Now that I have completed the program, I am a responsible and reliable person. I have a newfound respect for others and myself, I learned to be patient and can’t wait to go back to being a proud mother to my two beautiful children.
I don’t know where I’d be if it weren’t for Narconon. However, I do know at this point what I can become because of Narconon.
I have learned that being productive is one of the best ways to overcome addiction.
My addiction had led me to complete isolation… sitting in bed 24 hours a day drinking and not bothering to eat or sleep. Even my hygiene had taken a back seat. The only person I spoke with was the cashier at the liquor store.
I was born in Spokane, Washington. I’m 33 years old. I had a good childhood growing up and was raised by my mom and dad. I am the oldest of four girls. My dad is retired from the Air Force and I grew up in a traditional military family. For the most part, I stayed out of trouble.
A major contributing factor to my newfound stability is learning to confront another person or situation while in this program. To master that has been the key mastery of self. Born of a different walk of life I would have been doomed to an existence of “social anxiety.”
Finally, after 13 years, I get to live my life. I am worth living a sober, happy life. To me everyone who struggles is worth that. I am excited to feel like an actual adult, and a productive person in society.
My time in the life skills portion of the program was the most valuable part of the program for me. I was able to get my trauma and past wrongdoings out on paper and feel a release I have never felt before. The things I have learned here at Narconon Suncoast are essential to my continued recovery.
I started this program and immediately started to see the benefits. Instead of just getting me off drugs, it actually allowed me to figure out why I was on drugs in the first place and make decisions objectively that will stick with me for the rest of my life.
I was able to re-establish communication with the people I love and respect and want to be surrounded by. I can confidently move forward with my life, clean and sober, and can say I am happy with myself and about life again.
