I'm taking part in a sponsored walk for The Living Room, which already has a special place in my heart. It has allowed me to put my old unhealthy life down, to give me the space to feel what I have been medicating myself from and supported me to choose a healthier way of life for myself, with a clear and mindful mind. 

I am a grateful addict. I couldn’t have said that five weeks ago when I sat at my first group therapy within the rooms of the living room. I am somehow clean and sober today and I have hope for my life today. I can see my life for what it truly is and was. I am working towards understanding my addictions and why and how they came about. I have a choice today and with that choice I can breathe. All I ever wanted was to be able to sit in peace with a clear head and thanks to the living room I am able to do that ‘just for today’
