I was 13 when I first started drinking alcohol, I did it because I watched everyone else in my family drink every day after work and into the night. It moved onto drinking after school with my mates. From there it spiraled out of control. Drinking before, during and after school, I was 17. I was known as the go to guy to get alcohol, I liked the attention and thought that I had a huge group of friends, turns out I was being used and none of those people are known to me today. I have been in trouble with the law, stealing, abusive language towards people and the cops, not to mention my daily functioning. It affected my job prospects, no one wanted to employ a person defendant on alcohol. I'm 32, I have been seeing the counselling people at DRUG Arm for a while now and they have helped me turn my life around in conjunction with family support.
I have been abstinent for over 6 months now and feeling great. I am no longer on government financial support. I have a full time job where my employer is supportive of my treatment goals and DRUG Arm appointments. I am so grateful for the support networks around me and the positivity that they give towards me and my goals.
