"I was a drug addicted, criminally inclined individual for 8 years "

About: Swansea Lhb

(as a service user),

I was a drug addicted, criminally inclined individual for 8 years between 14-22 years old.I tried many times to sort myself out but stumbled everytime, I had never grown up to become the man I was meant to be. My dad was absent from the age of 1 so I had no father figure to be my inspiration.

At 22 years old I was introduced to chooselife Cymru and they intervened in my life and directed me to a residential rehab in Birmingham where I stayed for two and a half years.

Now, 7 years on, thanks to chooselife and their staff I have a baby son, beautiful step daughter and a great wife.I have been self employed in landscaping and now work in substance misuse field.

I am a man who understands commitment, integrity and passion and now I have the ability to love.
