How is life today?
Today, life is better in every aspect. Mentally, life in recovery can be tough but I’m able to cope using the tools I’ve learnt to apply from the Freedom Recovery Programme, groups, staff and peer support. Physically, I’ve surpassed any expectation of where I could get to in a fitness sense and my health in general.
When I first came to the Project, I’d struggle to climb a flight of stairs without getting short of breath. Now, I’m running half marathons thanks to the Couch to 5K programme which is part of the Basement’s wider social activity schedule. I’ve now been offered the opportunity to help others achieve their fitness goals by coaching through the weekly Couch to 5K regime.
