"Its good to be able to talk"

About: Inclusion Recovery Hampshire / New Forest

(as a service user),

I am an alcoholic. I started to drink more and more when I lost my mum to cancer. (Vodka) Big bottle every day. I got so bad drinking I lost the trust of my family. I would hide my empty bottles. I live alone, so my family and friends stopped visiting me. I started to go to Inclusion group. Talking helped me realise I was not on my own, I also had counselling with a guy called Simon. Then I decided I will stop drinking. I could not be told by other people but Simon helped me realise how much better my life can be (he was right). I have not drank for 39 days.

I keep to my meetings and feel good and I see my family and friends, its great. I know I still got a long way to go but its good to be able to talk to someone and have help.

Thank you so much for taking the time to feedback, I'm so pleased the groups and counselling was helpful in supporting you to achieve your goals.

I will ensure that Simon is also aware how helpful he was during this process.

Kind regards
