Sadness to Finding My Answer and Making My Dreams a Reality
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. Every day that I woke up in this house, on the days I actually went to sleep, I asked God for a way out of this house of my own making. But every day continued to feel just like the day before, the getting and using of crack cocaine.
“Every day was a struggle not to give up hope that I would find the help I needed, the support I needed, and the love of someone else because I did not love myself enough to stop on my own.”
Every day was a struggle not to give up hope that I would find the help I needed, the support I needed, and the love of someone else because I did not love myself enough to stop on my own. Fortunately, I found enough love for myself to seek help. Every day I searched the internet looking for a different, special, and unique place that would help me find my way back into the world of not just the living but of the “healthy of body, mind, and soul” living.
Then one day while looking on the web, I came across the Narconon Suncoast website, decided to open up the chat icon on the site, and a guy named Justin began telling me about Narconon. Justin explained how each phase of the program was drug free, meaning I would not be using other drugs to come off drugs. I began having conversations on my phone with Justin, he answered all my questions and made the process of getting enrolled at Narconon one that made me feel wanted. He did not judge me but instead shared his story of recovery with me. I did not feel alone.
When I arrived at Narconon Suncoast, I was made to feel like I was at home and apart of something clean, which is exactly what I wanted to feel like on the inside. Throughout my program, I first learned who I did not want to be, which then allowed me to work on who I wanted to become. This program allowed me to find the one true answer I had been searching for all my life, why did I do drugs? I found that answer. Narconon gave me back my dreams to succeed, my dreams to excel as a human being. Now I can turn those dreams into my reality!
