I Was Told "Once an Addict Always an Addict"   PDF  Print  Email 

I was told, "Once an addict, always an addict."

There is nothing further from the truth.

Prior to my arrival at Narconon, I was falling in a downward spiral towards a point of no return.

Over the years, I turn to marijuana, cocaine, and alcohol under a false belief it would allow me to escape my problems.

It just made things worse.

I had everything, a good job, money, a loving family, yet I felt so empty inside. As if I had nothing.

Over 20 years of using, I keep saying to myself, I going to stop permanently after using this last time. It never happened. There were even moments I had thought of giving up on life. Does this sound familiar?

The cons and cost of a short lived high far outweighed the pros of using.

Procrastination, betrayal, isolation, lost of trust, criminal acts, jail, lost of self esteem, depression, hatred, irresponsibility, poverty, humiliation, and helplessness.

This list goes on. Is this the thrill in getting high? Is it worth it?

The day I arrived at Narconon was a day of renewed hope.

Just when I thought my road in life had just come to an end, Narconon was a new beginning.

I gave the program 110% of myself, and I have never been happier in life.

My body was detoxed of all impurities, I live in present time and I do handle real world problems in real time.

Equally important, I behave ethically towards others and myself, creating new working relationships which are totally productive and pro survival.

As a Narconon Graduate today, I control my life and my world instead of outside influences controlling me.

I have never been so at peace with myself.

I confront all of life problems as they occur, and I handle them accordingly with different levels of priorities, without blowing them out of proportion.

It is so empowering and amazing to do so.

I don't procrastinate any longer. Issues I haven't resolved in years, I am completely wrapping up in less than six months since I've been home.

Wow! I have rebuilt a loving relationship with my family and friends, and they are all so proud of me. It's a strange and fantastic feeling when I was accustomed to being scorned by them. That's deep.

I am consistent in all I do, the goals I strive for, and in my day to day responsibilities.

I have found a loving relationship with the girl of my dreams which I couldn't ever imagine having before.

I am finally moving on towards a career I have always dreamed of for the past 20 years.

I feel so joyful and my mental clarity is beyond belief. I have my confidence, health, and sense of youth back. I feel so ALIVE and I am living my life to the fullest!

Thank you Narconon!

Remember, based on my own experience, on average, at least 80% my problems in life were contributed to drug and alcohol use, imagine what you could do with all of your extra time!

Always believe in yourself.

Best Wishes. - L.M. Narconon Brazil Graduate from New Jersey.
