Before I came to Narconon I was very heavy into heroin. That was my drug of choice. Had no other interests whatsoever. It was all strictly get heroin and use heroin. I had no passion for life or people in my life. It was just all about me. Worst day was overdosing and damn near killing myself and drowning in a river and I was not breathing for 3 ½ minutes. That kind of sent me into a, maybe I need some help.
So, when I got to Narconon, everyone treated me with upmost respect. These people have actually been through it. They know what I was going through. They’ve done it, they’ve seen it. They’ve lived it, you know.
It might sound a little weird but I felt responsible again, after I finished my program. Only thing I’ve ever finished before I started was a jail sentence and that’s nothing to be proud of. But I got here and I did everything to the fullest.
The man I am today, you would never be able to tell from the man I was when I got here. I’ve never been more happy with myself, more confident in myself, in my abilities. I can look at myself in the mirror again today and say, “This is who I am and this is what I am going to do.”
