Sometimes there are things that happen in life that really test individuals and have the possibility of pushing them over the edge. I have dealt with so many different things and I continue to deal with a variety of things. The difference today is that I am clean and sober and I have my wits about me. Before when I was faced with difficult situations I would collapse under pressure and turn to my crutch, methamphetamine, and regardless of anything else chaos would always follow. The way I used to live and deal with life was undesirable to say the least. I hated it and I hated myself. But today is a much different story. I can deal with life in a much more conducive way and I don’t allow myself to break under pressure. It wasn’t an easy process to fix myself and the way I dealt with life but it was achievable and I feel that I have definitely attained a much better quality of life. I was able to pull it together and mend my life because of the Narconon Fresh Start program. It was an arduous process but it was well worth it. I thank Narconon and Sunshine Summit Lodge everyday for what I have today because I would be lost otherwise.
