In his video, Phil is celebrating 1 year of sobriety. He has been on a long recovery journey, having been in rehab in the 90s. When he was drinking most, he was running his own business and stuck in a cycle of working and drinking, working and drinking. When he found Forward Leeds he went through rehab and has taken a different approach to his recovery. He is not rushing back into full time work and has a strong support network around him. He has become more confident and now thinks ‘The only thing to fear, is fear itself’.
