college, that I began indulging in all kinds of immoral behavior.
