“I have suffered from Depression, Anxiety and Anger Issues since I was 10 and I am also an alcoholic and various other addictions.
I have struggled all this time with finding the right therapist and help that I needed until the beginning of this year.
I was in therapy 3-4 days a week for 9 months and had to leave my job as I couldn’t get out of bed. I hit my rock bottom on 24th May 2015 and I have been sober since 25th May 2015.
Hitting my bottom has really helped throw me fully into recovery and getting my life back on track.
I will be (touch wood!) 7 months sober on Christmas Day which will be difficult but I am loving life sober and happy. I’ve just done my dream cooking course and am back in the kitchen cooking.
I am hoping to inspire and help other sufferers to use cooking as a coping mechanism as it has helped me so much.
If you’re struggling, keep going, there IS a light at the end of the tunnel, no matter how long that tunnel is. Stop.Think.Breathe.”
