It’s been nine weeks since I last had a drink. Not so long ago I would drink two bottles of wine in one evening and would still want more. I used to limit myself to only drinking at weekends but this quickly led to wanting to drink most evenings. If I wasn’t drinking, having a drink would always be at the back of my mind. I’m ashamed to admit that there was a time I would smuggle alcohol in the house and to this day, I’m still finding empty bottles I stashed in places long ago. I would often go out and not remember how I got home. I’m just thankful that my friends looked after me and I was lucky that I only had the bruises to remind me of my drunken nights out.
At first I was a bit sceptical of seeing Rob, but once I got over the initial embarrassment and shame of confessing how much alcohol I was drinking, I began to relax. The calming atmosphere and his ability to put you at ease made me open up. Ever since seeing Rob, my cravings for alcohol soon diminished and now I don’t feel the need to drink. Whenever I would pass my local off licence I would buy a bottle of wine to drink at a later date, the thought now never crosses my mind.
My parents and all the people that know me and knew how much I drank have said how much better I look. I feel more relaxed and able to deal with life challenges. I am becoming more confident as weeks turn into months and I feel so much happier and content. If it hadn’t been for Rob I would probably still be drinking. I highly recommend Rob for all those people who perhaps feel cynical like I did. What have you got to lose? Thanks for all your support Rob
