Fresh Start

Breaking a habit is difficult – whether it’s smoking, shopping, gambling or drinking. But, a bit like losing weight, it’s easier with the support of others who are going through the same thing.

Fresh Start is an eight-week course from Christians Against Poverty, specially designed to help people break addictive habits. Individual support is also provided as part of the course where requested.

Cookie says this about Fresh Start:

Cookie - portrait"Anyone whose compulsive behaviours and/or dependencies are getting in the way of living life to its fullest will benefit from this course. As a Christian, I want my thoughts to be in line with God. Whatever it is that you put all of your thoughts and actions into, that’s what will grow. A fresh start is like Spring starting all over again, it’s a fresh start to build healthier behaviours, healthier relationships and a healthier you. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

“When faced with issues in life that are sometimes difficult, we can either bury our head in the sand, pretending it’s not happening, or we can acknowledge it, look at it and try to do some things to change. If you don’t start from somewhere, you’ll never get anywhere. The beauty of ‘Fresh Start’ is that it helps you to look at these issues, together in groups, on your own at home, and/or over the phone. In my experience, my dependencies are and were much worse on my own and in my own head. As I said, there is everything to gain!”
