"I grew up in a family where most of us used to drink. I would at times get drunk with my dad and that's how I became an addict.

However, on the fateful day, Joseph went out with his father, drunk a couple of bottles. When he woke up in the morning, he thought his dad was sleeping only to find out that he had died in his sleep. For this reason, he said that he tried as hard as he could Untill he started his journey on being sober since his father's death was never explained.
