Story

“So those that know me know I love my wine!! Never without a glass at events or even on the couch! However people don’t realise that people often turn to alcohol or drugs to numb the pain in their heads and that quickly becomes a coping mechanism that’s turns into addiction. I too have been there. But recently due to various lifestyle changes and support from family and true friends I feel so much better. So I want to give something back. Now this may seem easy for most people but this is going to be a real challenge for me! I want to raise money for suicide crisis in hope that at least one life is saved. Winter months have a significant higher suicide rate and we need to stop it all! 

I have experienced the feelings and I have lost both a mother and a partner to that monster that controls the mind and makes you feel like there is no way out. It’s terrifying!

So please help support me and this amazing charity and donate just a small amount. It’s the small steps consistently that make the big changes. 

You may wonder how you will know if I’ve kept my word and not had any alcohol during October so I will be posting breath test results live every midday and every  night before bed. I also have an 11 year old little spy 🕵️‍♀️ 

Thank you for reading my story and I hope you can help!
