About: Helen Vale
Things that others may take for granted mean the world to me and that is because I recovered from addiction two years, six months and 36 days ago. Well, maybe I never really fully recovered, though the blessed day I stopped using cocaine, will always be present in my mind. I am a 32-year-old mother of two beautiful children – Harry, eight, and Lydia, six. I work in the financial sector as does my husband, Martin.
