Stacey's story

Hey everyone.. I would just like to start by saying thank you to Matt who has kindly said he would share my story ❤️

For over 10 years I drank alcohol abusively wether I was stressed, depressed, thinking about the trauma that had happened in my life I would reach for any alcohol bottle to numb how I was feeling because at that time I thought it was helping how wrong was I????

My days went from bad to worse none of my family would talk to me because I just always became abusive and they was tired of it!

The countless sorry’s then I would just keep on doing it so they did tough love and stopped contacting me.

I was getting arrested for crimes I would never dream of doing, I was put in mental health secure unit on multiple times, numerous attempted suicidal overdoses and yet this still didn’t stop me!!

In 2019 was when I really hit ROCK BOTTOM!!!! This was last time I ever used alcohol!!!!

I couldn’t hit any more rock bottom if I tried I was once again placed in mental health care unit and once I had sobered up reality hit like ton of bricks and I couldn’t do it anymore I didn’t wanna be in that dark place no longer!!!

So as soon as I was discharged I made promise to myself, my son and my family and friends that this is gonna change did they believe me course not and who blames them after I said it so many times but this time I did and I referred myself straight into a alcohol service called RESET and every other possible service that was available.

I put every bit of my strength into recovery I did group work, counselling, one to one sessions, acupuncture, women groups, family groups. I needed to do this for my life to change I graduated from all 3 groups which were change, growth and life group.

Going into recovery was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do but also the best as recovery has changed my life dramatically, I’m now discharged from my alcohol service and I’ve met the most nicest people ever who are now like family to me 😊 I have amazing bond with all my family and most importantly my son is with me living a happy life.

I AM NOW 2 YEARS and 4 MONTHS SOBER 🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩

Thank you for reading my story ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
