How I Won the Fight This Time Around

Lonny Narconon Graduate

Before I came to Narconon, I was literally headed for my deathbed. As a matter of fact, my ex-wife had found me unresponsive in my car where I had been living on and off for the past year.

To this day, I still do not recall coming within inches from certain death due to HEAVY opiate and meth abuse.

I had figured there were no options available to me. I thought for sure I was a marked for death and there was no other way out.

I had no more or insurance for rehab. My ex-wife contacted Narconon in Louisiana and within a few hours, I received a call from the director in Louisiana telling me that I would be on a plane within 12 hours. Sure enough, I was in Louisiana within the next 24 hours.

I don’t remember who greeted me when I arrived because I was still very out of it. I spent the next 7 days healing and getting rid of toxins in my body. I don’t remember a lot from that time but what I do remember is that everyone there was extremely nice and most of them had been through what I was going through.

Around day 5 or 6 at the center, I was slowly but surely starting to come around and meeting some of the students and more of the staff. I felt extremely welcomed everywhere I went and had a real team on my side.

“I remember standing there thinking to myself
that I had never seen so clearly in my life.”

After day 7, I started going to classes and learning all the necessary tools on how to win the fight this time around. Then I did the sauna program which was one of the biggest wins I received while in Louisiana.

While I was doing the sauna program, it was like something hit me in the back of the head and I opened my eyes and I remember standing there thinking to myself that I had never seen so clearly in my life. I spent about another 2 weeks in the sauna program and every day just got better and better. I started to take the program very, very seriously at that point.

I then went to classes and learned more and more about how to be comfortable with myself. I had never learned how to be comfortable with myself. I never thought about being comfortable with myself—but I now know how to totally be comfortable with myself.

Then I started learning the brains of it all. It just really went 1,2,3 after all of that. For the first time in over 20 years I found out that I could be funny, I could be friendly, I could wake up and not be sick and I could love myself again.

I’m tearing up thinking about just how beautiful it is to me that I have FINALLY overcome the demons inside me. Every day STILL gets better and better.

I know you always hear people say “if I can do it, so can you.” Well, that meaning has never been truer than it is coming out of me.

I’m forever grateful for Narconon and my ex-wife for making the call or else I would likely not be writing this now. I get to watch my son grow up and I am most grateful for that.

Narconon is the only way to go if you are battling any kind of drug or alcohol addiction.

Bless the entire staff and all of the students I attended with in Louisiana.
