You Deserve to Live
Your Best Life, Sober
When I arrived at Narconon, I was out of jail and clean off heroin for a little over three months, so was unsure of how a program could do much of anything for me at that point. I had been to other rehabs before, and felt they were just to help someone get some clean time then send you packing.
I went into the sauna portion of the program as a bona fide skeptic. As time progressed, I began to feel my body flushing toxins out. I was thinking clearer, and my mind unclouded at the end of it. I could feel a difference in myself.
Then I went onto the objectives. Still a skeptic to some degree but less so after my experience in the sauna. Nevertheless, I fought it at first because it seemed dumb to me. Yet I discovered my realizations were profound; the objectives themselves brought me into the present time. No longer did I dwell on the shit I had done in the past.
At that point, I had caused some issues by bucking authority. I was rude and blatantly broke the rules. I had gone wrong for years because of my own lack of ethics. This was addressed during the last part of the program, life skills. At the beginning of the curriculum, I was a little hesitant to delve into my past. I pushed through and wrote out my life story, which started to open my eyes. I began to look at how my actions caused my family and friends to shun me. I wrote letters to each of them. That opened a dialogue, and I felt a great sense of relief. It gives me hope that all of us can move on from the past. It was disappointing and painful for them to watch me destroy myself.
I was still bucking authority. I ended up talking with one of the staff, and we found and addressed what I have always needed to handle. Then I realized how much the staff cares and truly want to see people succeed in life. I genuinely started to see how bucking and being a jerk caused me so many issues. Not only for me, but it took the time and resources of those around me. I had to adjust, but I put forth the effect and could see how great my ethics affect my fate.
I then started to take responsibility for all the wrongdoings in my past. I gained the knowledge to recognize how my wrongdoings can significantly affect my survival. I do not have to beat myself up anymore over what happened in the past. I determine who I am and what actions I take. I achieved a great sense of relief, taking responsibility for my past wrongdoings.
