“The staff convinced me that I did have a reason to live”L
”I did not deserve to live… that’s how I felt all the time. But the staff are brilliant at listening, and when they’d done that, they would keep reminding me that my three girls needed me… It took me the first three months just to clear my head, deal with all those bad feelings and see that there was hope for me. The next three months helped me to plan a life back in the community, without alcohol… It can be done, y’know – to lead a sober and happy life. Rehab saved me and gave me the courage to get on with doing just that.”
