“That is not something I thought I would ever say at the age of 21.

“However, by 21 (nearly 22) I never thought I would’ve been through half of what I have.”

Holly revealed earlier this year she left university after her first year because she was admitted to the Nightingale Hospital.

She was diagnosed with PTSD, anxiety and depression.

“I chose to take a break from alcohol because it wasn’t improving my mental health – which for me, comes first,” Holly continued.

I made a decision to take control of what I could.

“This time last year I was at my lowest and I was scared but I made a decision to take control of what I could. And that meant removing alcohol from my life.”

Holly acknowledged her decision was neither easy nor taken lightly but she was “grateful” to not “mask her feelings (good and bad) with a drink”.

She added: “Alcohol and antidepressants do not mix well at all. And that is something, unfortunately, I learned the hard way.”
