A Short Story of Recovery

“About 10 days ago, I had called numerous help lines over 6weeks, trying to get some help. At the age of 38, I found myself with a family and for the first time RESPONSIBILITIES. I had a good life, new car on the drive, feeding ducks with family, working in London earning more money; but I felt less loved and less respected. Through my escalating drug use to numb the pain and fill the emptiness, happy families turned into Dungeons and Dragons and my marriage broke down, within 6months I had lost everything and hit rock bottom – so hard I couldn’t get up, I’m only just standing on two feet now. A phone call to EK MIND saved my life – lost in a 3 day bender her words cut through, like a red hot knife through butter. Thankfully I am now on the road to Recovery, taking responsibility for my life, my family, my career. ” D – Westgate on Sea.
