But Adam learned after taking his first drink that alcohol could lure him into thinking it could take away his problems. He drank his way through college, barely graduating. After he finished school, he took jobs in nightclubs as he enjoyed the lifestyle and attention it brought him. But it wasn’t until he started working on Wall Street did he experiment with drugs.

Looking back after achieving sobriety, Adam is now amazed to be clean and married.
