Despite taking the fight to the addiction I have also suffered from depression which has been magnified by the loss of my long term partner and more recently, the loss of my job through redundancy.
Three years ago I was lucky enough to spend 3 weeks in New Zealand. And have wanted to return ever since. That 3 weeks was the happiest I'd ever been.
In an ideal world I'd pack my bags and book a flight today, however with no job for the past two months I simply haven't the funds.
I believe getting back out to New Zealand will help me achieve the inner peace I've always been missing and hopefully allow me to return home with a clearer view on what I wish to achieve with my life.
