Understanding What’s Needed to Stay Drug-Free

A New Understanding

After completing the Personal Values book, I feel a sense of a big weight being lifted off my shoulders. However painful it may have been going through it. I’m glad I did. I’ve taken a good, detailed look at how my decisions have affected me and the people close to me. Even actions as small as not communicating something that’s troubling you, not caring for your personal space, etc will affect your life in a negative way. This book has given me a new understanding of what it means and takes to make good decisions and live a happy life.


My Mind Feels Much Clearer

My mind feels much clearer every time I go to sauna. I’m feeling more comfortable and able to tolerate it.


Awareness Of My Environment Has Expanded

Today I began the final objective, # 15. As I have progressed through the course, my familiarity and awareness of my environment has expanded. Like a flower opening up to receive the glorious rays of morning sunshine, every fiber of my being is anxiously awaiting the next step ahead of me.


I Am Really Starting To Realize Who I Am

So I’m about to finish up with my Objectives and I am really starting to realize who I am and what I’m all about. Time is of the essence and I’ve finally figured out that living in present time is exactly what I was missing out on while using. I’m very thankful to have gotten a second chance. I love this whole program and would recommend it to anyone!!


This Has Been A Great Learning Experience

Since I have become an intake here at Narconon Fresh Start, I’ve had the privilege to wear the hats of an ED, Theory Supervisor and Objectives Supervisor. This has been a great learning experience and an awesome win for me. Being able to assist the students in each area and seeing them learn and grow is amazing. This is what I live for. This is what makes me a better man.


I’ve Learned To Have Better Control

Objectives is interesting, to say the least, but I’ve already become more patient. I’ve learned to have better control over my actions and do things I don’t necessarily want to do. Despite that, I do things to the best of my ability.


Present State Of Mind

Objective 15 is the longest and most tedious of them, but going through 1-14 has prepared my twin and myself for it. It does help put me in a present state of mind and to be more aware of my surroundings.


Recognizing Antisocial Characteristics

After planning out battle plans I feel at ease knowing I’ll easily recognize antisocial characteristics and therefore it will be much easier for me to steer clear of these people that may cause me to get to get involved in destructive acts. With my battle plans I’ll utilize them as a reminder of where I came from and where I want to go with my life. The battle plans will help me maintain a routine daily and stay on top of things that are important for my survival.


Starting To Feel More Relieved

I am writing letters to everyone in my life that matters. This is not easy for me to do, but as I do them I am starting to feel more relieved.


A Better Me

This week hasn’t been easy at all!! Writing about my family – fighting with them, hiding from them, separating myself from them because I was high and doing drugs around them and behind closed doors. I know this is only benefiting me in the long run. I repeated these actions and now I need to purge them out on paper to let go of all my built up guilt and pain I’ve kept inside for so many years. I love my family too much to hold anything back. I’m leaving no rock unturned and I will be a better me for doing this the right way for myself and for them. I will be able to help myself and be able to share my journey with others and hopefully help many more people with the skills that I’ve learned and been blessed with this second chance at making my life worth living clean and sober. No more numbing my feelings – happy, sad, angry etc. I welcome them all no matter how much it hurts. I’m worth all of this. Thank you Narconon Fresh Start staff and most importantly my family!!


Ready To Use My New Skills

I am very excited to be approaching the end of my last Objective. I feel I have gotten a lot out of Objectives and am ready to use my new skills when I leave Narconon Fresh Start.


Confident About Going Home

Today I am working on a detailed plan to help me make progress in all areas of my life. This makes me feel very confident about going home because I will know exactly what I need to do. I’m so excited to go home and follow through with my plans and make progress.


Communicating Effectively

I am happy to say that I feel much more relief in my life because I have properly handled the people in my life that were causing me trouble. I have reviewed the qualities of the social and the antisocial personalities and can effectively identify how the people in my life fall into one category or the other. Knowing this tech enables me to communicate (or not communicate) with people in my life effectively and in a way that keeps me out of harms way. Thank you again to the Narconon Fresh Start staff!!


Feeling Accomplished

Today was a very good day. I finished up my OW’s and I feel really good about that and I’ve started on conditions. I feel very accomplished today.


I Have So Much Energy Now

Today was a great day in course and working with the ethics officer to complete a major PTS handle in preparation for my return home. I experienced so much relief. I have so much energy now! Thank you to the Narconon Fresh Start staff!!


Understanding How To Improve My Conditions In Life

After completing the Conditions In Life book, I’ve learned how to identify my condition in life and what steps I need to take to work my way out of it and back up to the normal condition! I’m very excited to do what I need to do, regardless how long it takes when I go home now that I have a better understanding of how to improve my conditions in life.
