What a great Valentine’s Day! I am clean and sober and I get to spend some quality time with the people that I love. Doing just that is something that I never really paid attention to or put any value upon when I was in the midst of my addiction. Before going to Sunshine Summit Lodge I thought that Valentine’s Day was a sappy holiday and that it was only meant for your significant other and therefore I never really paid attention to it. But today, three years after graduating the Narconon Program, I can see that Valentine’s Day is much more important. It is a day that allows us to let ALL of the people that we love know that we care about them. I see now that I have a lot of people in my life that love me and I love them back and it is not just my girlfriend. I see how important the love is for not only my girlfriend but also my parents, my sibling, and my son. Again, acknowledging the fact that I love people and a lot of people love me was an absent idea when I was using drugs and alcohol because, quite frankly, I thought the only thing I loved was my drugs but I was so wrong! After cleaning up my life and conquering my addiction at Sunshine Summit Lodge I see how important it is and how valuable it is to let all the people that you love know just how important they are to you. It is just another important life lesson that I learned from doing my Narconon Program. It is truly amazing what you can learn about yourself and your life when you chose to live without drugs.
