“It has been difficult, but it has driven me to change some destructive habits, to motivate myself in different ways through learning distraction techniques and setting myself targets. I think this will always be a battle for me but I know now I can get help when I need it. I have recently passed a drug and alcohol test at work and am very proud of what I have achieved.”
