Drugs, Alcohol & Relationships
“Narconon Suncoast not only gave me the tools to save my life, it also gave me the tools to fix my marriage & my relationships with my family. At the age of 15, I started drinking alcohol and doing drugs. More importantly, just before I started drinking or using, I let go of the moral and ethical codes that one should adhere to in order to have a happy life. As I became an adult, I found myself doing things that I knew were wrong, but I did them anyway. I then used drugs and alcohol to hide from how this unethical behavior made me feel.
“Looking at my life, I saw that I had always been behaving in a way that was actively destroying the relationships I was in because I didn’t have a clearly defined moral code that I was committed to. Once I got married, this pattern of behavior followed me into this relationship as well. Even though this was the most important relationship I had ever entered into, my actions still proved to be going against the survival of the relationship. Because of this, my drinking and drug use progressed into a new level of insanity. I couldn't sleep through the night. I would get up at 3 or 4 every morning drink some alcohol and try to go back to sleep. Once I woke up, I would continue drinking throughout the day. I was also abusing opiates; I was eating as many pills as I could get my hands on every day.
“This behavior brought me to a new place of desperation very quickly. My life was absolutely unmanageable and I didn’t really think that there was any way I could get myself out of the hole I had dug.
“When I went to Narconon Suncoast, this all changed. With each step of the program, I began to feel a bit more like I remembered feeling as a kid and I began to look at why I stopped feeling that way in the first place. As I continued to move through the program I started to become more aware of the things I had done to sabotage my life and my relationships. I was also able to find the cause of the departure from my ethics and happiness.
What I am most grateful for, is the ability this program gave me, which is to address and handle the root of the problems that I had been allowing to destroy my life. Completing the Narconon Suncoast program is the best thing I have ever done in my life! I was able to see that drugs & alcohol had not only been ruining my life, but they were also ruining my relationships and any hope for a happy future. I was able to understand how the use of drugs and alcohol promotes unethical behavior in life and make it almost ’acceptable’ for a person to do things that destroy relationships. With the tools I was given at Narconon Suncoast, I have been able to address every problem in my life. I was able to leave the program with the firm understanding that I can responsibly handle whatever life throws at me. I now have a clearly defined moral code that I am applying to all of my relationships and I am certain that from this point forward I can be an asset to every relationship I am involved in.
“Thank You, Narconon Suncoast!”
