Hi to everyone at COAP! I hope you are all healthy and well.
For those who don't know me I'll do a mini-intro... I'm Ash, I'm nearly 28 and live in a little village on top of a mountain in North Wales, not too far from Chester. I've been a mentor here at COAP but had to take a break earlier this year due to boring stuff taking up most of my spare time (studying and work!). Like many of you I also grew up with a parental addiction, although I'm very fortunate that with support and lots of will power my mum has made a recovery and has now been sober for a number of years. I've been working in specialist children's services for over 6 years and I like to use my personal experiances to drive me to do the work that I do! I'm also a quite a nerd/geek, like lots of different music and general like to be a big kid when I can get away with it!
So in a nutshell that's me! To those who do know me.... hello again! Honestly I've really missed all of you guys and being on the message boards, so I'll be reading up and replying again!
