I became homeless because of alcohol and legal highs.
I've been having panic attacks and bad anxiety since I was 17. I have depression. I used to drink to block out the anxiety, and take legal highs to lift my depression.
It meant me losing jobs, and my home.
I now know exercise is the best thing for depression. That's why football, and all sports activities, are important to me.
When I move into my own place, I'll still carry on with the weekly football sessions through the hostel because I love it.
