I Am Determined to Be The Best I Can Be
Before coming to rehab I was lost and in pain. My perspective on life was short-term and broken. I focused on immediate gratification instead of laying long-term plans. I did not put in the energy and time to lay a solid foundation for my future but instead sought to end my life. I fully embraced being an addict and let go of all control. I lied to my family and friends and destroyed a future I had worked very hard for. I have a long road ahead to repair trust and deceit. All of this being said, I have found peace and solace.
“With the tools I have been given and how I have applied them, I have no doubt I will not fail. I will do this with the love and support of my family. I will not rest until I have become the son I was always supposed to be and the brother I should be.”
I have found my calling and am determined to be the best I can and be one of the best in the world. It is a hefty goal but I know what it will take to reach that goal, and that is total dedication to the principals and practices instilled in this place. With the tools I have been given and how I have applied them, I have no doubt I will not fail. I will do this with the love and support of my family. I will not rest until I have become the son I was always supposed to be and the brother I should be.
My commitment to my new life is to be resolute and I intend to change my story from one of relapse and rehab to change and success. I am not afraid to leave rehab and I feel surer of myself than ever before. If I slip I will reach out for help because I know people are willing and want to see me get better. I just want to be good. Thank you for everything. Thank you for my life back.

Before I came to Narconon, I was very depressed, anxious and had an overwhelming sense of guilt. I was doing whatever I had to do in order to get what I needed to support my habit. Even if that meant hurting people, lying and stealing. I had no limit to the extent I would go to just to get high. I wasn’t a good person. I wasn’t a happy person.
After staying at Narconon for nearly four months, I feel a lot better about myself and my life. I look forward to living a healthy prosperous life and to be free of drugs. I am now able to live in the moment feeling content and focused. I am able to confront any obstacles that come my way in the future in a positive manner. I no longer feel guilty, anxious or depressed. I plan on leading a good life with good habits like reading, writing, exercising and keeping a good job.

I am very proud of myself for coming as far as I have. I feel that I can apply the knowledge I have learned here in my life. My anxiety and depression levels have decreased to such an extent that I am no longer concerned about the issues I once had. Being here in this program has changed me for the better and I am so happy with where I am and I’m extremely grateful to all the staff and students for always being there for me whenever I needed them. Thank you so much for helping me become the person I always wanted to be.
