Recovery is challenging – but it is worth it

Often, poems can help lift spirits and focus on the important things in life. If someone is battling an addiction, a poem can help keep them focused and on track with their recovery journey. It can motivate a person towards action and to get help for their addiction. Sometimes a few encouraging words can remind a person that they’re not in this alone.

With that in mind, we would love if someone could write a poem about their journey for FAST. We will publish the best entry in our Annual Report due in May 2020 and offer a voucher towards a meal in the Trocadero in Dublin, to the value of €100 – FAST received this as a donation and we would love to offer it as a prize.

Send your entries via email to or via direct message here on Facebook

Closing Date is Friday 17th April 2020
