Jenelle Evans Makes Some Major Life Steps in the RIGHT Direction for Once

jenelle evans, nathan griffith, teen momRole model. Those aren't two words I ever thought to be using in conjunction to describe Jenelle Evans. But time has a way of changing things, and people too. Jenelle's come a long way since she first appeared on our radars as a pregnant teenager. It hasn't been an easy road. God knows there were some bumps along the way. By bumps I mean "drugs" and "awful boyfriends."

But if social media is anything to go by (and very often, it isn't), Jenelle is turning a corner. First she and boyfriend Nathan Griffith posed in a series of family-style portraits. Then she pops up on Twitter to say that she just wants to live a drama-free life. Could this be the start of a newer, more mature Jenelle?

It might be! Recently, Jenelle announced that's she's given up both cigarettes and booze! Say whaaat? Say that. Yeah, she's tried to quit smoking before, but who knows maybe this time it will stick. I was a smoker for *cough* amount of years (no joke, I actually was coughing). It took five attempts at quitting to shake that monkey off my back. If she can do it -- power to her.

That said, she's being pretty vocal about all these big changes for the better she's making. Is this just another phase Jenelle's going through? Of course we hope not, but it seems likely. Jenelle's personality changes depending on whom she's dating. Who's to say that if she and Nathan split, she won't trip into a free-fall? It's all well and good that's she making the effort on the surface -- but will it last in the long-term?

Do you think Jenelle's finally on the right path?

Jenelle's upbringing wasn't good at all, and her mother is a beast. She's not the best mom but she's trying her best. She has bipolar and trying to work, go to school, and take care of the son her mother uses to fight with Jenelle. I'm rooting for her.

Lets hope. She has been with this guy and had a very un eventful relationship with him for a long time (for her anyways) so maybe that's a real good sign.

Ktobin2 I agree. Her mom is horrible. Jenelle is a product of how she was raised. Now, I'm not saying that Barbara is responsible for all of Jenelle's bad behavior but she certainly plays a big role in her bad attitude. I really wonder what Jenelle's formative years were like? People don't become so out of control without some kind of justifiable cause. I truly hope that Jenelle gets her stuff together and becomes a better mother to her son, for her own sake and her sons. In 10-20 years she is going to look back on the first years of his life and be ashamed of herself.

I for one aint buying it. She has told us all before she was off drugs only to be arrested a few days later. Her and her ugly man were arrested for DUI not that long ago. She is just doing what she is good at. Make believe. Maybe if I pretend hard enough they will believe. Well I for one don't

ok?? 3 days isnt shit, and I"m sure she is lying like usual, I dont believe a word that comes out of jenelle's mouth in fact I think she is still drinking, smoking weed and cigarettes and doing hardcore drugs! jenelle is a druggie and always will be!! drugs, drinking, partying, and guys are more important than her son and jenelle will never change!!

Yes, everyone grows up and I believe she was experiencing some bad growing pains. I did much of the same as she did at the same ages, I was exactly her age when I pulled my head out of my butt. I am now 37 and it was all lessons learned. I look back on those times and don't regret anything it made me who I am
