ONCE AN ALCOHOLIC
Breaking up with alcohol was by far one of the hardest things I’ve had to do. Because I loved alcohol and the thought of living without it not only terrified me but in a sick and twisted way it sort of broke my heart.
One of the things that sets the Narconon Program apart from other programs is the belief that if a person is able to fully handle their addiction they no longer need to think of themselves as an addict or an alcoholic.
Narconon takes a different approach to addiction treatment than traditional 12-step models. At Narconon, we do not believe that relapse has to be a part of recovery.
After a particularly self-destructive night of drinking I went home to my parents house. My family all sat me down and I remember telling my brother that overall I felt I was “ok“. I’ll never forget the look that he gave me when he said “you shouldn’t have to settle for just being “ok“ you should be able to be happy.“
