Hello, my name is JJ. I reached out to Break Free as a last ditched attempt to turn my life around. I’d known I had a problem for years but my addiction kept me from admitting it even to myself.

In September 2022 my mental health reached an all time low and I tried to take my own life. I was that desperate to escape the misery in my own mind.

Thankfully through a series of very lucky events, I survived and in November 2022 I found Break Free.

I committed myself 100% to the program and tried to take in as much information as I could.

The results came so quickly!

Within weeks my mental health was in the best place it had ever been. My relationships with my friends and family were in the best place they’d ever been and my life turned around.

My life has improved in every way possible, I’m happy, I’m reliable, I have my passion and ambition back. But most of all, I have peace in my mind.

This is all thanks to this amazing program and I couldn’t be prouder of the fact I’m now able to give back and help people to escape that hell that I existed in for so long!

I’m proud to have beaten my addiction, got my life back on track and remained part of a programme as a volunteer.
