A Clean and Happy New Year thanks to Sunshine Summit Lodge

I am alive and happy and doing well in this year of 2013 and that is a feat that I did not think would be possible a few years ago.  Before I got clean I was very pessimistic about staying clean and sober.  I simply didn’t think it was possible because I felt like I was too far gone.  But I went to Narconon Sunshine Summit Lodge over three years ago and I had my entire life changed thanks to the staff and program there.  I took the opportunity to make my life better and trim the proverbial fat in my life.  I let go of the negative stuff that was dragging me down and I dealt with the issuesthat I thought would plague me forever.  Since completing the program my life has been getting better every day, every week, every month and every year!  It feels amazing to make it into another year with such a positive outlook on life.  I know that i am in control of my life and my decisions and there is no addiction that is holding me down.  The pipe that once controlled my every action is so far behind me and I NEVER want to go back.  I got to spend this new year with my family and friends and I look forward to the upcoming years so that I can do it again.  I’m clean, sober, in control and ready to take on another year and make it even better than the previous 3 clean years.  Thank you Sunshine Summit Lodge for giving me my life back and the opportunity to live without drugs.  Happy New Year!

  1. The New Years of 2013 was my first New Years that I was clean and sober. Not once did I think about getting high or getting drunk. I had the mindset that I was clean and sober and I made my decisions based upon that I had had a great time without any substances in my body. It’s funny actually because I was clean and sober for the New Year but I went out to the local park to see the fireworks that my town has for the holiday. When I was there I saw so many drunk and wasted people and they looked and acted absolutely ridiculous. As I watched all the people around me celebrating the New Year with alcohol and drugs I felt so embarrassed for them. They were being so dumb and annoying and it really emphasized the reasons of why I choose to stay clean. I respect myself too much now to let myself sink back into the stupid antics that I used to be so fond of. I genuinely enjoy being clean and sober and I especially enjoy spending quality time with my family and loved ones. It was a great experience to be clean and sober for the New Year. I hope to do it for the rest of my life.

  2. Woo-Hoo! Good-bye 2012 and hello 2013! I’m so freaking excited for the New Year and I’m even more elated that I got to ring in the new year sober and clean. I have had a lot of tumultuous turns throughout my life and every New Year I would make the resolution that I would be done with the B.S. and that I’d be sober that year. Unfortunately my resolution never came true on a New Year but it did come true. I love where I am at in life today because I am no longer a slave to drugs, alcohol, and the party-life mentality. There are so many better things in life that don’t revolve around partying and getting wasted and I have those better things in my life today. I hated who I was before and I hated what my life had become. I had no respect for myself or anything else. But guess what? I am not who I used to be and I am a better person today! I don’t have to live with the guilt of my past because I have taken responsibility for it, made up the damages, and I am moving forward and let me tell you, it couldn’t feel any better! So keep on rocking out clean and sober bigblue2539 and use everything you learned from Sunshine Summit Lodge because I know I do and I will. Happy New Year to all in 2013
