I have found all of the stages of the Narconon Fresh Start program to be of great help to me. “Sauna” helped to cleanse my body of toxic chemicals. “Objectives” helped me to stay focused in present time. “Course” has helped me to go back in time and to take an honest, and objective view of my life.

I Have Discovered A Lot About Myself

Self DiscoveryThis week while writing OW’s, I have discovered a lot about myself as far as the behaviors I have exhibited to my friends, family and breaking the law. I know that if I continue to do these behaviors I will end up on the same path I was on which is no longer the way I want to go. I also feel like OW’s can teach a large amount of patience which could also help me in the real world moving forward.

Beneficial Course Work

I Feel Very Confident that I Can Continue My Sobriety

Confident in Staying SoberSo far, as I’ve been working through course, I’ve realized how much I never want to use again. I never want to go back to that lifestyle because I’ve realized how much more successful my life can be by continuing to remain sober. I feel very confident that I can continue my sobriety and keep my life on the right track. Mind becomes cleaner and clearer the more I write about my drug usage. It feels good to gain memory back. Having emotions feels great and makes me know I’m alive.

As Objectives has progressed, I have started to see the benefits of them. Lately, I have not begun to think about the past as much nor the future.

This helps when you have awesome supervisors looking over you.
