As a youngster I enjoyed boxing and football. If I had continued with sports, I could have been a star, but you begin thinking of easier things and the bad habits start. From the age of 15, drunkenness caused me to throw away many of my years. The best lesson that life gives you is all that you lose: all that you leave behind because you choose friends when really, they have no reason to follow you. This is why I left alcohol behind; to escape all that disaster, I already couldn’t bear it any longer. The truth is, I respect alcoholics because they have a lot of strength.
