I am so happy about the little things in life that I didn’t get to truly experience when I was on drugs, such as watching movies with my sister, listening to new types of music, going on car rides with friends, and my most favorite, going to the beach. While these all may sound like little things people do every day, now I am able to fully enjoy every moment.
It feels extremely empowering to do the right thing. My family, friends, and Narconon family are proud of me, and I am so excited to graduate and really start living again, clean and sober!
I am so excited to go home and start this next chapter of my life, sober! I am also super stoked to be a grandma! The staff and all my new friends here are amazing people. I am grateful and blessed to have gotten the opportunity to come here and graduate from this program.
In the past, I would think back and say, if I could go back in time, I would do this and that differently or I would not do that again. Thanks to Narconon, now I am thinking forward and telling myself I will never do drugs again.
I am so excited to graduate and look forward to being with my children. The fact that they know their mom didn’t give up on them will speak volumes on how important they are to me and how important I am to myself.
I knew it was going to be hard, especially at the beginning, but I knew that if I stuck it out, I would feel great in the end. I absolutely do!
So much can change in three years. Celebrating my third Thanksgiving since leaving addiction behind and achieving a drug-free life, I have so much to be thankful for this year.
My sense of responsibility and my self-determinism are functioning once more and producing new purposes. I have the intention to create my life with true friends.
I am now able to be calm without drugs while being kind and respectful to others, especially my family. I feel amazing and know my life has changed for the better. I enjoy life so much more now that I am sober. I am looking forward to being with my family, spending time with friends, and just life in general now that I am drug-free.
Recovery is a journey. Here I take a look at many of the different phases a person can experience while living a life free from drugs and alcohol, from where it all begins all the way to long-term recovery.
