During my addiction, I’ve been to hell and back, my life had gone completely off track.

All that I wanted was booze and crack, any lengths I would go to as long as I got that.

I fell deeply into the pits of despair not being able to see what was taking me there.

I lost my children, my life my soul, I was left with a heart with a huge gaping hole.

With what could I fill it, I just did not know, until I found rehab and then I felt at home.

With the 12 step programme and God in my life I now have hope that I will survive.
