After his first journey getting sober, Nick made it his mission to help others who were struggling with similar issues. He used his own life to show that it’s okay to be vulnerable and open about what you’re going through when it comes to addiction. 

In an article written for Chosen Magazine, entitled “The Deadliest Disease,” Nick wrote, “Taken from me was my ability to live. I was at war with my addiction and it was winning.” He writes about reaching such a low level that his “mind, body, and spirit were so diseased” that he “welcomed [his] own death.”
