Former addict shares experience from prison cell to business owner.
Rochester, NY (PRWEB) February 19, 2014
From an addictive and crime ridden past, author Michael Tandoi knew his life story could inspire others to overcome their share of problems.
Tandois life of drug addiction quickly spiraled out of control when he was 27. His addiction led to a seven-year prison sentence. During his stay in prison, Tandoi battled his demons and finally became sober.
Three years and the death of his father made him realize that his past held him back from becoming the man he ought to be. In order to move on, he knew he had to accept his failures and work to rebuild his relationship with God.
The inspiration behind telling his story came from his weekly phone call with his aunt, Bonnie Travaglini. She encouraged Tandois idea to write his story as a way to help him cope and hopefully motivate others battling similar issues in the future.
My constant hope is that the story will help even just one person, Tandoi said.
Tandois new book, The Man I Was Destined to Be, chronicles his life through his extensive drug addiction and his life-changing incarceration.
