I had a wonderful life before I started doing drugs. I was a very successful entrepreneur from age 15 in India. Then I started here in the UK with a number of successful businesses and we ran a number of businesses in food and drink, including food exports.
To those struggling with addiction now, you can make it to the other side. It is ok to be without drugs or alcohol in your life. The downward spiral is inevitable. I believe that Narconon is a programme of willingness. At the point of which you feel that you want to change, ask for help because I tried to do it on my own without expert advice, but it just went in circles, the addiction goes up and everything else goes down.
After using drugs and alcohol for 15 years and several failed attempts at rehab, I found the Narconon Programme. I used drugs and alcohol for 15 years, since the age of 13. At the age of 24, I decided to go into drug rehabilitation. My physical and mental condition was very bad and so I did...
