New Year’s resolutions have more than likely been the main topic of discussion in a lot of your group chats over the past few days, but change isn’t always as easy as it seems, particularly if you are struggling with an addiction.

Changing your habits is often tough. Enlisting the support of people with your best interests at heart may help you change. Their encouragement can be a boost along the way, and they can give you the praise you deserve as you reach your milestones.

It is also important to seek professional help. This may feel like a big step but, with support, it is possible to unlearn patterns of behaviour.

Solihull Integrated Addiction Service (SIAS) is here to help you, no matter how difficult your life has become. Talk to us as soon as you can on 0121 301 4141 or email
