Caution: Stop alcohol abuse says FF

10 Mar,2016Working on Fire

Everson Ngondo a father of two at the Maporeng Team in Gauteng said that alcohol abuse nearly drove him to the brink of facing serious financial woes.

The 32 year old participant broke his silence on alcohol abuse to caution young people as it is one of the major problems facing young people in the programme.

Talking to WoFire News, Ngondo said that his alcohol abuse tore his family apart.

‘‘My wife left me because I failed to manage finances and spent a big chunk of my money on alcohol. I did not listen to my wife. I was heading to get credit from loan sharks which is not a good idea,’’ said a remorseful Everson.

He said he would spend R500 on weekends only on alcohol. ‘‘I paid a hefty price when my wife left me and I was unable to care for our kids. It nearly destroyed my life and I was going on the path of being an addict,’’ he said.

Everson last drank alcohol in November and is warning his colleagues against alcohol abuse. “To my fellow colleagues let us be responsible enough and care for our beloved ones,’’ he said.
