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 .
I did not grow up in a rich family that had money to waste, but I also did not grow up wanting for much either. I would say that I had a decent childhood and upbringing. Even so, I was still brought down the brutal path of addiction for almost 10 years, something that goes to prove that addiction does not discriminate against anyone.
A Life Once Robbed by Drug Addiction, Now Freed to Start Living Again Before I started using drugs, I was a kid with many hobbies. I liked to swim, play sports, and had a love for film and media. I was very passionate about what I did. My relationship with my family was always good.
Today I have reached the end of my program. Soon I will be leaving Narconon and returning to the life that I have for so long taken for granted and so many times attempted to destroy.
