Recovering drug addict, 27, who used heroin and cocaine looks unrecognisable after getting sober

A recovering drug addict has showed off her incredible transformation after getting clean from heroin and crack cocaine. 

Demi-Nicole Dunlop from Fochabers, near Elgin, in Scotland was addicted to Class A drugs for two years.

After taking the drugs everyday, Demi, 27, saw her skin flare up with acne and scabs and she was left looking gaunt with protruding bones from the drug use. 

But after receiving treatment, the student, who is now engaged, has been clean for four months and looks completely unrecognisable after having a Love Island-style makeover.

‘If you’re reading this and you’re in mid-addiction and you’re feeling you will never get out of that dark, scary, black, horrible daily cycle of addiction, that black hole, then you can.

‘Please please believe me.

‘I had a large scale habit and I thought there was never gonna be a light at the end of the tunnel and I found it.

‘It wasn’t easy, it wasn’t a walk in the park and it most certainly has been far from pleasant.

‘But please be reassured by me, that you can and you will become free of that dark black hole of addiction.

‘I know that feeling of thinking it’s impossible, I’m an example of it being possible.

‘I was absolutely terrified initially of making my story public as most of you are aware, but I’m very lucky in the aspect of having such great support and positive feedback, and so will you.’

Demi-Nicole – who is currently getting treatment in hospital as part of her continuing treatment – added: ‘Please feel free – I’ve made this post public – to share my story!
