Misty has been through hell and back several times. She started drinking at a young age and by age 13 she was a daily meth user. Her first day of high school she was raped. She got pregnant and lost her baby and because she refused to tell the school principal why she had missed school she was kicked out of school. That led to more destructive behavior. She was in several relationships where she was abused and assaulted. She was sober on and off for a few years.  After a suicide attempt she decided she had to stop or she was going to die. Listen to Misty's story of survival and how she has stayed sober for 16 years.
