I Can Look Forward to the Future Without Needing Drugs or Alcohol to Survive
I was born in Exeter, Devon.
My life before I started doing drugs was very good, very happy. Perfect really.
One of the happiest moments in my life I can remember before I started doing drugs was playing football.
I started using drugs when my football career took a turn for the worse and I got released from Exeter city as a 16 year old and turned to drink and drugs.
Drugs made me lose my kids, my girlfriend, my father.
I was at rockbottom and I couldn’t see a way out and I would have ended up in either in jail or dead.
I was very vulnerable and anxious on arrival, I found the staff very welcoming, friendly, caring, in general, very supportive.
The detox helped me release all the bad toxins in my body, enabling me to almost sweat out all the drugs that I had taken in my life. The objectives helped me to gain control and be more patient, whereas before, I was quite erratic and didn’t think before I acted. And the life skills helped me to let go of all the wrongs I had done in my life and to realise where it all went wrong for me.
I feel very excited, very happy, and very proud about graduation.
“I look forward to Making amends, building some of those bridges that I had burnt, rebuilding my relationship with all my loved ones and just enjoying a drug free life.”
I look forward to making amends, building some of those bridges that I had burnt, rebuilding my relationship with all my loved ones and just enjoying a drug-free life.
My proudest accomplishment is completing the programme, sticking it through, sticking it out.
My relationship with my family now is better. I feel I’ve earned a lot of respect for coming to Narconon to better my life.
My favorite thing about being drug-free now is that my head space is much clearer, and I can look forward to the future without needing drugs or alcohol to survive.
The advice I would give to someone who is in active addiction now is that the first step is to admit that you have a problem and don’t be afraid to leave it all behind.
