Third times the charm

Never did I think I think that I would come back to Narconon for a third time, I thought I could do this on my own. At first, I was incredibly down on myself for coming back and did not want to be here. But, the fact is that I realized I have had more amazing and substantial wins and gains by coming back. I am taking my review program and my life much more serious now. Never could I do this before, but now I have the ability and look at myself in the mirror and tell myself that I am beautiful and I love the real Amber. I haven’t been the real, happy, optimistic, and sober Amber in 6 years, but this time I am more than ready to be the woman I know I am. No matter what others may say I know that the things I have learned here are giving me the strength to not only stay sober, but live a life with endless possibilities.

Before I came here I didn’t see anything of myself, I thought I would be a junkie forever and not even live to the age of 30. Now, all I see is a woman with amazing potential and living a long fulfilling life. I don’t only want this life for me, but I want it for every person who has gone through the same hardships as me. I will be turning 20 years old soon and this will be my first sober birthday in 6 years. And, to be completely honest I am ecstatic for it. My life used to be full of people and things that only brought me down, but I have moved on from that life and fully disconnected from that horrible lifestyle this time. I can’t even express my thanks and appreciation on for every person here. I have my life back and I’m so happy now that I am confident in my sobriety. Love the life you live, live the life you love.

I Will Not Give Up

I woke up and was a miserable strung out junkie and a bad father no matter how much I tried. I looked up one morning to find an interventionist was there in front of me. I honestly felt like it was a second chance to fix my problems, not just someone pointing out all the ways I had messed up. I realize that I don’t know how to live sober. Now that I’ve found Narconon Fresh Start I’m going to try it someone else’s way.

Today, I feel as though I’ve had a lot of wins. The fact that I feel like sleeping without drugs is a major win for me. I will not give up!
