My name is Terry and I’m proud to be part of this amazing team

I joined Break Free on the 2/2/22 and it was the best decision I ever made.

I walked into my first meeting broken. I didn’t know what I was walking into as I hadn’t done nothing like this before I didn’t have much hope. I couldn’t see how this was going to fix me.

For years I blamed it on my mental health, anxiety and depression without realising I had an addiction.

My addiction would use the fact that because I didn’t do it every day and only on a weekend, I was fine when I was far from fine!

I walked out of that first meeting and I knew what I had to do to beat this.

I know that choosing to never drink alcohol again will also mean that I will never touch cocaine again. It was a light bulb moment because for years I tried to stop cocaine on my own but every time I drank it lead back to using cocaine so that’s when I made the decision to quit drink and drugs forever.

Since then, my life has improved massively. The anxiety, depression and mental health issues have gone.

Life starts when you stop. Trust the process.

We’ve got this 👊🏼✌🏼💙
