1 Year Later and The Road to Success that Began at Narconon A little over a year ago, I was making the trip to Narconon to begin my journey towards a drug-free life and I was terrified. I had just left everything behind. My job, my girlfriend, my house, my life.
2 Years Since Coming to Narconon Suncoast, 2 Years Drug-Free! Before coming to Narconon Suncoast, my longest stint of ‘sobriety’ was 6 months. Previous efforts to get clean involved going to treatment without ever handling anything about my addiction or why I chose to use drugs in the first place .
Six months ago, I completed the Narconon Program at Narconon Suncoast. My progress has been constantly changing as I have progressed through many different stages of sobriety .
I would like for everyone to picture a house, a very ordinary house, a house where there should have been happiness and a house where dreams could be realized. Instead, this was a house of sadness, a house where dreams struggled to survive. Mine did, however, as I dreamed that one day, I would find out who I really was and how to live a clean and sober life.
The decision I made to come to Narconon Suncoast was the best decision I have made in my life. Before coming to Narconon, my life consisted of bad choices, lies and deceit, irresponsibility, and an addiction that was going to continue to destroy my life if I did not do something about it. I was broken. Truly broken.
For the majority of my 30’s, with every birthday that added a number to my age, came a sadness of another year passed in a sinking ship. A life once filled with promise and potential falling further and further into the dark abyss of addiction.
At last, I knew I could push through it and stay sober for good. After 60 days had passed, I felt more alive than I had in years, since before my addiction began. By 90 days...
A New Life I Cannot Wait to Live! Well, I never thought I would be here. I did it. I fully completed the Narconon Program! Throughout the program, I had various ups and downs, but each step of the way really gave me something new and useful to build off.
I grew up in a loving family who all supported me through anything I did. My childhood and early teen years were normal for the most part. When I got to high school, I found myself at a crossroads.
August 3, 2018 is the day that I decided to change my life and put an old habit behind me for good. This habit was abusing drugs and alcohol to try and feel happy about the person I was .
