Tell us about yourself

I am 35 years old. I was born in Liverpool and am 1 of 5 children. I was taken into care at the age of 11 by social services for one year before my aunty came and took me home to live with her family in Norris Green, Liverpool. My mum was a heavy drinker, and my dad was a heroin user; from there on, I was left to my own devices, and from the age of 14, I was involved with police and drug dealing. I changed my life seven years ago; it started at Clouds House rehab.
