2015_06_01 interviewees11I was with my boyfriend for five years and we had a good relationship. We had a planned pregnancy and were looking forward to our future…until he started taking drugs. Things changed and his new friends began hanging around.

I stayed with him because I loved him, I knew the person he used to be and he told me he would end his addiction when our daughter was born. But his drug habit continued so when she was five days old I decided to leave.

I realised this wasn’t my life. I wasn’t one of them. So for the sake of my daughter I left to create a new life for both of us.
