Crystal is 35 years of age and is no longer a poly-drug user. She is now a non-smoker and no longer drinks alcohol. She has a 6-year-old daughter, who she now has regular contact with and is in the process of putting plans in place for her to come home, with the support of her Mum.
The world is a much less painful and stressful place for Crystal now as she has learned techniques to control her stress and anxiety. She has also done a lot of trauma release work and has been able to start healing and moving on from her past. Crystal has made a couple of new friends from our facebook group, who she feels really understand her and as they are all on the journey together, they are able to support and motivate each other. She doesn’t feel alone anymore. She has cut contact with “the old crew”, so is no longer surrounded by the temptation to slip back into the old ways of living.
Crystal now feels more in control of her life and is far better equipped to function on a day-to-day basis, without the need for drugs and drink. She simply doesn’t want them anymore. She knows there is more to life.
Crystal no longer needs or wants to feel numb. She feels confident. She feels capable. She feels happy. Crystal accepts what has happened in the past and she accepts herself. She is excited at the prospect of her daughter coming home in the near future and wants to make up for lost time. She has done all this work for herself and her little girl. She is actually looking forward to the future now.
