After completing sauna I feel amazing! I feel that I can finally understand what the expression “look on the bright side” means because now my outlook on life has changed. Before I didn’t care about what I put into my body or how I treated myself. Through being here and learning how to take care of myself and how important good nutrition, exercise and healthy living is to maintain my sobriety there is no way that I’m going back to the way I used to live. I’ve invested so much already in getting this far in my program and achieving sobriety that I don’t want to jeopardize it. I’m going to keep up exercising and eating right so that I don’t fall back into bad habits.
This program has taught me so much more than I ever thought it would. I anticipated learning how to get off drugs but the education that I’m getting while I’m here is helping me in every area of my life! My family tells me when they talk to me they can actually hear my improvement in my voice and the topics I’m discussing with them. I can now make plans for my future when I return home instead of living day to day and no knowing what’s around the corner. Even though my addiction hurt me and those I love, by looking on the bright side I’m able to see that it brought me to Narconon Fresh Start and the new life that I’m excited to have when I graduate and go back home no longer an addict but as a fully recovered person = )
