Sue's story - I was a binge drinker for 30 years
My name is Sue and for the last thirty years I have been a binge drinker! I had emotions I couldn't handle so I drank. As the years passed the binges got closer turning my life into a rollercoaster of anxiety, guilt, shame and a complete lack of self-confidence and self-esteem. I felt worthless! My children lost their security and the chaos I caused was inconceivable!
How Linwood Helped
Two years ago I booked into Lynwode, full of trepidation and fear, but it turned out to be the best day of my life! For the first time I sat and opened up with a counsellor and knew I was actually being listened to and not judged. You have to be open, honest, and willing and the time you spend at Lynwode will give you the foundation you need to build a future beyond your wildest dreams.
There was always someone there to talk to, to educate you on how to understand yourself and for the first time I realised what emotions were because before that I had just drank on them to numb the pain! I came out of Lynwode actually liking myself.
Life after Linwood
I now have a life that is strong and honest. My relationship with my children is growing by the day and I am also involved with my grandchildren, which 2 years ago would definitely not have happened.
So, Lynwode gave me back my life and I only wish I had gone there sooner, but this has been my journey and I have grabbed it with open arms.
