As a recovered alcoholic and drug addict she has personal experience of what it takes to recover from an addiction. Veronica struggled with alcoholism through most of her twenties, as a binge drinker she was aware for sometime that something was wrong but was unable to define what it was, a chance meeting led to her finally getting help and turning her life around. In the height of addiction Veronica was unable to go to work without the aid of a drink, although never a daily drinker her life and confidence were in tatters. She now uses this experience to help and inspire others, she fully believes that all alcoholics and addicts can recover if they have access to the right kind of help they can then go on to live 100% lives free from addiction.
