Getting clean is a tough process, but Mike says the most difficult part hasn't been the physical effects. "The hardest part for me, in the beginning it was just being away from my family," he says. "But we were never really there anyway."
Mike says that five months is the longest he's ever been clean, and he's confident that this time it's for good. "I discovered God really, by looking at myself," he says. "Now I have a set of principles that I live by and I know things that are true, and you can't take those away from me."
