My problem has been with me for years but came alive two and half years ago when work dropped off.
I had more time on my hands slowly the drink crept into the day time. After loosing six months of my life to this I thought it was time to quit. Two weeks later I did and had a seizure (never stop without advice). After a trip to the doctors they put me on antidepressants. The drink raised its ugly head again, after a few arguments with my wife I walked to the junction.
The junction put me on a programme, the staff were so helpful. If I took a step back they helped me to take three forward.
Over time the sky cleared, the drink stopped and things are now looking up.
I am working again, training to become a volunteer for the alcohol and drug service.
Don’t give up. I did it!!
