and had an amazing family and many supportive friends,
his unhealthy responses to life took their toll.
In August of 2010, to the surprise of everyone but himself, Andrews attempted suicide. He woke up in the psych unit of a hospital with fourteen stitches on his wrists. A few days later, he made the most important decision of his life.
He wanted to live. He wanted to be well.
Choosing Life is the story of how he arrived at that conclusion and his ensuing journey toward health, contentment, and self-discovery.

The numerous stories Andrews conveys will be both relatable and beneficial, whether for yourself or someone you care about.
