“Life without alcohol is brilliant, it’s like a big fluffy world I have not seen before. I’m noticing things for the first time, smells, fresh air and I don’t feel isolated anymore. I used to drink to get more confidence but I don’t need it, all my confidence has come back without it. With alcohol you put on a mask. Addaction helps you take off the mask and become a real person, someone you can start liking and loving."
