Desperate for an escape from life Tristan began experimenting with marijuana, then ecstasy, believing it was recreational and fun. Very quickly it all spiraled out of control to the point he was dealing illegal drugs. This led to a short stint in prison.
Experiencing the depths of despair, Tristan knew he had a serious decision to make. By the grace of God, after his release from prison in 1999 and with the help of a rehabilitation centre, he was determined to embrace a new life.
