I used to live in constant fear and have huge resentments against everyone. I tried covering up my shame and guilt with arrogance.

I was suffering from low self-worth which I compensated with grandiosity. My relationships with my wife, son and parents were totally broken. I was constantly changing jobs. I lost touch with my values and God.

 

Thanks to Hope Trust, I have come to terms with myself. I now know the tools to stay sober and my relationships shall hopefully improve. Finally, there is hope. I now go to bed without guilt or shame and wake up without a hangover. I look forward to the joys of a new day every day.

 

All this was possible only because of the 'tough love' I got at Hope Trust. I shall always be grateful and will come back each year to express my gratitude.
