I experienced tough times a number of years ago when I was taking drugs to get me through the day. I am now drug free and would not be here if it was not for a very supportive family. It is so important to talk to others about your issues.

I was heavily involved in gambling several years ago. I was at rock bottom and without the support of a few close friends who listened and supported me, things would be so much worse. I now do not gamble at all.

I was too macho to speak to anyone, or admit that I had mental health problems. Alcohol and drugs too normal, too accepted in this industry. If there was a charity out there, my family life would not have suffered. The stigma, especially for men not speaking up, must be broken. It is the responsibility of the employers too, to support their staff within this industry.
