a lot to go back to

A young man complains about life (in 1998).

"Life always seemed to me a pointless affair. And it's not like I have a lot to go back to."

I'm not sure to understand the last phrase.

    Indeed…:)
    Ai-je tort de comprendre qu'il veut dire qu'il n'a pas beaucoup d'antériorité en matière de vie et de désillusion (il est jeune). :confused:

    The way I understand it, his life wasn't very valuable to him.

    "Life always seemed to me a pointless affair. And it's not like I have a lot to go back to."

    Because he doesn't say "my life" it doesn't sound to me like he's talking about his former situation which he has left. It sounds like he's dead and doesn't much regret it.
