What I feel right now is just unexplainable. I feel that I have become a new person—I can feel my new life about to start. It’s hard for me to believe what I experienced today. I can’t even remember a time when I felt like this. I have never felt so calm, so relaxed and as free as I do now. I just feel like myself completely. I feel complete.
Today I had very good wins. I had two important realizations. The first realization is that I didn’t appreciate everything that I had and the things that my parents gave me. Before, I thought that they were obligated to do everything they were doing for me, and I really didn’t appreciate when other people did good things for me. I just wasn’t grateful.
What are the objectives? When a person uses, they become introverted and focused on their tumultuous inner life. The drugs in turn dull the distress, and when they are first removed, the physical and mental pain can be overwhelming…
When I first started the New Life Detoxification Program, I was feeling “spaced out.” I wasn’t sleeping well and I was thinking too much.
Cannabis or marijuana is the most popular psychoactive substance worldwide. The marijuana plant contains 400 different chemicals. The one which creates the greatest effect on the human body and mind is called delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol or THC . Marijuana can be taken in a number of different ways.
I became a drug addict 5 years ago at the age of 14 and my life during that time was consumed with just two things—drugs and money. I was unhealthy, impatient, uncommunicative, aggressive and I didn’t trust anything or anyone around me. Then I came to Narconon Balkan to get rehabilitated.
This course was the best part of this program for me. When I first started it was very good to really understand the definition of “personal values” and to then see how I changed from that point on.
Having finished the Objectives, I was very excited to start educating myself further with the three life skills courses. The first course is called Overcoming Ups and Downs in Life and on this course, I learned how to recognize which people have social characteristics and those who are antisocial.
The Overcoming Ups & Downs in Life course helped me understand a lot of new things about my life and things about other people I never knew before. I learned about the characteristics that make up a social personality and those which make up a person who is anti-social.
In this success story, I really have so much to say. When I started with the Objectives it felt very unpleasant to do drills for such a long time. I was trying to manipulate and also I didn’t understand that I was such a bad influence on a lot of things.
